BriggsAuto.com Speedway Ends Season With Two Consecutive Nights This Weekend

BriggsAuto.Com Speedway Ends Season With Two Consecutive Nights This Weekend!

 

September 26, 2012

 By: Larry Lowrey

Topeka, KS – It may have not been planned this way, but BriggsAuto.Com

Speedway is getting known for having the season end on a two day show.

It’s happened in the past and it’s going to happen again this season as

the Super Saturday Showdown Series will finish out the 2012 season with a

Double Header, Two Day Show Presented by 1 Source Real Estate, Inc. Fans

will be able to catch all the action twice this weekend at BriggsAuto.Com

Speedway with shows on Saturday, Sept. 29th and Sunday, Sept. 30th.

 

The Sunday show is a make-up race from a race that was stormed out earlier

in the season. It should give fans a double dose of racing fun to finish

off a great 2012 season!

 

Just when fans thought it couldn’t get any better, IT DOES! Sunday will be

a special day as the fans will get to see the 2012 champions crowned and

they will also get a choice to make when they are buying tickets to get

into the races.

 

On Sunday fans will be offered a 4 pack ticket deal! The deal consists of

4 tickets, 4 soft drinks, 4 hot dogs and 4 pop corns for $50!! It’s an

extravaganza of savings as Heartland Park wants to thank the fans for

another great season at BriggsAuto.Com Speedway.

 

April 7th doesn’t seem that long ago. The 2012 season was just kicking off

and Luke Driskell (Washburn Tech Modifieds), Jeff Miller (Super 8 at

Forbes Landing Factory Stocks), Mike Higley (White Line CDL Training B

Mods) and Darren Davenport (Casey’s General Store Pure Stock) all took

home wins on opening night.

 

Since that eventful night the season has been magnificent.

 

The Washburn Tech Modified division has produced more different winners in

2012 than ever before. Ten different drivers raced their way to victory

lane and only 4 of the 10 were able to win multiple features. Last year’s

champion, Darron Fuqua, will repeat as the champion again this season.

Fuqua, who has 5 wins on the season, used a formula of consistency mixed

in with just the right amount of wins to land him at the top of the heap.

Fuqua’s race to another championship didn’t go unchallenged. Kerry Davis,

Cody Agler and Josh Everhart were just a few of many drivers who emerged

on to the scene this season to add some spice to this exciting division.

 

In the Casey’s General Store Pure Stock division the season has belonged

to the 2012 champ, Randal Schiffelbein Jr. The last two races have

belonged to Tyler Garst. Garst has looked strong rolling to 2 consecutive

wins. The division continues to show it’s new found popularity this season

and with young drivers, like Garst & Schiffelbein, the future looks primed

for more growth.

 

Lucas Isaacs notched win #4 on the season in the White Line CDL Training B

Mods last Saturday night. One more win and he will tie Mike Higley for the

most wins on the season (5). Popularity has sprouted up all over at

BriggsAuto.Com Speedway and the B Mods have a big share of it. There have

been 11 different winners this season and more than 80 different drivers

having raced at HPT this season. Whatever the reason might be, this class

and these drivers will keep packing in more and more excitement than ever

before. In the next few years could we be looking at a new premier

division?

 

The driver that has the most wins in any division this season races in the

Super 8 at Forbes Landing Factory Stock class, Terry Schmidt. It’s amazing

that Schmidt has 12 wins and he will be the last of the 2012 track

champions to clinch his title. It could be that he has had some DNFs and

he missed 2 races this season. If Schmidt were to miss the final two

races, Steve Herrick could possibly pass him for the points title, but it

would take a lot of help. Herrick would almost have to win the last two

races to get that job done. Anything is possible when it comes to

championship night! Herrick won last week and he could put two more

together to end the season on. Then again Zach Henery could step up big

again this weekend, like he has done before. It’s also conceivable that we

just might pick up a new feature winner this weekend.

 

The times for the races on both nights will be the same. Spectator gates

will open up at 5 p.m., hot laps will be at 6:15 p.m. and the first heat

goes green at 7 p.m.

 

Adult tickets are $10, kids 12 and under are $5 and military with an id

will be free. Sunday patrons will have the chance at getting the 4 pack

ticket promotion. Four tickets to the races, 4 soft drinks, 4 hot dogs and

4 pop corns for $50! Tickets can be purchased online at Heartland Park

Topeka’s website, www.hpt.com.

 

Don’t forget to come out twice this weekend to BriggsAuto.Com Speedway and

help put an exclamation point on 2012!
