The SLMR Series will be busy the next few weekends as drivers compete in “the Race for the Safe” sponsored by Malvernbank.com. This weekend the series heads north to Raceway Park in Jefferson, Sout Dakota to tackle the bullring on Friday, August 29.
Then on Saturday, August 30, its off to the Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska. If you still want more Super Late Model racing this weekend I-80 Speedway will be paying $1,000 to win on All Star Sunday, August 31. (That race is not an SLMR Race).
Agri-Vision has posted a $1,000 bounty on Kyle Berck for SLMR events. Any driver winning the feature will get an extra $1,000 (Berck must finish the race). The bounty will carryover from race to race until collected. The bounty will start at Raceway Park, then carryover to the Junction Motor Speedway and then on to Adams County and so forth until the bounty is collected.
The following weekend, the series will once again try to get in the twice rained out SLMR event at the Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa , this time on Saturday, September 6. That event will pay $2,000 to win, $1,500 for second, $850 for third etc. (courtesty of Malvern Trust & Savings Bank). There's also the Ray Houck Memorial Dash taking eight cars and paying $1,000 to win and $100 to start.
Then its off the one-third mile high banks of Eagle Raceway on Sunday, September 7, for the Nebraska Cup.
On Saturday, September 13 the series heads back north to the newly re-opened Park Jefferson Speedway with the racing paying $1,800 to win, $1,300 for second, $900 for third, etc., with $250 to start. Then on Saturday, September 20, the SLMR is at the Midwest Fall Brawl III at I-80 Speedway paying $1,500 to win.
After a week off, the series makes its first ever appearance at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas on October 3 & 4 (during NASCAR weekend at Kansas Speedway) with each night paying $2,000 to win $1,500 to second, $1,000 for third on down to $250 to start.
The season wraps up back at I-80 Speedway on Saturday, October 11 at the Cornhusker Classic paying $1,500 to win. So there's a lot more racing to be had before the end of the season and a lot more money up for grabs.
Currently Kyle Berck continues to be the series points leader. The top five in the Malvern.com “Race for the Safe” are: Berck 746, Tad Pospisil 712, Corey Zeitner 700, Justin Gregg 690 and Bill Leighton, Jr. 670. To follow the SLMR “Race for the Safe” Series, visit www.slmrseries.com.
