KANSAS CITY,Kan. -- Five years ago, track management at I-35 Speedway in Winston, Mo., and Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., agreed to a Border War for the Grand National and Stock Car classes. The program awarded the top three finishers in a feature event at one track to compete and finish in the top three at the other track the next race night and earn bonus money.

This was the beginning of tracks working together to promote each other and benefit the racer in the process, but the Border War was suspended during the 2013 racing season as each track operated with different sanctioning rules.

Since both I-35 Speedway and Lakeside Speedway will be operating under the United States Racing Association in 2014, the Border War returns with a slightly different format and the addition of two more classes.

The USRA Modifieds and USRA B-Mods will be included in the Border War, along with the Grand Nationals and the USRA Stock Cars.

The Border War pay format is also changing. The new format pays an additional $75 to the highest finishing competitor, $50 to the second highest finishing competitor and $25 to the third highest finishing competitor who raced the previous race at the sister track.

The Border War bonus is in addition to the to the driver’s regular purse and will be paid each night.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our drivers, pit crews, media and race fans.
