WHEATLAND, MO (April 29th, 2014) - One of the most highly anticipated shows of the season is this Saturday, May 3rd at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri as Impact Signs, Awnings & Wraps out of Sedalia, Missouri presents the "3rd Annual Impact Signs, Awnings, & Wraps Open Wheel Showdown" featuring the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region Winged Sprint Cars, The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series, and the Impact Signs, Awnings & Wraps WAR Wingless Auto Racing Sprint Cars presented by Impact4800.com.
"This is going to be wild!" exclaimed Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson. "Where else in the country can you see ASCS Winged Sprint Cars, the POWRi National Midget Series, and Non-Wing Sprint Cars on the same night! We lost this event to a late spring snow last year but the weather man is calling for sunny skies and 77 degrees this year so it should be a fantastic day for open wheel racing."
Norman, Oklahoma's Christopher Bell, a Chili Bowl Preliminary Main Event Winner in 2014 sits atop the POWRi National points standings with 760 points followed by 17-year old Tanner Thorson from Reno, Nevada as he sits in the second spot with 600 points. Both Bell and Thorson spend time in the powerful Keith Kunz team entries with Toyota power.
