SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- After two successful opening event specials, the staff at the Springfield Raceway are now getting ready to start their Transport Graphice Championship Chase on Saturday, April 21.

Again this season, Transport Graphics will be the title sponsor in the Chase for the Championship. Ken Walker and the staff have really stepped up to the plate again this season as several drivers racing at the "Quick Quarter" have been putting the Kwik-Skin wraps on their race cars.

Transport Graphics has been serving the Springfield and surrounding areas for over 20 years. What started as a simple vinyl lettering shop has grown to become a nationwide provider of high quality marketing products. Located at 836 North Glenstone Ave. in Springfield, their location has over 43, 000 square feet and 12 drive-through bays to accommodate large vehicles, along with new state-of-the-art production equipment. From cars to semi-trailers, race cars, boats and commercial equipment, they can handle any type of need. Visit their website at www.transportgraphics.com.

For 2012, the Transport Graphics Championship Chase will feature the Budweiser USRA Modifieds, Reliable Chevrolet USRA B-Mods, Casey's General Stores Midwest Modz, Wheeler Metals Legends Cars, Pepsi Pure Stocks and the Williams Preservation & Lawn Care Street Stocks.

Again this season the Modifieds will be racing under the United States Racing Association banner.This allows the drivers to not only compete for local track points funds, but also a shot at the USRA national points fund money. Last season, Arkansas veteran Johnny Bone Jr. won $10,000 for his national title, while Springfield Raceway regulars Jackie Dalton and Mitch Keeter each made the top 20 which pocketed them $500 each.

The USRA bases national points on a driver's best 20 feature finishes during the season and rewards bonus points for car count and starting position.

Dalton took home his fifth Springfield track title last year and took home $1,500 in grabbing the track championship while the top 10 Modified drivers took home points fund money. This season any USRA modified driver who races a CT525 crate motor and is the top finisher with that motor purchased from Reliable Chevy receives an extra $100, it not purchased from Reliable then the driver still gets $50.

For 2012, Springfield Raceway will also be sanctioned by the USRA for the B-Mod class with Reliable Chevrolet again adding money for the top GM Performance Parts 602 crate engine feature finishers to the tune of $350. The top 602 crate engine in the feature race will take home an extra $125 with $100 going to the second-highest crate motor, $75 for third and then $50 for fourth. If the motor was not purchased from Reliable, then half the amoun posted will be distributed.

With the B-Mods running under the USRA sanction for 2012, it will give drivers in the area a shot at extra points fund money also as Monett Speedway (Sundays) and Humboldt Speedway (Fridays) will also sanction the division.

Current Springfield Raceway B-Mod rules apply at both Springfield and Monett.

The Transport Graphics Chase will run through Sept. 1 when track points end for all classes even though the speedway can still sanction for USRA national points in other events.

Springfield Raceway will be having all classes use the RACEceiver one-way communications devices this season and it is the drivers responsibilty to have a RACEceiver.
