For Immediate Release
(Warrensburg, Missouri) Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) welcomes the return of the POWRi War Sprint League this Saturday for a $2,000-to-win special event. Joining sprints on the program are the NASCAR Weekly Race Series drivers competing in A-Mods, Super Stocks, B-mods, and Pure Stocks.
Heading into this weekend’s action, Wesley Smith of Nixa, Missouri, leads both the point standings and winner’s column with two wins on the season. Mario Clouser of Chatham, Illinois; Xavier Doney of nearby Odessa; Anthony Nicholson of Bartlett, Tennessee; and Riley Kreisel of Warsaw, make up the top five. Clouser and Nicholson each have one victory to their name this year.
Last year, during the POWRi Sprint a-main, fans witnessed close action with Wesley Smith, Riley Kreisel, and Quinton Benson. A late-race run-in with the front-stretch wall ended Kreisel’s bid for the win as Benson ultimately took the victory over Smith.
Drivers and fans on the pits side of the speedway will need to pay extra attention and caution this weekend as the sprint cars will exit the track from turn two and drive back into the pit area past the pit entrance building. This method allows for continuous movement up to and around the staging area for oncoming races.
For this weekend’s special event, NASCAR-licensed pit passes are $35 each, non-licensed $40, regardless of age. General Admission is $20 for Adults, Active-Duty Military and Senior Citizens aged 65 to 72 $15, Kids 6 to 12 years old $6, five and under free, 75 and older and individuals permanently confined to a wheelchair are free in the grandstands. Pit gates open at 4:30, followed by grandstand admission at 5, driver pill draw cutoff at 6:15 (no passing points if driver is a late check-in), pit meeting at 6:30, hot laps at 7, and racing at 7:30.
