The Atchison County Raceway (aka "The Cage") stands ready for its season opener this Saturday, April 29, flying the USRA flag for both the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and Holley USRA Stock Cars.

ACR stands tall in its purse for the two classes offering $400 to win and $75 to start in both divisions.

On any given night, if 30 cars show up to race in either of the two classes the payout for the top three are increased with $500 going to the top spot.

Convinced yet? Wait there is more...

The Smackdown Challenge will add yet another $100 to any car in the two classes that can finish top five at any Friday night track or previous Sunday night track and comes to "The Cage" on Saturday and sins the main event.

In addition, a pit pass is still just $30. General admission prices are just $12 for adults and totally free for youth ages 15 years and younger.

The fast 1/5-mile proves to be the smoothest and most racey track around. The racer calls it the funnest time they have ever had in a race car and fans are on the edge of their seat.

A $10 one-event temporary liscense is available weekly. In addition, ACR will introduce the very belated fuel injection to dirt track racing.

"The 5.3 fuel injection engine will provide the racer with a very cost effective option all the while maintaining the performance that the racer and fans expect," said track owner and promoter Phil Birkinsha.

The 5.3 fuel injection will compete in the Holley USRA Stock Car class in the 2017 season. In addition to the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and Holley USRA Stock Cars, the Atchison County Raceway features unsanctioned Hobby Stocks, E-Mods, Compacts and the John Brown Construction Kidzmodz.

It all unfolds every Saturday in "The Cage" throughout the spring and summer season. There is no other place to be than all "caged up" at the Atchison County Raceway on Saturday nights. See you there, and until then "Don't be afraid of The Cage."
