SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Round 3 of the Transport Graphics Championship Chase includes a full show Saturday night, May 12, as the Springfield Raceway presents the 6th Annual John Kuntz Memorial featuring the battle between the MARS and MLRA Late Model Series. All of the regular classes will be competing in this always popular event and the local talent gets a chance to show-off their skills as added money will be posted in all classes.

Action will feature the high-horsepower of the Budweiser USRA Modifieds as they battle for $600 to win while starting the 20-lap feature pockets a driver $90. The Dark Side Tanning Salon in Joplin will be the sponsor for the Modified feature Saturday night as not only track points but also drivers compete for USRA national points. Currently, five-time and defending track champion Jackie Dalton of Carthage holds a slim lead over Granby engine builder and racer John Yeoman by only four points as 2010 track champion Mitch Keeter finds himself only 10 markers behind as last week's winner Bobby Pearish and veteran Rob Muilenburg complete the top five.

Action will also feature the Reliable Chevrolet GM Performance USRA B-Mods where Scott Drake of Webb City maintains a 13-point cushion over Mike Hailman of Reed Springs as last week's winner Brandon Maggard moved up to third place, just 15 behind Drake. Former Midwest Modz champion Kaleb Copher and Springfield's Andy Beauchamp round out the top five.

Special pricing is in effect for this Saturday's event as grandstand admission for adults is only $20 while kids prices remain the same with those ages 6-12 only $5 and under 6 free. Pit passes are $35 this week.

The grandstands open at 5:00 with hot laps starting at 6:00 and racing at 7:00. Pit gates open at 3:30 and drivers check-in cuts off at 6:15.
