LEBANON, Mo. (Nov. 27) — The Midway Speedway in Lebanon, Mo., will have new owners for the 2008 racing season as Lebanon businessmen Jack Jones and Tony Jackson Jr. have purchased the speedway from Harold Armstrong. The new owners will keep the action going on Friday nights, and will sanction their Modified division with the United States Racing Association (USRA).

"We will run the same regular classes this season as Harold had set, which includes Super Stocks, Factory Stocks, Modifieds, B-Mods, Bombers and 305 Winged Sprints for the Friday night programs," said Jones. "Harold has built a great thing on Friday nights here in Lebanon and we want to keep it going. Several of the Midway staff will be returning to help us out. We are going to be putting together our 2008 schedule here before long but we plan on opening up in early April with the regular racing season."

Jones, a Coldwell Banker real estate agent, and Jackson, who owns Outlaw Racing Engines, have competed at Midway Speedway the past three seasons. Jones, a Modified racer, and Jackson, who runs both Modifieds and Late Models, will see themselves in different roles on Friday evenings in Lebanon.

Jones finished up in the top of the Modified standings the last two seasons and has also won the Best Appearing Car award. Jackson won the 2005 Super Stock title along with the 2006 Modified title at the Midway Speedway.

Drivers in the Modified class at Midway Speedway will be competing for local track points as well as USRA Casey's General Stores Weekly Racing Series national points. With nearby Lebanon I-44 Speedway and Monett Speedway racing USRA Modifieds on Saturdays and Sundays, the three-track combination could help a Missouri driver become a player in the National Championship picture. Racing at Lebanon and Monett, Jackson wound up 13th in national points for 2007.

For more information concerning the Midway Speedway, call Jackson at (417) 594-0310. More information about the 2008 schedule will be available in the near future.
