Following on the heels of Greenbush Race Park's popular Chad Olson Memorial, the Northern Shootout has the potential of being Southern Manitoba's most successful dirt track racing event this season. The 2013 Chad Olson Memorial drew an impressive 19 Lighting Sprint teams.
Think this is going to be just another race? Better think again. August 11th will feature a $2,500.00 purse with $1000.00 going to the winner. All competitors will go through time trials. There will also be a pole dash.
Morden's popular oval dirt track is the perfect setting for such an event. Wide open spaces with plenty of room for everyone. The staff at ALH Motor Speedway always welcomes it's racers and reflects the friendly in 'Friendly Manitoba'. Sunday evening racing should help draw teams who will be racing just across the line at Devil's Lake Speedway on Saturday, August 10th.
A post-race pit party, live entertainment and pork barbecue are all being planned as part of this great evening of racing.
Lightning Sprint time trials begin at 3:30 PM. Racing starts at 4:00 PM.
The Inaugural NLSA Northern Shootout is presented by Triple E Developments, Wolfe Enterprises and Elite Crushing.
