KANSAS CITY, Kan.—The Iron Man Challenge will invade the Lakeside Speedway this Friday, April 11, with both USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods in action at the historic 4/10-mile clay oval.

USMTS Modifieds will be headlining the show, giving race fans three great classes of non-stop action to fill the program. Lakeside Speedway’s Grand National division will round out the four-class card.

The winner of the USRA Stock Car main event will pocket $750 with each driver taking the green flag getting no less than $100. USRA B-Mods will be battling for a top prize of $600 and $75 to start.

With one race in the books, Tom Schmitt of Independence, Iowa, sits atop the USRA Stock Car points entering Friday’s event. On the strength of his season-opening victory and three additional top-five finishes, Logan Martin of West Plains, Mo., leads the standings in the USRA B-Mod class.
