With the Showdown just over two weeks away, anticipation is at a fever pitch for the biggest Dirt Late Model race west of Missouri. The Great American Dirt Track is where all the action will take place with $12,000 going directly to the winner and $1,200 guaranteed simply to start the feature.
     “It’s a fantastic place to race, I wish we could hurry up and get there,” stated Eric Turner, who will be driving for Pannell Motorsports at the event. “I’ve been to every one of the big shows out there, and Patrick continues to build it and make it better, not only for the drivers, but fans too. It’s one of the best races of the year in my opinion.”
     Action will get underway with a $1,500 to win Showdown Preview on Friday April 27th. The evenings show is made possible by United Wireless. The big show will take place Saturday as Southwest Distributing joins United Wireless to present the “Showdown”. It will be a 50 lap shootout for $12,000 to win, with an A Main purse in excess of $50,000. Southwest Distributing supplies Miller and Coors Products for Western Kansas.
     “It’s great to have partners like United Wireless and Southwest Distributing,” stated Track Owner Patrick Johnson. “They appreciate what we have going on at our track and see value in what we do. This is really a winning situation all the way around.”
