Fernley 95A Speedway will host the Sprint Car Challenge Tour for its only visit of the year this Saturday, May 12.
Gates open at 2 p.m. and racing begins at 6 p.m.
Last year the Sprint Car Challenge Tour made its debut at the Fernley 95A Speedway and raced in front of the largest crowd ever for a motorsports event at the track.
Minden’s Sprint Car champion Tanner Thorson will be wheeling the #3C car while Adam Walters comes back after a five-year absence and will be racing #34. Should be a great event to come out and root for our local drivers.
This Saturday’s event marks the fourth round of the season in the battle for the $10,000-to-win Sprint Car Challenge Tour championship. The top-15 drivers/teams at seasons end will take part in the hefty $60,000 total fund. Going into Fernley just six-points separate the top-four drivers in the standings, making the next two weeks a critical stretch. Following Fernley, the tour then heads south to Thunderbowl Raceway for night one of the Peter Murphy Classic on Friday May 18.
Adult tickets cost $15 in lower bleachers and $20 in the upper bleacher area, while sky box seating is $30. Tickets can be purchased online at https://fernley95aspeedway.com/…/2018-sprint-car-challenge…/
