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.

May brings the Lucas Oil ASCS National Sprint Car series to Lakeside Speedway on Thursday night, May 8.  Also, in May the Midwest Outlaw Lightning Sprints invade I-35 for three straight weeks of weekly racing with the topless sprint cars returning for the last weekend of the month.

June is highlighted with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars competing on June 7, 2014 at Lakeside Speedway. “Racin For Rian”, a benefit from the I-35 racers to Children’s Mercy Hospital returns for the third year.  Friday, June 20 one of the top local bands in the Kansas City area, “County Road 5”, will be putting on a concert after the races.

July opens with fireworks!  Fireworks displays will shoot into the air at Lakeside Speedway on July 4 and I-35 Speedway on July 5.  July 15 at Lakeside Speedway marks the return of the Lucas Oil Late Models and the USMTS Modifieds.  This event, first held in 2013, filled the grandstands as local fans had the opportunity to see the best of the best in late models and modifieds.  I-35 Speedway will hold the annual Kaster Celebration on July 26, in honor of the man (Larry Kaster) and family who made I-35 Speedway the popular track it is today.  Lakeside Speedway brings in “Outlaw Jim and the Whiskey Benders” another top local band for a concert following the July 25 races.

August is a month full of events for local race fans.  Lakeside Speedway opens August with Old Timers Night.  Kids Night, when young race fans receive back to school items for attending the races, will be held on August 2 at I-35 Speedway and August 8 at Lakeside Speedway.  Central Auto Racing Boosters Night at the races are scheduled for August 9 at I-35 Speedway and August 29 at Lakeside Speedway.  USMTS makes their third visit to Lakeside on August 22, 2014.

September brings a new event to Lakeside Speedway, the Wild West Motorcycle Shootout.  The annual Tom Karrick Memorial race will be held on September 12 at Lakeside, with both tracks closing out the weekly racing season with Champions Night on September 26-27.

October brings national events to both tracks.  October 1 through 4, 2014 the United States Racing Association will hold the USRA Nationals at Lakeside Speedway.  This four day event should draw those racers competing in national points to the track to compete for King or Queen of their respective USRA division.

I-35 Speedway closes out their season with the two day “OPEN WHEEL NATIONALS” featuring Midwest Lightning Sprints, Mod Lites, and Non-Wing Sprints on October 10 and 11, 2014.
