Fans Get $1.00 Root Beer Floats This Weekend At HPT


Topeka, KS – The ‘dog days’ of summer are just around the corner. Hot
temps, long days and muggy nights are common during summers in Kansas.
Heartland Park Topeka has found 1 great way to battle this epidemic, $1.00

This Saturday night, June 29th, 2013, at 7 p.m., the cars will roar back
to life for another Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown presented
by Casey’s General Store.

Fans will not only be treated to the root beer float special, thanks to
Casey’s General Store, one lucky fan and the winner of the feature in the
Casey’s General Store Pure Stock Class will split $250.00 in gas cards!
Some would call that a double treat.

Just as it is with every Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown, fans
will have the chance to enjoy all the amenities that HPT has to offer
along with the best racing action in the Midwest.

Last week it was a grueling night for the drivers in the White Line CDL
Training B Mods, Ferrellgas Stock Cars and Washburn Tech Modifieds, as
they battled it out for 2 features instead of their normal night agenda.

In the Modified division Jay Bailey was the 1st driver to dethrone Darron
Fuqua in 5 races by taking home the win in the makeup feature. Fuqua was
able to crack the top 10, but an early race crash put his car in a tough
spot that would lead to his streak coming to an end at 5. In the 2nd
feature Fuqua stormed on the field once again winning the main event. As 1
streak came to a close Fuqua began another one with his 6th win of the

The Stock Car makeup feature saw Steve Herrick repeat as a winner once
again. Herrick worked his way to the front on a late race move and never
looked back while taking the checkers. In the evening stanza Zach Henery
ran down the early leader, Terry Schmidt, and drove by for the win. It was
Henery’s 2nd win of the season thus far.

Dustin Thulin got a great restart on a green, white, checkered finish that
propelled him to his 2nd win of the season in the first feature of the
night. In the 2nd feature last year’s track champ, Ethan Isaacs, would get
his 2nd win of the season as he ran away from the competition.

The one class that did not have double features last week was the Casey’s
General Store Pure Stocks. It was a great race from start to finish.
Several cars were in contention for the win but in the end it was Tyler
Hinrichs scoring his 1st win of the season. As the class continues to grow
the competition is getting stronger every week. So far this season the
Pure Stocks have had a total of 6 different winners in victory lane. This
is the most of any class.

Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m., hot laps will start at 6:15 p.m.
and the first race will go green at 7:00 p.m.
