FIREWORKS AFTER THE RACES THIS WEEKEND | JULY 16
ODESSA, MO. (July 13, 2023) — The Inaugural Firecracker 40’s original event date of July 1 was postponed due to severe weather forecasts, but I-70, MLRA, and SMVR Officials were able to agree on a suitable make-up date that falls this weekend on Sunday, July 16. The Firecracker 40 will feature Lucas Oil MLRA Late Models plus Show Me Vintage Racing Cars. The finale of the evening will be an outstanding Fireworks Show Presented by J&M Displays.
The Lucas Oil MLRA Late Models will be competing at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri for the 17th Annual Diamond Nationals on Saturday, July 15 before traveling north to I-70 Speedway for the Firecracker 40 Sunday, July 16.
“I grew up racing on ½ mile dirt tracks, and I’m pumped to race at I-70 this weekend,” said MLRA Competitor, Chris Simpson. “I love the speed ½ miles produce. I-70’s Firecracker 40 will be a great event with lots of excitement for fans.”
The FinishLine Graphics Co-Pilot Program will be open for sign-ups prior to Heat Races. Children 12 and under are invited to participate in this FREE program by checking in at the table outside the I-70 Merchandise Store from 6:00-6:30 PM.
