Working together is imperative for tracks. Some facilities are taking the lead. Two prime examples are Central Missouri Speedway (Warrensburg, Missouri) and Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kansas). For 2019 the Kansas City-area tracks will again work together on miniseries. Their goal is to promote cooperation and local racing, while offering bonuses to weekly competitors.
Just weeks after celebrating the 2018 season with the combined championship banquet, the tracks are pleased to announce two summer race series for the 2019 campaign. The first series takes place in the month of June with the second one occupying the month of August.
The month of June will play host to the Top Dog Series. During this miniseries each track will host five events for drivers to accumulate points. At the end of of the month a series champion will be crowned between the two tracks. Race divisions for the miniseries include A-Mods, B-Mods, Mod-Lites, and Pure Stocks.
The second series begins in August and runs for five weeks. Again using an accumulative championship point system, an overall champion for each division will be crowned at the conclusion.. Race divisions for August include A-Mods, B-Mods, and E-Mods.
Lakeside Speedway is the longest-running sporting venue in the Kansas City metro. The track boasts a loyal and long-standing following of dedicated drivers and fans for its Friday night program.
Central Missouri Speedway owners and promoters Earl and Susan Walls are entering their 24th year of Saturday night race operations.
A combined purse, exceeding $21,000 is marked for participating drivers between the two miniseries. The Top-10 drivers in each race division will receive payouts. Complete details in each divisions will be announced at a later date. The payouts are over and above each of the tracks’ weekly race purses. In fact, the tracks will pay their standard, feature purses in addition to the special race series point’s fund at the end of the series.
