Phillips County Raceway’s event of the season is slated for Sunday, May 28, with an evening packed full of races, ranging from micro sprint cars to trucks. Gates will open at 3 p.m., with hot laps beginning at 4 p.m. and the green flag set to be waved at 5 p.m.
The 26th American Sprint Car Series is already in the midst of the Lucas Oil national tour, having made stops at dirt tracks in Texas, Missouri and Kansas already. Only two appearances are scheduled for Colorado, and they will be at El Paso County Raceway in Calhan Saturday, May 27, and in Holyoke May 28, before the tour continues around the country.
Absent from Colorado for the past 18 years, this will be the first time ever for the Lucas Oil national tour to come to Phillips County, and Raceway promoter Joe Bellm expects the May 28 event to be sold out. He suggests securing tickets in advance to guarantee entry to PCR’s biggest night of races this year.
Sammy Swindell will be driving a 360 winged sprint car in the Holyoke lineup, competing against several other strong contenders, including Sam Hafertepe Jr, Johnny Herrera and Wayne Johnson, who have been dominating the tour so far.
