Shootout brings more than 400 laps with main event tonight
The fifth annual – and largest to date – running of the Short Track Shootout at Madera Speedway will present racing fans with over 400 laps of competition with more than 100 race cars expected.
The crown jewel tonight is the 150 lap, $10,000-to-win feature for the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model Series with nearly 60 pre-entries. It also serves as the championship race for the series televised on MAVTV. MAVTV cameras will also roll for the Lucas Oil Modified Series 75 and the 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Models 75, which is also a championship finale.
The Pro Late Model B Main will be a feature in itself, paying $1,000 to the winner. A Lucas Oil Modified B Main, a Pro Late Model C Main, and the young drivers in the Mini Cups round out the busy evening of racing.
Pit gates open at 9 a.m. today with practice from 11:30 a.m -1:30 p.m. Qualifying will follow with C Mains and B Mains beginning at 4 p.m. The Mini Cup main will also be during this time. Opening ceremonies are officially at 5:30 p.m. with the 75-lap 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Model championship race, 75-lap Lucas Oil Modified race, and the 150-lap Short Track Shootout for $10K to win for the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model Series to follow.
Tickets for Madera’s biggest race of the year are value priced at just $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and military, $7 for youth ages 6-12, and kids 5 and under are enter free.
Madera Racing on MAVTV airs every Thursday night. Madera Speedway racing is also available on the LucasOilRacing.TV app.
