USAC Sprints, USAC Midgets, & B-Mods To Race Both Nights

(Granite City, IL) This coming Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18, Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, IL will come alive with the sights and sounds of high powered racecars in a rare Sprint/Midget doubleheader.  While tickets will be available at the gate on raceday, limited top two row reserved seating is also available online for those who want guaranteed seat in the top two rows.  General admission sales are also available online for those who want to purchase ahead of time to help expedite the process on raceday.

The River Town Showdown was originally scheduled for Friday at Tri-City Speedway and Saturday at Federated Auto Parts I-55 Speedway but was changed to Tri-City for both nights due to flooding in Pevely, MO.  While the events were held a year ago, this is the first year where USAC Sprints and Midgets are both on the card, in addition to the local drivers in the B-Mod division.

After suffering with Mother Nature’s wrath early this season, the forecast looks absolutely gorgeous for this weekend’s doubleheader.  Weather for Friday and Saturday looks to be sunny with highs in the mid 80’s.  It will be a nice change for those wanting to see some racing in the St. Louis area, as nearly all races have been canceled at area tracks.

General admission pricing for each day is $25 for adults and free for kids 12 and under.  For the top two rows, tickets are $30 each for adults and $5 each for kids 12 and under.  To order your tickets online, visit  Tickets will be available at gate on each raceday.
