The Ozark Mountain Super Shifters bring their high-RPM, wheels-in-the-air action and there is a Nostalgia Pro Stock match race between the Warren Johnson Tribute Camaro and the Rod Shop Dodge as part of the festivities this weekend at ERP.
“These two cars will be really cool to watch and they are a throwback to how the Pro Stocks were in their hey-day,” said Kramer.
The street-legal, turbo-charged Hayabusa motorcycles will be in attendance at the track making passes down the eighth-mile drag strip at over 160 miles-per-hour. They will be racing all of their classes on Saturday with competitors invading the track from several states. A huge fireworks display always takes place after the pro show in the evening.
The weekend of racing concludes with more bracket racing on Sunday. This event is huge and is always one of the first ones I write down on my calendar to attend.
I’m looking forward to seeing Garlits and to be able to hear one of the most well-known voices in auto racing in Frey. I don’t know how they do it, but they make this event better and better each year. It is going to be tough to beat this year’s event.
The Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa kicks off the July 4th racing festivities tomorrow night with their 18th Annual Budweiser Stock Car Shootout. The event is being sponsored by Doll Distributing and Musco Lighting.
The Stock Cars will be gunning for a $1,500 top prize. The Hobby Stocks, Modifieds and Sport Modifieds have had an extra one-hundred dollars added to each of their top prizes while the Sport Compacts have had an extra fifty dollars added to the winning spot.
With the expected large turnout of extra cars, they will be starting an hour earlier than normal. Hot laps start at 6 p.m. and racing action will follow at around 6:30 p.m. It has been noted that the ever-popular Budweiser girls will be in attendance to hand out the trophies to the winners.
