This tidbits update will hopefully be the start of something new here on tidbits as we are showcasing the track schedules for each that have placed ads here on tidbits and are good through the 2011 race season.
We kick things off with Mid-America Speedway in South Coffeyville, Oklahoma.
It will be another year of Saturday night racing for track owner Kenny Garris and his Mid-America Speedway with weekly divisions that include USRA sanctioned modifieds, B- mods, pure stocks, street stocks, factory stocks, non-wing turfs and dwarf cars.
There will also be plenty of specials at the track which will include ASCS sooner region and possibly NCRA sprints, NCRA southern sport mods, ASCS2 and midgets, OCRS and SMP Speedweeks.
The originally scheduled USMTS show for Friday, March 11th, will not happen as no agreement for this race has been made at this time.
Their 2011 race season gets underway on Saturday, March 26th featuring an enduro and demolition derby. The official big season opener gets underway just one week later as the ASCS Sooner region also kicks off their 2011 at the track on Saturday night, April 2nd. Support classes for this event will be their regular divisions mentioned above.
April 16th the track will take everybodys mind off the IRS deadline with a $500 to win event for outlaw street division.
ASCS2 and the midgets will make the first of their three appearances on Saturday night, April 30th. Other dates will be on August 20th and September 3rd. The OCRS will make a July 2nd appearance for the 3rd annual Fireworks Spectacular! As of this time, that is the only OCRS date that is scheduled but I would assume there will be one or two more added.
The above mentioned ASCS Sooner region date is all that is inked at this time but there are rumblings of a co-sanctioned deal with the NCRA sprint car series. Stay tuned.
As mentioned, the track runs weekly sanctioned USRA modifieds where last season, Rodney Siggs picked up that divisions championship.
New this year, the track is working closely with Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kansas as both tracks sit a mere fifteen miles apart. After spending the past couple of years competing against each other for cars and drivers, this year Caney has switched to Friday nights but will not run modifieds. All other divisions will see both tracks using same rules.
Whether you're headed there for sprints, midgets, ASCS2 or some modified specials, you won't be disappointed in the track nor the facility as it is one of the best in the area. To find out more information on the track, click on the track ad that is posted above.
