Sprint Invaders Return to Scene of Photo Finish Friday in Moberly
By Bill W (Moberly, MO) -- Two cars came roaring to the finish line at the Randolph County Raceway in early August not sure who the winner was. Garet Williamson ended up claiming his first career Sprint Invaders win, but Ayrton Gennetten was right there as well. Friday, September 3, both are expected to return to aim for the $2,000 top prize on the high banks near Moberly, Missouri.
Two-time series’ champion, Chris Martin, fresh off a win at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, leads the current point race, ahead of Jonathan Cornell, Kaley Gharst, Colton Fisher and Tanner Gebhardt. Daniel Bergquist, Wyatt Wilkerson, Cody Wehrle, Josh Schneiderman and Josh Higday round out the top ten.
Friday will be the fifth time in the last two seasons that the Sprint Invaders have invaded the 4/10-mile high banked oval. In addition to Williamson’s win in August, Gennetten took two victories and Randy Martin one in 2020.
Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with hot laps scheduled for 7 p.m., with racing to follow. Adult grandstand admission is $20, Seniors/Military are $15, and kids 13 and under are FREE. B Mods and 4 cylinders are also on the card.
Sprint Invaders Return to East Moline September 26
After an event in July that brought fans to their feet, and drivers smiling under their helmets, the Sprint Invaders will make a return visit to East Moline Speedway in East Moline, Illinois on Sunday, September 26. The event will be a non-point race, but will feature a raised purse paying $2,500 to win and $350 to start.
