Things are shaping up for the inaugural Lightning Sprint National Open over Labor Day Weekend. Eagle Raceway has adopted the Lightning Sprint Division as part of the IMCA Sprint Car RaceSaver Nationals. A full weekend of open wheel racing on America’s fasted 1/3 mile race track. Many organizations have scheduled to be part of this ground breaking event bringing competitors from many states and multiple countries. Current event contributors include Speedway Motors, Hoosier Tire, Rod End Supply, and EMi. Resources have been focused on this one event to ensure competitors are rewarded generously for their participation.

Nice Promotional video put together at our first race in 2013 that explains the motivations of putting Mid-America Lightning Sprints together. We combined our efforts with Midwest Lightning Sprints in 2015 in hopes of bringing Lightning Sprints back to its place in the racing community. We have decided this is not what is best for lightning sprints in Mid-America.
Stay tuned for news concerning Mid-America Lightning sprints in the coming weeks.
