WHEATLAND, Mo. – The third annual Impact Signs, Awnings, & Wraps Open Wheel Showdown, featuring the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region Winged Sprint Cars, The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series, and the WAR Wingless Auto Racing Sprint Cars takes place Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway.
“Where else in the country can you see ASCS Winged Sprint Cars, the POWRi National Midget Series, and Non-Wing Sprint Cars on the same night?” said Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson. “We lost this event to a late spring snow last year, but the weather man is calling for sunny skies and 77 degrees this year, so it should be a fantastic day for open-wheel racing.”
Christopher Bell, a Chili Bowl preliminary main event winner, sits atop the POWRi National points standings with 760 points, followed by 17-year old Tanner Thorson with 600 points. Both Bell and Thorson drive for the Keith Kunz team, with Toyota power.
Zach “The Dauminator” Daum, the 2013 POWRi National Champion and 2014 Chili Bowl qualifier, occupies the third spot in points. California hot-shoe Rico Abreu sits just 40 points out of third. Tyler Thomas rounds out the top five in the POWRi National point standings.
