Midwest sprint and midget fans, drivers, and teams facing a winter of racing withdrawal have one last chance to enjoy their favorite sport in 2021 this Friday and Saturday as Gas City I-69 Speedway hosts its third annual “Fall Festival of Speed and Non-Wing Nationals” as its 2021 season finale.

Friday night’s races start at 7:30 p.m. and consist of non-wing 410 sprint cars; IRA Auto Meter Wisconsin wingLESS sprint cars; USAC Midwest Thunder regional midgets, and 600cc non-wing micros.

Saturday’s races have been moved up to start at 6 p.m. That show also features non-wing 410 sprint cars and IRA Auto Meter Wisconsin wingLESS sprint cars, which will be joined by UMP/IMCA-style modifieds, street stocks and hornets.

The pit gate opens at 3 p.m. on Friday, with the grandstands opening at 4:30 p.m. The drivers’ meeting is at 6:05 p.m.; hot laps/group qualifying is at 6:35 p.m., and the racing begins at 7:30 p.m.
