Central Missouri Speedway
July 3, 2019
For Immediate Release
(Warrensburg, MO) It is time for the 19th Annual Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl at Central Missouri Speedway honoring the Independence Day week and late track announcer Tom Wilson. Headlining the two nights of action is the $5,000-to-win, 50-lap A-Mod main event on Saturday.
Prior to finalizing the lineup for the Saturday finale, A-Mod drivers will compete in three rounds of heat races to determine pre-main event and main event starting grids. The format remains the same as last year; however, due to the fairness of all drivers competing in all three rounds of heat race action on Friday, no night two entries are permitted. In plain language, if you do not race the heat races on Friday, you cannot compete on Saturday. All drivers must qualify through heat race competition round passing points accumulation.
In addition to A-Mod special events this weekend. Mod-Lites will race on Friday night for their annual $1,500-to-win Track Special Event and 25-lap finale. Street Stocks are on the program for both nights and will compete for bonus money put up by various sponsors, including Elite Auto Repair, B&D Transmission, and Eickleberry Concrete and Construction plus an anonymous business sponsor donor.
The ULMA Late Models return to center stage at CMS on Saturday, this time for the finale of the ULMA association’s annual ‘Triple Crown Shootout.’ Heading into this weekend’s action, Aaron Marrant and Kaeden Cornell are tied for the overall ULMA point’s lead and both are expected to compete at CMS on Saturday. The ULMA group will be racing with a heavy heart after the tragic loss of two-time ULMA champion Jason Russell, who was killed in a boating accident last weekend.
On Friday, July 5th and Saturday, July 6th, for the 19th Annual Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl Special Event weekend, adult general admission is $15, Active Military $12, Senior Citizens ages 65 to 74 years $12, Kids ages 6 to 12 years $6, Senior Citizens 75 and older free, Children 5 and under free. All pit passes, regardless of age are $40. All minors 18 years and older will require a minor release form, available on-site.
Promoters Earl and Susan Walls announced last Saturday during the annual fireworks extravaganza that they have decided to add fireworks into the mix again this Saturday with another full-on fireworks display put on by their grandson Brandon Walls after the final checkered flag on Saturday.
Drivers are reminded that there are no “track” registration fees this weekend and there will be no “track” points awarded in any of the competing classes. A-Mod and Mod-Lite drivers will have an entry fee as detailed on the CMS BBQ BOWL INFO frequently asked questions document, which is conveniently located on the track’s website at www.centralmissourispeedway.net. The document contains detailed information on race payouts for all classes, fees and admissions, start times, program flow, and much more! All pit passes are sold separately per night from any entry fees and all pit passes are $40 each, per night, regardless of person’s age.
As a reminder to all drivers and fans, CMS does not accept credit cards; however, there are two ATM machines available on-site, one on the front stretch, one on pit side. Drivers may pay entries and pit passes with a check; however, the check must contain Tax ID or Driver’s License number.

US Hwy 13 north of Warrensburg is now under construction. According to the Johnson County EDC,” The City of Warrensburg is beginning construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Business Route MO-13 and Hawthorne Blvd. This is just north of Walmart, Applebee’s and Aldi’s. There will be some temporary detours from time to time.” CMS suggests using the Hwy 13 north bypass east of Warrensburg from US Hwy 50 as an alternate route if coming to CMS from the south.
