We are all very excited to see the doors open up at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, IA this Friday and we are opening the season with the very exciting 410 Outlaw Winged Sprint Cars, special thanks to Driver Websites.com and Pizza Ranch of Rock Rapids!
This is going to be an exciting season and we can't wait to get it started. We have spent many hours on the track, re-shaping the corners, and getting this to an amazing 80 foot wide 3-4 wide racing surface and it is just going to breathe excitement. We added over a hundred loads of dirt on the track last fall and have been working it in throughout this spring. The track is ready and it is going to be a blast for both the fans and the drivers! With the 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars racing at over 120 MPH, and the way the track is for this year, we will be seeing an amazing race! The Hobby Stocks, B-Modifieds, Stock Cars and HRA Sprints will also be there, and I am sure all of these classes will put on a heck of a show this Friday!
Come see all the great local 410 Sprint Car drivers in the area compete for $2500 to win this Friday, the 18th of May! Tony Bruce Jr. of Liberal, Kansas will be making the trip up to Rocky as well as Terry McCarl, Austin McCarl, Gregg Bakker, and Rock Rapids very own Jody Rosenboom! Races start at 7:30 PM with the back gate opening up at 5PM.
General Admission tickets for our 410 Outlaw Winged Sprint Car Special will be $15.00 with the VIP for $25, and Season Ticket Holders will get to use the VIP this week. Kids are only $2.00, 8 and under are FREE. Pit passes are $25 unless you are a HRA member, then they are only $20.
To add to the excitment, the Eagle Motorsports/Don Ott Racing Engines "Raffle Car" will also be in the Midway at the track this Friday.
