Midway Speedway owner Jack Jones was quick to contact The Cash Money officials and withdraw the event from his track as everyone felt that this event needed to be at Monett.
Lebanon Midway Speedway will host the Tony Roper Memorial on Sunday Evening May 27th after it also had been dropped in namesake by Monett during the Memorial Holiday weekend with the cash Money Super Dirt Car Series Late Models to headline along with USRA B Mods and support classes to be named. The Roper family gave the blessing on the Tony Roper Memorial to go to Lebanon Midway as local race schedules are being finalized for the 2018 season as Midway will not compete on the Friday Night program that weekend.
Social Media and race fans handled this change in a very proper and respective approach and had a large impact on the situatuion. The public is heard and when things are handled properly, issues and situations can have solutions.
Lebanon Midway will start the 2018 race season on April 6th and is putting the final touches to the exciting dirt-track racing season. Located on East Highway 32 and B Highway 5 miles from Lebanon. Racing runs through The 1st Friday in August and then the Speedway moves to Saturday evening on Sat. Sept. 8th and run until the 1st week of November.
