COMP Cams Interstate
Cup Sprint Car Series Opens at I-30 this
Memphis, Tennessee (04/02/15) – Hopefully the third time will be the charm, and I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) will finally get to host the opener for the 2015 edition of the COMP Cams Interstate Cup presented by Dixon Road U-Pull-It this Saturday, April 4th.
After seeing the opening rounds claimed by rain on March 14th and March 28th, fans and racers are eagerly anticipating the lid lifter, which will be held this Saturday, April 4th. For more information, please visit www.I-30Speedway.com .
The COMP Cams Interstate Cup presented by Dixon Road U-Pull-It was created in 2011 to reward drivers for competing at both tracks. A.G. Rains from West Memphis, Arkansas claimed the title in each of the first three years before seeing fellow West Memphis resident, Marshall Skinner dethrone him in 2014.
For 2015 the tracks have once again coincided their schedules to not run Winged 360 c.i. Sprint Cars on the same night to further their cooperation. Each weekly racing series point’s event through September 12th at each track will count toward a driver's point total in the program. Any special event that pays more than a weekly show does not count as a point's event for the series.
Drivers have no restrictions on how many races that they can miss at each facility to still be eligible for the season-ending point's money. Points acquired in all races will count toward the final total.
The final payout for the series will pay ten places, and the minimum payout for the final COMP Cams Interstate Cup will be the following: 1)$2,000 2)$1,500 3)$1,000 4)$800 5)$700 6)$600 7)$500 8)$450 9)$350 10)$300 and as more sponsors are secured the payout may be increased.
COMP Cams has also posted the following contingency prizes for the top five:
1st - $1000 COMP Cams Gift Certificate PLUS Trophy Cup
2nd - $750 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
3rd - $500 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
4th - $250 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
5th - $125 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
In addition to money and contingencies, the program will reward provisionals. The driver, highest in the final top ten standings in the point's program, who doesn't qualify for the 7th Annual Ralph Henson Memorial on Saturday, September 19th at I-30 Speedway will get a provisional starting spot in the main event. Similarly the driver highest in the top ten in the final points (who didn't use a provisional at the Ralph Henson Memorial), who doesn't qualify for the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway on Saturday, October 3rd will get a provisional starting spot for the main event.
Race fans can also donate money to the point's fund if they so choose. For a $100 donation, a race fan can be the title sponsor on a Sprint Car Weekly Racing Series Event at either track, and 100% of that money will go into the point's fund.

I-30 Speedway Cancels Saturdays World of Outlaws Late Model Series Event Due To Wet Conditions Following Winter Storms
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. March 17, 2015 - Lingering wet conditions from the same winter storm systems that led to the cancellation of Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway's March 20 World of Outlaws Late Model Series event have forced officials from I-30 Speedway to also cancel the WoO LMS event scheduled for March 21 at I-30.
Large accumulations of snow that have slowly thawed and frequent rain have left the quarter-mile oval and its surrounding facility heavily saturated, with large portions of the tracks pit area inaccessible. With forecasts predicting more wet weather later in the week, track promoter Tracey Clay was forced to call off the event.
"I want to thank Tracey and her father, Joe for their efforts to host this race," WoO LMS Series Director Tim Christman said. "They've always done everything possible to get our races in. Unfortunately, the harsh weather this winter has made it impossible for the track to host a major event this weekend."
In light of the cancellation, I-30 Speedway hopes to host an open practice on Sun., March 22 for its local divisions. More information is available by visiting www.I-30speedway.com.
World of Outlaws Late Model Series competitors return to action at the Douglas Dodge Ram Trucks Illini 100 March 26-28 at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Ill. The blockbuster weekend features an open practice on Thurs., March 26 ahead of two separate WoO LMS programs on Fri., March 27 and Sat., March 28. Fridays program features a 30-lap A-Main paying $6,000 to the winner, while Saturdays main event winner will pocket a whopping $15,000.
General admission ticket prices for the Illini 100 are $25 for Friday and $35 for Saturday. Two-day tickets with a reserved seat are available in advance at the reduced price of $50. Two-day ticket prices at the gate will be $55 without reserved seating. Tickets are available now at http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com.
