Speedway Motors Midwest Region lights up at I-80 Speedway

TULSA, Okla.- After a long Midwest winter, the coming of Spring signals the start of dirt track racing in the Midwest and with it, the start of the 2013 Speedway Motors Midwest Region season.

Marking the ninth season for the Speedway Motors backed region, the 2013 opener will be the two-day Tighton Tools Spring Meltdown at the four-tenths mile I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb on Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 with practice on Thursday, April 4. 

A favorite of the Midwest drivers, the I-80 Speedway will offer a $2,500 payday to the winner each night and will combine the Speedway Motors Midwest Region with the CBC/MLRA Super Late Models and well as varied classes of Modifieds with B-Mods Friday and A-Mods on Saturday. 

Jack Dover enters the 2013 season as the defending champion of the Speedway Motors Midwest Region. The 2012 season was Dover’s third Midwest triumph, and second consecutive title ahead of Jordan Boston.  

Going into a track that has both rewarded and punished the Springfield driver, Dover’s final win of the 2012 season that clinched his third title came at the I-80 Speedway on night one of the Fall Brawl. Earlier that season however, a horrific crash at the I-80 Speedway ended Dover’s Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour bid and resulted in his returning to the Midwest Region. Dover will again utilize Roush/Yates power inside an Eagle Motorsports Chassis. 

Looking forward to the opening weekend, Thursday’s practice will be held from 6:00 P.M. to 9:30 P.M. All drivers are advised to provide their own push vehicle. Practice will be $20 for drivers and $10 for all others. The grandstands will be open with free admission but with limited, if no, facilities available.

Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 admission will be $22 each night with kids 6-12 years of age admitted for $5. Kids 5 years and younger will be allowed into the grandstands for free. 

Start times from the Tighton Tools Spring Meltdown will see Friday’s card beginning at 7:15 P.M. with gates opening at 5:30 P.M. Saturday’s time will see a start time of 5:55 P.M. with gates opening at 4:30 P.M.
