Jackson Speedway and Redwood Speedway add Sprint Cars to the Southwest MN Alliance of Race Tracks (SMART).
The two tracks where already scheduled to face off in SMART Rivalry Races on Saturday June 4th (Redwood at Jackson) and Sunday July 3rd (Jackson at Redwood).
The 360 Sprints will be added to these two dates and since at this time there are only Two Sprint Car Tracks in the alliance we will add these dates: Sunday May 29th Jackson at Redwood, and Saturday June 18th at Jackson.
Things will work a lot like they are for the other SMART divisions, starting with the rules will be the same at both tracks.
Secondly all of the drivers will be assigned to one track or the other. This is key, as if you are signed up on one of the tracks rosters you will be eligible for 2 Free Pit Passes at the road games and also will be eligible for bonus money if your team wins.
Each Sprint Car Race will pay $500 in bonus money and this will go to the top five finishers on the winning team.
At this time we will not have playoffs or keep track of points for the 360 Sprints with-in the SMART. However, we may look at ways that we could schedule some fun nights of competition against each other later in the season.
At this time these Rivalry Races are separate from the JSTS.
We do have a JSTS race Scheduled at Redwood Speedway on July 7th, as well as these confirmed dates: Friday May 13, Park Jefferson Speedway, Wednesday July 13th at Sioux Speedway, in Sioux Center, IA.
We are trying to add about another 2 or so JSTS dates as well.
Look for a new tire deal to be inked with Hoisser for Jackson and Redwood Speedway within the next week also. This new deal will involve the same tires we have been running, but will pay out a 1 tire bonus if we have 10 cars and 2 tires if we have 15 cars. We will likely do some sort of a draw system on who wins the tires each night.
