FAST on Dirt Historic West Virginia Weekend Ahead
The highest paying weekend in the history of the Ti22 Performance FAST on Dirt winged 410 sprint car tour is set to take place this weekend, August 6th and 7th at the ultra-fast West Virginia Motor Speedway. The event known as the Servpro - World Race of Champions will feature a $5,000 to win payday on Friday night with a $20,000 top prize on Saturday. Late models will join the action Friday night while sport modifieds will be part of the Saturday show.
After sitting idle for several years, area race promoter Cody Watson stepped up to bring the track back to life! The first two events played to capacity crowds in April and May. The FAST sprint cars, 23 strong, were featured in the May "Mountaineer Nationals" and Pennsylvania invader, Anthony Macri, scored the 25 lap main event victory after passing Vienna, West Virginia's Cale Conley for the lead.
Both drivers, along with much of that 23 car field, plans to return and will be joined by several new teams who have thrown their hat in the ring to battle for the $20,000 top prize! Can Conley score the win for the home state fans? Can Macri repeat? Can the fastest qualifiers turn the fastest laps in the world for dirt sprint cars in 2021 at 140+ mph average? Be there to find out!
