 The POWRi Lighting Sprints next race is at Lake Ozark Speedway, Eldon, MO on Sat Aug 17th .  Make plans to come out and watch the POWRi Midwest Lightning Sprints squirt some dirt!! 

The racing in the MLS is fiercely competitive.  With motorcycle power and low-cost maintenance, this is still the most economical way to go fast in a race car.  These cars are 1 1/2 seconds a lap faster than an A Mod or a Late Model.  New drivers/cars will be coming out each week. There are good used cars for sale. Contact the MLS for info.

 The feature was a great race.  The first turn was 4 wide, with Tyler Miller and Jeff side by side coming off turn 2.  Jeff would lead lap one with Tyler Miller, Alex and Tyler Johnson battling for 2nd.  Bobby was starting to make his charge to the front.  Kyle and Kenny were also making their way forward. Bobby would take over 2nd from Tyler and Kyle would start to battle with Tyler.  Kyle would take over 3rd and Kenny would now start his battle with Tyler.  Alex was now starting to move forward.  Kenny would slow going into turn 1 with an overheated engine and pull to the infield.  The yellow would come out and now bunch the field back up.  With the green waving on the restart, Kyle would make a bold move to the inside from his 3rd starting spot and jump into the lead thru turn one but would spin out coming off turn two.  Yellow flag.  Kyle would have to go to the rear and Bobby would get another shot at Jeff.

It was a green white checker and Jeff would hold off Bobby and take his 1st win with the POWRi Midwest Lightning Sprints, Bobby 2nd, Alex would get by Tyler for 3rd, Tyler Miller 4th, Tyler Johnson 5th.   

 The POWRi Lighting Sprints next race is at Valley Speedway, Grain Valley, MO on Friday June 21st.  Make plans to come out and watch the POWRi Midwest Lightning Sprints squirt some dirt!! 

The racing in the MLS is fiercely competitive.  With motorcycle power and lowcost maintenance, this is still the most economical way to go fast in a race car.  These cars are 1 1/2 seconds a lap faster than an A Mod or a Late Model.  New drivers/cars will be coming out each week. There are good used cars for sale. Contact the MLS for info.

 The feature was a great race with lots of passing and speed.  Brad and Bobby brought the field down for the green.  Brad jumped into the lead with Jeff taking 2nd away from Bobby.  Stanley, Kyle and Kenny were bunched together fighting for 4th. Bobby would get back by Jeff and give chase to Brad. Stanley and Kenny would get by Kyle and continue the battle for 4th.  Jeff would spin bringing out the caution as the cars were re aligned.  Chris and Tyler Murry would get by Kyle.  Stanley would make a charge on the outside of Bobby but couldn’t make the pass stick.  Anthony would start to slow with a bad push and would retire to the infield and Ed had developed a miss.  Jeff was starting to head back to the front.  Ed would come to a stop on the track as Brad and Bobby were fighting for 1st, bringing out yellow number 2.  Kenny would try making an outside pass on Stanley on the restart, but Stan would hold off the challenge. More jockeying for position by the cars in the last half of the field.  Kyle would spin bringing out another yellow. Looks like a green white checker.  Bobby got the jump on the restart and would make a charge by Brad coming under him coming off of turn 2.  The chase was on but Bobby would hold him off.  Bobby would take the win, Brad 2nd and Stanley 3rd.

 The POWRi Lighting Sprints next race is at Valley Speedway, Grain Valley, MO on May 3rd with the POWRI War Sprints and the POWRi Midgets. Make plans to come out and watch the POWRi Midwest Lightning Sprints next week squirt some dirt!!

The feature was a great race, with the rookies starting to get a feel for the cars and the track.
Tyler and Kyle were side by side going down the back stretch on the first lap. Bobby made a great move by splitting the pair going into the 3rd turn and took the lead. Bobby would stretch the lead out while Kyle, Tyler and now Jeff would be battling for the runner up spot.
Alex was running 5th and was starting to lay down some good lap times. Stan and Kenny were battling for the 6th spot. As the race progressed Kyle had taken over 2nd and was now trying to reel in Bobby. Kenny would get by Stan and Tim was now battling with Stan. Alex pulled to the inside of the track off the pace. Kenny would take over the 5th spot and then was able to get by Tyler for the 4th spot. Stan would also get by Tyler. The yellow came out with 2 laps left as Tim had stopped on the track. On the restart, Kyle would try and make a pass on the outside of Bobby but couldn’t make it stick. With 1 to go, Kyle would go all out on the high side of the track and pass Bobby going thru turn 4. Kyle would be Bobby to the line. Kyle 1st, Bobby 2nd, Jeff 3rd, Kenny 4th and Stan 5th.
