Beginning this Friday, the first-ever Rick Beebe Heating & Air Smokin’ Hot Summer Series presented by Prime Racing Products begins for five weeks of exciting action during a ten-race shootout for USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods at Lakeside Speedway and the I-35 Speedway in Winston, Mo. The series will begin at Lakeside Speedway this Friday and conclude at I-35 Speedway on Saturday, Aug. 11.

The Smokin’ Hot Summer Series points fund is entirely separate and in addition to normal weekly racing earnings and points, with no registration fee for the points fund. Car registration at both tracks is required. Competitors must compete in at least nine of the ten Smokin’ Hot Summer Series events in order to be eligible for the guaranteed points fund payout. Each driver in each class will get one "mulligan" for one night of absence or worst finish if competing in all ten events. Points will be paid out on each driver's best nine finishes.

The top prize for USRA Modifieds is $2,500 while USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods are racing for $1,200 each. Each division pays down to 15th position and the total points fund is more than $20,000. In addition to the cash payouts, several contingency awards will be given to each of the drivers in the top 10 in all three competing divisions.
