NRA Sprint Invaders & SOD Sprints On Dirt Make Final 2015 Montpelier Appearance Saturday, August 1st
The K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders and Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt will make their final 2015 appearance at the Montpelier Motor Speedway Saturday, August 1st as the points chase begins to wind down for both organizations. The event will feature a true epic battle drawing Ohio’s and Michigan’s finest winged sprint car drivers to the Indiana 1/4 mile bullring as the Ohio based K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders will compete against the Michigan based Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt bringing two separate sanctioning bodies to one single race. The event will mark the second event that NRA and SOD have co-sanctioned an event at the Montpelier Motor Speedway
The June 6th NRA/SOD Event saw 23 cars take the green flag in A Main action with Jared Horstman picking up his first MMS win over SOD heavy hitter Dustin Daggett, Max Stambaugh, Hud Horton, and Randy Hannagan rounded out the top 5. California's Hannagan also picked up the hard charger award advancing 8 positions in the 25 lap feature. Stambaugh will enter the weekend as the NRA points leader while Gregg Dalman will enter as the SOD points leader. Hannagan has won the previous three NRA events while Ryan Ruhl has also pulled near the same feat in SOD action winning the last two.
Also, joining the program will be the popular UMP Modifieds, Super Streets, and Thunder Cars. The UMP Modifieds have posted five different winners with Todd Sherman, Tony Anderson, Ryan Ramseyer, Aaron Orr, and Randy Lines all picking up wins. Tony Anderson is currently the points leader in both the UMP Modifieds and Super Streets while Ervin Turner is currently leading the Thunder Car Division.
The Montpelier Motor Speedway, which began racing in 1903 and hosted its first automobile race in 1915, is one of America’s oldest remaining racing facilities. Sprint car racing first came to Montpelier in the late 1940’s in the form of “Big Cars”. While the east central Indiana ¼ mile clay oval has a historic past, the facility has seen many major modern upgrades the past four seasons including new restrooms and bleachers along with the addition of many safety features such as a new catch fence system along with a new front stretch wall, lighting system, and runoff area. The Montpelier Motor Speedway commonly competes weekly on Saturday Nights with its popular Modified and Stock Car divisions, and is also the host to the popular Montpelier Motor Speedway Midget series.
