$2500 to win Non-Wing Sprints Coming to Amarillo

Amarillo, Texas July 8, 2015 - Sprint car traditionalists will want to mark Saturday night, July 25, on your calendar as Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo, Texas will host the inaugural G.W. Elkins Southwestern Championships featuring the Elite Non-Wing Sprint Series based out of Texas. That nights championship feature winner will earn at least $2500 for the feature victory with the feature finale slated to pay $500.

As an added attraction for the night, vintage race cars will also be on display.

IMCA/Racesavor sprint rules will be in effect, sanctioned by the Elite Non-Wing Sprint Series, and the series will make their first ever visit to the speedway with drivers as far away as Indiana expected to compete.

Among the touring regulars expected including current point leader Patrick Stasa, Dustin Gates, Robert Vetter, former IMCA national sprint car champion Johnny Miller, Jeff Day, John Ricketts, Michael Day, Sebie Davis, Jeff Day, Jr. and Mitchell Clements.

The Peoples Champ, former USAC sprint car champion Dave Darland from Atlanta, Indiana will also be in competition, driving for Nathan Moore while fellow USAC competitor Shane Cockrum from Benton, Illinois will drive a Sebie Davis entry.

As mentioned, the winners share is at least $2500 to win with at least $500 to start the nights feature finally and, as we go to press, over $2000 has been raised and will be added to the total purse. The number will rise as more sponsors climb aboard this huge night of wingless sprint car racing hits the beautiful three-eighths mile, Route 66 Motor Speedway oval.

Among the vintage race cars and dirt track greats from the past expected on hand include Jiggs Founds, Bruce Leonard, Lynn Ratliff, Johnny Suggs, Ken Murphy, Randy Willingham, Jess Arnold, Kim Parson, David Hall, Dave Bergman, Tommy Vick and James Skinner.

Gates will open at 4:00 PM with a special race start time slated for 6:00 PM. Grandstand ticket prices are $15 while pit passes are just $30.
