rebelracewriter Posted October 4, 2016 Report Share Posted October 4, 2016 Belleville, IL - Friday, September 30th and Saturday, October 1st, the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series and POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series will take to Belle-Clair Speedway for the final time of 2016. Saturday's event is held in honor of former Midwest Auto Racing Association President, Charlene Meents. During her years with MARA, Meents was instrumental in keeping midget racing alive in the Midwest, especially the St. Louis area. She played an important role in maintaining MARA's presence in some of the country's largest and most notable races, including the Belleville Nationals and the Chili Bowl Nationals. Though she passed away in 2003, Meents is remembered by many as a friendly face who welcomed them to each MARA event. Along with her friends and family, the Charlene Meents Memorial keeps her racing legacy alive. Presented by Priority Aviation, the 12th Annual Charlene Meents Memorial features nearly $3,500 in extra sponsor money and contingencies, adding over $1,000 in payout to the back end of the feature purse, helping to make the feature $250 to start. Each heat race will also pay $50 to win, with $25 going to each of the second and third place heat race finishes. In addition, there will be $100 to the high point getter of the night, a $100 hard charger for the main event, and at least $25 paid to lap leaders of the feature. As an added bonus, semi non-transfers also will receive extra money and Hinchman Indy has sponsored a gift certificate for the driver with the worst luck. Gift certificates have also been provided by Simpson Race Products and Rod End Supply to be handed out to random positions throughout the evening. A special thanks goes out to Richard and Jennifer Marshall of Priority Aviation for coming on board as the presenting sponsors of the Charlene Meents Memorial, and a big thank you goes to sponsors of all segments.Thank you to the following: Heat Races Winners:Heat Race #1Brayton Lynch RacingHeat Race #2Spike ChassisHeat Race #3Carli Anderson Agency/Farmers InsuranceHeat Race #4Carli Anderson Agency/Farmers InsuranceHeat Race #5In Memory of Charlene MeentsHeat Race 2nd & 3rd place - Brian Thompson RoofingSemi:Carli Anderson Agency/Farmers InsuranceFrank Daigh - In Memory of Bryan Clauson and Charlene MeentsT-shirt Sponsors - Hoosier Tire Midwest, Siner Transport, Frank Daigh, Roof Bolt XpressGift certificate contingencies - Simpson Race Products, Hinchman Indy, Rod End SupplyA-Main Hard Charger - Boss ChassisHard Luck Award - Hinchman IndyHigh Passing Points - Four in the Fluff Motorsports Marketing & PromotionsA-main Lap Sponsors:Lap 1In Memory of Chad McDanielLap 2Picture Sandy (www.picturesandy.com)Lap 3Dave Booker & Sons TruckingLap 44 In the Fluff Motorsports Marketing & PromotionsLap 5Daum MotorsportsLap 64 Left TurnsLap 7Shannon McQueen RacingLap 8In Memory of Charlene Meents - Roger Branson Jr.Lap 9Kyle Jones RacingLap 10Daum MotorsportsLap 11Carli Anderson Agency/Farmers InsuranceLap 12Chigger Patch RacingLap 13Stella FernandezLap 14JET MotorsportsLap 15J.J. and Lisa ErcseLap 16Bill Willis - In Memory of Rich CamfieldLap 17Bill Willis - In Memory of Bryan ClausonLap 18Jerry and Kelly MyersLap 19Spike ChassisLap 20In Memory of Charlene Meents - Julie NovoselLap 21In Memory of Michael TemaresLap 22Daum Crop InsuranceLap 23In Memory of Gail Rose by Rick RoseLap 24Picture Sandy (www.picturesandy.com)Lap 25Daum Crop InsuranceLap 26Dave Booker & Sons TruckingLap 27Butch MaysLap 28The Roger Branson, Sr. FamilyLap 29Brayton Lynch RacingLap 30In Memory of MortyFor further information, visit www.powri.com, "Like" POWRi on Facebook and follow Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
