POWRi WEST RACERS & OKLAHOMA NATIVES SHINE IN TURNPIKE CHALLENGE HOMECOMIING
 
BELLEVILLE, ILL. (March 9, 2020) - With over half of their schedule (15 of 27 races) aligning with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League in co-sanctioned events, each and every showdown for the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League is crucial in not only the championship chase, but valued experience against the nation's best. Starting each year at home, the West racers come into the Turnpike Challenge with the slight advantage of racing on home turf, an edge that has proven invaluable on a handful of occasions.

 
Based out of Oklahoma, the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midgets have seen the likes of Christopher Bell, Tyler Thomas, Andrew Felker, Jason McDougal and countless others rise through the ranks and sour to national prominence since the league was founded almost a decade ago. Through 14 Turnpike Challenge events, 12 of the winners have hailed from the "Sooner State" with Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif. being the only outsider to strike for a win when he swept I-44 last year.

 
Bell, who hails from Norman, has been without a doubt the most dominant figure in event history, collecting nine wins in total with four triumphs at Port City, four more at I-44 and one at Creek County last year. When it wasn't Bell representing the Oklahoma City area in victory lane, the Tulsa contingent stepped up and delivered. Matt Sherrell of Owasso and Jason McDougal of Broken Arrow split Port City victories in 2016, then Jonathan Beason of Broken Arrow beat Bell at PCR last year in a finish that became an instant classic. For Sherrell, McDougal and Beason, who all grow up racing at these tracks, it was their first career National Midget wins.

 
At last year's Turnpike Challenge, a handful of Okies' rattled off career-best results to get the season rolling. At I-44, Hank Davis of Sand Springs scored his first-ever podium finish behind Logan Seavey and Christopher Bell, a pair of midget racing icons. The very next night, it was 14-year old Daison Pursley of Locust Grove earning a then career-best finish of seventh against the national stars. Wrapping up the week at Port City, Chris Andrews of Tulsa nearly landed on the podium with an impressive fourth-place charge.

 
Even Andrew Felker (Carl Junction, Mo.) grew up racing around Oklahoma and brings his own prior experience as a stepping stone to Turnpike Challenge success. The defending POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League champion, Felker has scored four top-five finishes in TPC action and been a contender for the win in several features.

 
Leading into this year's Turnpike Challenge, the local faces chasing national success will look the same, while surely an underdog will shock several and rise to the occasion. Among the many POWRi West competitors to watch include last year's top ten points finishers. From Felker at the top to Hank Davis and Noah Gass, who tasted their own share of national success last year, to Trey Marcham, Chance Morton, Kade Morton, Blake Edwards, Luke Howard, and the countless others expected to sign-in.

 
Invading Oklahoma to for four nights of epic action, the seventh annual Turnpike Challenge will mark the season opener for the POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midgets and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micros. It all begins with a practice night (6-9pm) on Wednesday, March 25 at Creek County Speedway, followed by racing on Thursday, March 26. The series moves to I-44 Riverside Speedway for two appearances on Friday & Saturday, March 27-28, and then concludes on Sunday, March 29 at Port City Raceway.

 
Fans can catch every single lap of the 2020 Turnpike Challenge featuring the POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midgets and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micros on a LIVE pay-per-view broadcast each night on POWRi TV.

Turnpike Challenge to Open 2020 with Electrifying Oklahoma Swing

BELLEVILLE, ILL. (March 4, 2020) - Quickly morphing into a marquee event on the POWRi calendar, the Turnpike Challenge has experienced a meteoric rise to national prominence since debuting in 2014. A thrilling four-race swing throughout the "Sooner State," the 2020 TPC is only three weeks away from kick starting a new campaign for the POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midgets and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micro League. From Creek County to I-44 to Port City, teams will be tested across four nights at three unique venues as they travel up and down the Oklahoma turnpike.


 
It all begins on Wednesday, March 25 with a three-hour practice session at Creek County Speedway. The next night, on Thursday, March 26, the season opener goes green at the Sapulpa, Okla. quarter mile with a full program for the POWRi National / West Midgets and the POWRi Outlaw Micros. With only one previous event in league history at Creek County, NASCAR Cup Series star Christopher Bell enters as the defending midget winner and Trey Robb of Newcastle, Okla. 

 
On Friday and Saturday, March 27-28, the series slides to the 405 for back-to-back showings at the I-44 Riverside Speedway in Oklahoma City. A host of six former Turnpike Challenge shows, the semi-banked 1/6th-mile has been on the TPC calendar since 2017. Home to four of Christopher Bell's wins, last year's return witnessed a pair of victories by California's Logan Seavey, who broke the five-year reign by Oklahoma drivers. The 2019 event marked the debut of the POWRi Outlaw Micros at I-44 and saw trips to victory lane for Brady Bacon and Kaylee Bryson.

 
Everything comes to a head on Sunday, March 29 when the Turnpike Challenge concludes at Port City Raceway. The most visited track in TPC history, PCR has held seven races with four wins to Christopher Bell along with triumphs by Jason McDougal, Matt Sherrell, and Jonathan Beason in last year's instant classic. A tight bullring 1/8th-mile, the Tulsa, Okla. facility has been known for producing some of the most intense, wheel-to-wheel combat you'll see all season long.

 
With four races on the docket and over 1,000 points on the line, the Turnpike Challenge serves as a prime opportunity for competitors to begin their championship chase. From the always tough veterans to the rising rookies, this year's field of title hopefuls is expected to be as stout as ever. Like last year, this year's POWRi National Midget champion will punch his ticket to the VIROC Race of Champions at the Chili Bowl Nationals in January 2021.

 
Fans can catch every single lap of the 2020 Turnpike Challenge featuring the POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midgets and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micros on a LIVE pay-per-view broadcast each night on POWRi TV.

  Must See Racing Postpones Start Of 2020 Season

HOLLY, Mich. - Officials from the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series confirmed Saturday that the start of the season for the traveling 410ci asphalt sprint car tour is on hold due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The declaration also applies to the Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series, the new feeder division under the Must See Racing banner set to begin this summer.

Originally scheduled to kick off April 17-18 at Montgomery Motor Speedway in Alabama, there is now no specific timetable for when the Must See Racing calendar will officially begin, as sports around the world have come to a halt in the wake of the COVID-19 fight.

Must See Racing President Jim Hanks issued a statement Saturday morning addressing the disappointing news.

"The ongoing sudden, abrupt and ever-changing facts, including local, state and national governmental mandates surrounding the coronavirus, currently makes it impossible to accurately predict when MSR can reliably begin, and in all probability, be required to reschedule the 2020 racing season," said Hanks.

"Be assured the safety, health and well-being of everyone remains the number one consideration and paramount concern of everyone at Must See Racing," Hanks continued. "We will keep everyone updated with MSR schedule update bulletins as we look forward to reconstructing the 2020 schedule with the multiple track and event options available to deliver first class racing and entertainment at the tracks, in the multimedia space and on television for our valued race fans."
