Matt Kenseth Returning to Slinger Nationals
Mar 15, 2022
This Sunday, Slinger Super Speedway kicks off its 75th season of racing in grand style. The event will be headlined by a Super Late Model showcase between Slinger’s Elite 8 Super Late Models and the ARCA Midwest Tour. This year, Racing America has partnered with Slinger to bring you all Slinger Speedway events throughout the entire 2022 racing season.
Along with the Super Late Model showdown, Slinger’s Uptown Motorcars Pro Late Models and Finish Line Sales & Service Modifieds will be in action. The Sportsman, Mueller’s Sales & Service Slinger Bees and American Super Cup Series will close out the evening of racing on Sunday.
The event marks the first time the ARCA Midwest Tour has competed at Slinger Super Speedway. They will be racing against Slinger’s local Super Late Model stars in the first race for the Elite 8 Super Late Model Series. Each race in the Elite 8 series will pay a minimum of $2,500 to win, with Sunday’s race paying $5,000 to the winner.
Gates will open at Noon CT, with qualifying starting at 12:05 p.m. Following qualifying, there will be a Top 16 autograph session prior to opening ceremonies at 1:50. Feature racing will begin at approximately 2:00 p.m local time.
