Five years ago, track management at Lakeside Speedway, located in Kansas City Kansas, and I-35 Speedway, located in Winston, Missouri, agreed to a Border War for the Grand National and Stock Car classes.  That Border War was finish in the Top 3 in a feature event at one track then compete and finish in the Top 3 at the other track the next race night and earn bonus money.  This was the beginning of tracks working together to promote each other and benefit the racer in the process.  The Border War was suspended during the 2013 racing season as each track operated with different sanctioning rules.
 
Since I-35 Speedway and Lakeside Speedway will be operating under the same sanction, USRA, and the same rules, the Border War returns with a slightly different format and the addition of two more classes.  The USRA Modifieds and the USRA B-Mods will be included in the Border War, along with the Grand Nationals and the USRA Stock Cars.
 
The Border War pay format is also changing.  The new format pays an additional $75 to the highest finishing competitor, $50 to the second highest finishing competitor, and $25 to the third highest finishing competitor who raced the previous race at the sister track.  The Border War bonus is in addition to the to the driver’s regular purse and will be paid each night.
 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our drivers, pit crews, media, and race fans! For more information about Lakeside Speedway visit our official website at www.lakesidespeedway.net or for I-35 Speedway visit www.i-35speedway.net.
