BELLEVILLE, Ill. – After a successful inaugural campaign centered around Vado Speedway Park, the POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour Non-Wing Sprint Series will branch out this year with new venues and extra bonuses on the line.
“The racers have been asking for this for awhile and we’re glad to see Cocopah and Aztec come aboard,” said Rue Stone, Border Tour Series Director. “With this expanded schedule, we were also able to increase this year’s point fund to $10,000. I’m hoping to see several teams competing for the championship in 2020.”
A total of 16 events are on the docket for the POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour this year with trips to Vado (N.M.), Aztec (N.M.) and Cocopah (Ariz.) on tap.
It all begins on March 21 with the season opener at Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway, the first race in series history outside of New Mexico.
A Halloween weekend double dip will feature Cocopah with races on Oct. 30-31. Aztec Speedway will debut on the tour with a pair of shows on Sept. 11-12.
Vado Speedway Park will remain at the core of the POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour schedule, with seven shows on the schedule. Dates at Vado include April 4, May 9, June 13, July 18, August 8 and the season-ending Turkey Bowl on Nov. 27-28.
New for 2020, Griffin’s Propane will come on board as the presenting sponsor of the series.
“I would personally like to thank Royal Jones, owner of Vado Speedway Park and Mesilla Valley Transportation, for his continued help and support as a huge contributing factor in helping grow this series,” added Stone.
