The Lighting Sprints next race is at Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, MO on Sept 23rd .  Make plans to come out and watch the USAC sanctioned Midwest Lightning Sprints squirt the dirt at Valley Speedway on the 23rd .

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 second 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.

Woods wins his first Lightning Sprint Feature !!

RMLSA results -- Sep. 9, 2017

7 winners so far in 2017

Jason Woods in the #50 GXSR Powered Henchcraft Chassis wins his first Lightning Sprint feature at El Paso County Speedway. The young dwarf car Champion found the winners circle in a 20 laps green to checkered race after taking the lead from heat race winner #23 Andrew Daniels on lap 4. A fast field of 21 cars took the green with all 21 cars finished a Lightning fast feature without any caution flags. #71 Frank Martinez finished a close 2nd, with points leader #2 Blaine Schubarth finishing 3rd. Rounding out the top 5 was the #71 of Dave McCray and the #23 Andrew Daniels with his season best finish in the 5th position. Heat races were won by multiple time RMLSA champion #1 Troy Ullery, #17 Dave McCray and #23 Andrew Daniels.




USAC Lightning Sprint National Championship Points Standings


Three groups added to their race count last weekend. The Midwest Lightning Sprints, California Lightning Sprints, and the Rocky Mountain Lightning Sprint Association. The MLS held a car count of 9, while the CLS and RMLSA earned a higher weighted points count in the next tier with 19 and 14 respectively.

Both Tom Brown and Ryan Secrest of the MLS have reached their 12 race count so their points are now locked as we move to the end of the season. Last week’s race(s) moved Tom Brown up one spot to the second place position as the MMSA had a non-points weekend. Rod Henning still leads with one more race left to better his total. Andy Bradley’s race count stands at 10 allowing two early season woes to be replaced by stronger finishes as the Lightning Sprint Nationals are just around the corner. Those attending may have an advantage by earning higher points if 41 or more cars are in attendance. A points scale yet to be awarded at any race this season.
The CLS and RMLSA are nearing their 10 race minimum. This is visible in the points climb by many of their competitors. The CLS now has three members inside the top 10. Those being Jarrett Kramer, Aiden Lange, and Bobby Michnowicz. Steve Becker joins fellow RMLSA member Johnny Boos inside the top ten. Both with 8 races to their credit. Total race counts by club stand at:

MLS         14 races
MMSA      11 races
CLS           9  races
RMLSA      8  races 

Cody Nigh and Kyle Lewis are the biggest movers this week, jumping two or more spots. The rundown of the top twenty positions are:

Rank        Driver                             Points

  1 Roderick Henning 2710
  2 Tom Brown 2380
  3 Andrew Bradley 2335
  4 Justin Lewis 2130
  5 Jarrett Kramer 2110
  6 Aiden Lange 2020
  7 Bobby Michnowicz 2020
  8 Ryan Secrest 1900
  9 Johnny Boos 1870
 10 Steve Becker 1570
 11 Cody Nigh 1540
 12 Frank Martinez 1500
 13 Brandon Smith 1490
 14 Troy Ullery 1210
 15 Kyle Lewis 1170
 16 Brent Sexton 1160
 17 Jon Robertson 1150
 18 Richard Marchbank 1135
 19 Jason Billups 1110
 20 Andy Flood 1000

The National rule book has been posted on the USAC website at:

Hoosier Tire is one of the many sponsors who have pledged support for this new series through a multi-year relationship.

Speedway Motors—America’s oldest speed shop—is the title sponsor with a myriad of other sponsoring companies, including AFCO, CSI, PRO Shocks, My Race Pass, Saldana Race Products, Aeromotive, Weld, Rod End Supply, Hoosier Speed, Outlaw Wings, Racing Optics, and EMi.

Here's the latest information from Mike Long regarding the upcoming USAC sanctioning

Thank you to all for the strong participation in the last three conference calls. We have accomplished our goals and created a foundation to move forward with. To recap where we are, the updated rules are attached. These will now be packaged as a National rule book and redistributed when completed.

I want to thank Levi Jones for spending time with us to answer questions and announce the $10K points fund for 2017. USAC specifics are:

1. Individual groups/clubs will maintain internal control of their series, including but not limited to all financials, tech, procedural calls (line ups) and scheduling

2. Racers will not be required to join USAC and will serve no penalty for not doing so

a. Only USAC registered drivers will be eligible for National Points in sanctioned event.

    i.  Registration will open Jan. 1, 2017

b. Points will be awarded for actual finishing position only.

    i. Points are weighted by total car count per race

c. The drivers membership with USAC would provide them with the extra participant accident insurance

      i. Membership fee is $150 annually

3. Groups / clubs, with registered drivers, will be required to schedule a minimum of 10 USAC sanctioned races per season

a. Groups are permitted to hold events outside of USAC sanction

b.Sanctioned races will be noted upon issue of season schedule

4. Tracks will communicate and deal with each series directly

a. Any participating track would need to supply the group a valid Certificate of Insurance (COI) for a 1 million dollar general liability policy covering the entire year. All scheduled tracks will have their insurance provider email this to Levi at USAC.  

5. Points fund breakdown (thank you all for your ideas – I merged them below)

1. $3000
2. $ 2000
3. $ 1500
4. $ 800
5. $ 700
6. $ 600
7. $ 500
8. $ 400
9. $ 300
10. $ 200

6. Top three finishing positions will be recognized at USAC Night of Champions banquet in Indianapolis during PRI show every December.

We still have a few more things to iron out. I will be in communication with Levi and look forward to seeing you all next Saturday morning at the Museum of American Speed at 9am.




Now as you can see to the left, there are quite a few of the organizations that have yet to develop a website (indicated with white background)...however several of them do have email address'. If you go to the bottom of each information page, you can find the names and address', and phone numbers for those organizations. If you have any update information, please pass on pertinent info. Thanks.
