Then on Tuesday night, August 12, it's on to Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway for the track's annual Huskerland Non-Wing Nationals in Greenwood.
A pair of Sooner state ovals are next on the docket, with Oklahoma City's State Fair Speedway hosting the wingless warriors on Wednesday night, August 13. Then on Thursday night, some authentic bullring Sprint Bandits TNT action is in store with the series taking to Creek County Speedway near Tulsa.
After four nights of $4,000-to-win feature events, the wild week of racing wraps up with two nights of action at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS, on August 15-16, with the prestigious Saturday night finale offering up a $10,000 winner's share.
