TULSA, Okla. – Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports plans to bring six drivers to race in the inaugural Werco Manufacturing T-Town Showdown presented by B&H Contractors.

The two-night NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series event is scheduled for May 22-23 at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla.

The lineup will include three full-time USAC racers, including Oklahomans Cannon McIntosh in the No. 71K and Rookie of the Year contender Daison Pursley in the No. 9, as well as Pursley’s fellow rookie contender Buddy Kofoid, from Penngrove, Calif., in the No. 67.

McIntosh finished in the top-five at both Ocala, Fla., races in February and resides sixth in the standings, while Kofoid is fourth in points after three top-seven finishes and Pursley is eighth in the standings with three top-nine finishes in three races to his credit.

Joining the lineup for the T-Town Midget Showdown are first-time series competitors Jesse Love Jr. of Menlo Park, Calif., in the No. 97, Kaylee Bryson of Muskogee, Okla., in the No. 71 and Presley Truedson of Kennedy, Minn., in the No. 71x.

Love, a six-time USAC champion in the developmental HPD midget ranks, drove for KKM in a number of midget events last year, but next weekend’s Port City event will mark his USAC National Midget Series debut for the team.

Port City micro veteran Bryson, like Love, gained midget experience outside of USAC in 2019. She did so for Dave Mac Motorsports, while Truedson has previously driven for Daum Motorsports in USAC recently and made her KKM debut at the Chili Bowl in January.

Both nights at Port City will include full series points-paying events with a complete program each night that culminates with a feature event.

Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. CT, with hot laps scheduled for 6 p.m. A practice night on Thursday, May 21, will precede the event.

Seating capacity for the T-Town Midget Showdown will be limited to 400 spectators per night and tickets for each night can only be purchase in advance. Tickets are now on sale at https://usacracing.ticketspice.com/2020-t-town-midget-showdown.

Entries will also be limited and based on a combination of criteria that will cater to both national and regional teams. A maximum of six pit passes will be available for purchase with each car entry.

Pit passes obtained with entry are for pit entry and pit seating/viewing areas only.  A general admission ticket will be required for grandstand seating.

Teams that meet the listed criteria will be contacted by USAC and/or Port City Raceway and given a code which will enable them to register online.

Both nights of the T-Town Midget Showdown at Port City will be streamed live on FloRacing.
