SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Going into this Saturday's Transport Graphics Championship Chase, the point battles at the Springfield Raceway are even hotter than the weather can produce as the drivers prepare for round number 11.

For this Saturday's events, the Speedway is offering a special Facebook Family package deal.

Go to www.springfieldraceway.com and connect to the Facebook link, get into the "Like" logo and then accept the special offer for this week's action and special promotion. By accepting it, two adults and two kids ages 6-15 can get in for only $20. That is a huge savings for a family of four.

Action features the high horsepower of the Budweiser USRA Modifieds, Reliable Chevrolet USRA B-Mods, Casey's General Stores Midwest Modz, Wheeler Metals Legends Cars and Young Lions, Pepsi Pure Stocks and the Williams Restoration Street Stocks.

Grandstand gates open at 5:30 with hot laps slated to start around 6:30 and racing action to start at 7:30 sharp.

Going into this Saturday's action, Carthage driver and five-time USRA Modified track champion Jackie Dalton holds a slim 30-point lead over Webb City's Mitch Keeter while Joplin's John Yeoman sets a solid third, only 56 points out of the lead. Dalton was barely able to keep Yeoman at bay last Saturday night as Yeoman is looking for his first win of the season. Both Dalton and Keeter have recorded three wins along with Bobby Pearish. Several of the drivers are getting closer to the winners circle including Yeoman, Rob Muilenburg, Robbie Bryant, Jerry Lankton and a host of others as drivers are preparing to chase the valuable USRA track and national points.

Webb City's Scott Drake still owns the number 1 spot in the USRA B-Mods as last week's winner Jon Yeoman Jr. has moved into the number 2 spot in the standings. Drake still leads the USRA B-Mod national standings with his GM Performance 602 crate motor. Yeoman broke a two-year winless streak last Saturday with the win as Mike Hailmann dropped to third place in the points. The battle behind Drake is very tight as the new drivers in this class are starting to move forward.

Special events coming soon to the Springfield Raceway include the Summer Perry Memorial on July 21 featuring Midgets in a special appearance, USRA Modifieds, USRA B-Mods, Legends Cars, Midwest Modz and Pure Stocks in a Transport Graphics points event. The Perry family ran the Springfield Raceway several seasons ago and Summer was a former area Speedway Queen. She was a teacher in the Ozarks and lost her life in a car wreck.
