Micro Sprint racers will descend upon Millbridge Speedway (NC) this fall for the TRD Micro Showdown, headlined by a $5,000-to-win feature for the Winged Outlaw Micro Sprints. The big race will also feature a national spotlight, as it will be aired on Speed51’s Short Track America on MAVTV.
The TRD Micro Showdown, scheduled for November 5-6, 2019 in the days leading up to the World of Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, will be featured in an episode of the short track racing television series. Both the $5,000-to-win Winged feature and $2,000-to-win Non-Winged feature will be shown on the tape-delayed broadcast.
This will be the second major event from the Salisbury, North Carolina 1/6-mile oval to air on the program, as the Speed51 Open for Outlaw Kart racers was also featured earlier this year on Short Track America.
“We are thrilled to showcase Millbridge Speedway again for a nationwide audience on MAVTV,” said Millbridge Speedway co-owner Ashly Burnett. “This is going to be an incredible event with the Micro Sprint cars, something unique and exciting for us at Millbridge.”
Air dates and other information regarding the MAVTV broadcast will be announced at a later date.
Full details on race procedure and format will be announced at a later date. Rules for Micro Sprint divisions will mirror those for the Tulsa Shootout each year at the River Spirit Expo Center (OK), with the exception of an open tire rule in place for the TRD Micro Showdown.
Millbridge’s Outlaw Kart divisions will also compete at the TRD Micro Showdown. Beginner Box Stocks and Box Stocks will compete on Tuesday, while the Intermediate and Open Divisions will race on Wednesday.
There will be an open practice session available for Micro Sprint teams on Monday, November 4, from 7-9:30 p.m. that evening.
Stay tuned for more details about this exciting new event on the Millbridge Speedway calendar.
