This Saturday, July 17th will be the badest fastest show you’ve seen at Kalamazoo Speedway for many years. The mighty winged Super Sprints return to the Zoo as the Must See Racing XTreme Sprint Car Series will be here. This is the number one pavement Sprint Car series in the nation, with a full field of 28-30 cars expected. Also the Great Lakes Outlaw Late Models will be here taking on the Kalamazoo Speedway Super Late regulars with all of the Late Models running the super soft jumbo slicks! Also the Kalamazoo Super Stocks, the most competive class of race cars found anywhere will be on hand to continue their dog fight in the 2010 point battle. The Michiana Vintage Cars & the annual Tri-Sac reunion will also be on hand. This is perhaps the highest profile show we have seen at Kalamazoo over the last decade….don’t miss this one. (Raindate would be the next day, Sunday July 18th at 6PM).
