There’s lots of hot racing action across the country this weekend. Here is a look at Speed51.com’s 10 to Attend Nationwide.
1. The Oxford 250 is the number one race to attend this weekend. With its unique style and 70 cars on the entry list, how can you go wrong? The Oxford 250 weekend kicks off with Super Late Model practice and weekly racing Friday night, followed by more Super Late Model practice and the Valenti Modified Racing Series highlighting the night of racing om Saturday. Sunday will be an exciting day from Oxford Plains as drivers must race their way into the prestigious 250-lap race with heat race starting line-ups decided by draw. Drivers then have 250-lap to determine who will take home the coveted 42nd annual AIM Oxford 250 trophy. If you can’t make it to Oxford Plains Speedway this weekend, you can watch all the action LIVE on Speed51.com’s PPV broadcast.
2. The CARS Racing tour has a “home game” this weekend as the series heads to Concord Speedway in North Carolina on Saturday night for the first time. With the triangle-shaped half-mile that is Concord Speedway proving to be one of the trickiest tracks, it will make for great racing action from the Super Late Models and Late Model Stock Cars.
3. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour makes a stop at Riverhead Raceway Saturday night for the Riverhead 200. Woody Pitkat and Ryan Preece enter the event separated by just two points in the standings with four races to go.
4. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series heads to Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway Friday and Saturday night for the Pittsburgher 100 and a $20,000 pay day.
5. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East makes their final round course stop of the season Saturday at VIRginia International Raceway. Scott Heckert looks to win his fourth consecutive K&N East road course race and his second straight at VIR.
6. South Boston Speedway hosts the longest race of the year for its Late Model Stock Cars with a 200-lapper. The race also serves as the second leg of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown, where the winner takes home $10,000. Lee Pulliam won the first race at Langley Speedway, the Hampton Heat, earlier this year.
7. The Lucas Oil Modified Series return to Orange Show Speedway in California for the first time in five years this Saturday for the LoanMart Super Fast 100 presented by K&N Filters. This is the seventh of ten races for the Series.
8. Madison International Speedway serves up twin features for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Models this Friday night. Zach Riddle owns a 28 point lead over Dale Nottestad in the point standings, so a double feature night could prove important with just three features remaining.
9. The Tri-Track Super Late Model Series makes its final appearance of the year at Spokane County Raceway in Washington. With 90-laps of Super Late Model racing and 32 drivers on the entry list the seventh of nine races for the TTSLMS should stack up quite nicely.
10. It’s a Pro Late Model double header at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida this Friday night. It’s a great tune-up for September’s Allen Turner Tune-Up event, which will set the stage for the Snowflake 100 on Snowball Derby weekend in December.
