Topeka, KS – Saturday night, August 31st, fans will be in for a big treat at the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown at Heartland Park Topeka. It’s Summertime Fun this Saturday night. Fans will want to be a part of this great event. 

Starting a 7 p.m. the racing action will get underway, but it’s the specials that will be complimenting the racing action and providing even more fun than ever before.

Fans in attendance this Saturday night will not only be enjoying a 3 day weekend. They will also be having a great time with a $1.00 margarita special, $3.00 apple slices with caramel and the National Wild Turkey Federation will be back on hand, yet again, to raffle off another great firearm.

That’s not enough.

Ok! How about a chance for one lucky fan to go home with a Casey’s General Stores Pure Stock car at the end of the night? Now we are getting some where!

Former HPT racer, Darrell Cremer, has been battling since having a leg amputated. To help raise money a group of supporters have been selling raffle tickets so Darrell could get a new prosthetic leg. Tickets will be sold ($10.00 ea) up until intermission and then at intermission one lucky winner will be drawn out of the hopper! It will be a race fans dream come Saturday night at HPT.

As all of that is going on don’t forget about the Washburn Tech Modifieds, Ferrellgas Stock Cars, White Line CDL Training B Mods and Casey’s General Store Pure Stocks which will provide the fans another reason of why dirt track racing is the greatest sport in America!

It’s a 3 horse battle in the Washburn Tech Modifieds coming down to the championship!

Steven Bowers Jr. won his 3rd feature of the season 2 weeks ago. It was also his 2 straight win in a row and he has won the 2 out 3 out of the last 4 races. Bowers has picked a great time in the season to get hot. Bowers’ teammate, Kerry Davis, wheeled his back-up car to a 3rd place finish, while Darron Fuqua, the current points leader, finished in 3rd. What does it all mean?

With just 5 races to go Fuqua now leads Davis by just 13 points for the championship. Bowers, meanwhile, is only 23 markers out and in striking distance. $2,000 and bragging rights are on the line and it’s going to be a great run to the finish. This is one of the few times that more than 2 drivers have a legitimate shot at the title.

Steve Herrick has opened up his points lead in the Ferrellgas Stock Car division. Herrick rolled to another win 2 weeks ago and in doing so he extended, what was, a 20 point lead over Zach Henery into a 33 point lead in just a couple of weeks worth of racing. Herrick is looking for his 1st championship and if he continues on his current course, a championship might be in his future.

Currently, in the White Line CDL Training B Mods, it’s Jeremy Chambers who has been standing head and shoulders above the competition with two straight wins, but it’s Jake Richards that is in control of his own destiny for the 2013 crown. Richards has a huge 91 point lead with 5 races to go.

The B Mod division still continues to turn heads. Several competitors in this class are capable of getting a win and the racing action on the track proves it. Richards may have a big points lead, but watch for several drivers to stand out in the last few races of the season.

Another driver that is in total control right now is Byron Glotzbach. The Casey’s General Store Pure Stock points leader has a big lead too. Sixty three points separate Glotzbach and AJ Christian at this point in the season. If Christian is going to make a run, he has to get it going this weekend.

The Pure Stocks have been a fun class all season long. A new star is beginning to emerge as Robert Garst has won the last 2 features and has 3 wins on the season. If it weren’t for him coming out late to start the season, he could have been in the hunt for a championship.

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.

Adult tickets are $12.00, kids 4 through 12 are $6.00 and children 3 and under are free at BriggsAuto.Com Speedway. Military personnel and veterans will be given free admission with proper identification. Discounted tickets can be purchased online at Heartland Park Topeka’s home on the world wide web, www.hpt.com.
