For the last several years Lakeside Speedway and I-35 Speedway have operated as sister tracks, introducing the Border War and working with each other in scheduling and marketing. In 2014 they enter the season with the same rules for their weekly classes. Open wheel fans will be pleased to see the number of open wheel shows at I-35 Speedway with the Midwest Outlaw Lightning Sprints and non-wing Sprint Car shows. Vintage cars will compete at both tracks throughout the year. Motorcycles will make an appearance at Lakeside.
Today both tracks introduce their exciting fast paced 2014 schedules, ending with national events at both tracks. Let’s take a look at the upcoming season.
Lakeside Speedway opens the 2014 racing season on Friday, March 28, 2014. I-35 Speedway opens the next night, Saturday, March 29, 2014. With both tracks flying under the USRA sanction this provides a great opportunity for a racer to compete for national points.
April brings something new to I-35 Speedway, the non-wing sprint cars will be competing on April 12. This will be the first of several open wheel shows at the racing facility. The USMTS modifieds bring their travelling show to Lakeside Speedway on April 11 and April 26 to I-35 Speedway, giving area competitors the chance to compete against the top modified series.
