Lakeside Speedway returns to action on Friday, October 2, with a huge night of racing headlined by the Malvern Bank SLMR Super Late Models, USAC Midwest Wingless Sprints, Kansas Antique Racers (KAR) and Mod Lites.

Late Model fans in the Kansas City area have waited all season for an appearance at Lakeside Speedway after COVID-19 restrictions and inclement weather altered plans earlier this season. Seven-time champion Kyle Berck is a past winner of SLMR action at Lakeside Speedway. Other former SLMR Lakeside Speedway winners include Ryan Gustin (2014), Justin Zeitner (2014), Jesse Sobbing (2017) and Berck (2018).

Tad Pospisil of Norfolk, Nebraska, holds an 88-point lead over Justin Kay in the current SLMR standings. Jason Hahne, Jeff Tharp and Charlie McKenna round out the current top five in the SLMR West standings.

The USAC Midwest Wingless Sprints make their final appearance ‘Racing on the River’s Edge’ this weekend, and even though Wyatt Burks has already been crowned as the 2020 champion, it was a close battle all season with Don Droud Jr., Wesley Smith, Chris Parkinson and Brian Beebe. Droud and Burks recorded Lakeside Speedway victories earlier this season. For more information visit midwestwinglessracing.com.

Joining in on the action are the Kansas Antique Racers (KAR) and Mod Lites.
