POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour Sprint Series Preps For Sophomore Season

After a successful inaugural campaign in 2019, the POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour Non-Wing Sprint Series will branch out in 2020. New venues and extra bonuses dot the upcoming season’s landscape.

“The racers have been asking for this for a while, and we’re glad to see Cocopah [Speedway] and Aztec [Speedway] 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.”

New Mexico’s Vado Speedway Park

Currently, 12 events are on the docket for the 2020 POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour. As many as four additional dates are expected to be added. The slate includes trips to Vado Speedway Park (Vado, New Mexico), Aztec Speedway (Aztec, New Mexico) and Cocopah Speedway (Somerton, Arizona).

It all begins on Saturday, March 21 with the season opener at Cocopah Speedway, the first race in series history outside of New Mexico. Additionally, a Halloween weekend double-dip features Cocopah Speedway with races on October 30-31. Aztec Speedway debuts on the tour with a pair of shows on September 11-12.

The newly-built, state-of-the-art facility, Vado Speedway Park, will remain at the core of the POWRi Lucas Oil Border Tour schedule with seven shows. Dates at the 3/8-mile oval include April 4, May 9, June 13, July 18, August 8 and the season finale “Turkey Bowl” on November 27-28.

Notably 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.
