     The 2017 URSS Kansas Region Championship will kick off this Saturday at Rolling Plains Motor Speedway.  So far this season Mother Nature has been the only one taking the checkered flag as the first two races of the 2017 Season were washed out. The lightning fast 3/8’s high banks have seen some of the best battles for wins in the twelve year history of the series.

     Last year Luke Cranston took the first race win en-route to the Kansas Regional Crown. Brian Herbert swept the “Wheatshocker Nationals” and the Rocky Mountain Grill to mark off the race from his bucket list of career accomplishments. The Kansas Region is one of the most contested championships in the series.

     The past winners of the Kansas Region read like a Who’s Who of Sprint Car racing, with drivers young and old topping the standings. Smokey Fairbank, Jon Johnson (2), C.J. Johnson, Ty Williams, Ray Seemann, Brian Herbert, Luke Cranston (2), Jake Bubak and Zach Blurton all laying claim the Regional Crown.

     On the racing card Saturday night are the URSS/Racesaver 305 Sprint Cars plus the IMCA SportMods, Hobby Stocks and Sport Compacts, plus the Crazy Cruisers and the Kansas Antique racers will be trackside. General Admission for adults 13 and up $10, Kids 12 and under FREE GA thanks to First Kansas Bank and Walgreens.

     Pit gate will open at 4pm, GA at 5pm, and the green flag waves at 7pm.
