ENNIS, Texas – The ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating will open this season with a bang as the inaugural Smiley’s Racing Products Texas Wingless Nationals comes to Big O Speedway March 4-6.
Competing racers will have a shot at a $10,300 payday during the three-day event.
Set to follow the format used at the Hockett/McMillin Memorial, teams will compete each night, with cumulative event points setting the stage for Saturday’s finale.
However, if the number of entries reaches 80, the field will be split into two qualifying nights.
The format will still follow the same heat race and qualifier layout, with event points awarded and combined to set Saturday night’s fields. Passing points will be used to break any tie in the event points.
Following the completion of Friday’s program, event points will be totaled, with the top eight locked in – straight up – into Saturday’s A Feature.
All other drivers will be lined up into four last chance qualifiers on Saturday.
The entry fee is $60 in advance and $100 the day of the race. Pit passes on March 4-5 are $35 per day and $40 on March 6. Three-day pit passes are $100.
Team can register online here until March 3.
The event will be preceded by an open practice on March 3 from 6-9 p.m. CT. On all race days, the pits will open at 3 p.m., with grandstands opening at 5 p.m. Hot laps will be at 6:15 p.m. with racing beginning at 7 p.m.
Grandstand tickets are $15 per day on March 4-5. March 6 tickets are $20.
The two preliminary nights will pay $1,000 to win and $100 to start, with $50 to all non-qualifiers.
Saturday’s race will be $10,300 to win and $400 to start, with $50 to all non-qualifiers.
The event is being put on by ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series owner and director Nathan Moore.
