Lakeside Speedway Set For Tuesday’s Road To Knoxville Showdown
Bryan Hulbert – KANSAS CITY, Kan. (August 1, 2022) A nice tune-up for teams headed to Knoxville Raceway, the Marmon/Keystone Road to Knoxville featuring the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network and ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps takes place Tuesday, August 2 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.
A $3,000 to win, $400 to start mid-week showdown, last year’s event saw Sam Hafertepe, Jr. roll into Victory Lane for the first time at the four-tenths-mile oval to become the sixth different winner in just as many visits by the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series. Previous winners include Gary Wright (2007), Wayne Johnson (2008), Brian Brown (2016), Aaron Reutzel (2017), and Seth Bergman (2018).
Just off the 2022 Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek, the points have changed substantially going into the Tuesday night affair, with Wayne Johnson reclaiming the top spot from Blake Hahn, who trails by 19.
Claiming the Speedweek title, Tim Crawley has positioned himself only 27 points behind Johnson in third. Winning at 81 Speedway on Thursday, Matt Covington moved to fourth over Jason Martin, who sits fifth. The top five are only separated by 122 markers.
Tuesday, August 2, the Pits open at 4:00 P.M. with Grandstands opening at 6:00 P.M. Teams will check in between 5:45 P.M. and 6:15 P.M. with Hot Laps at 7:00 P.M. and Racing at 8:00 P.M. (CDT).
