PINK LADY CLASSIC FIELD NEARLY SET
September 24, 2021 – Meridian, Idaho – The starting field for tonight’s’ 7th annual Pink Lady Classic at Meridian Speedway is nearly set. Only two spots remain and will be filled with a 15-lap Last Chance Qualifier prior to the 100-lap finale. Teams will be vying for chance to win $20,000 from the total purse of nearly $52,000.
The event will be a points race for NSRA and Speed Tour with a promotional involvement from Must See Racing presented by Engine Pro.
British Columbia, Canada driver Aaron Willison set a new track record and the right to claim the pole position for tonight’s event. Willison was the only driver to crack the 10 second barrier when he ripped a lap of 10.903 seconds around the 8-degree banked quarter- mile speedway. The right to lead the field for tonight’s event was worth $500 for Willison.
Several heavy hitters missed the transfer to the A-main during heat race preliminaries and were forced to crack the A-main starting lineup through the B-main including Eric Humphries, Bryan Warf, Jimmy McCune, Randy Dubois, and Matt Elliott among others.
Humphries led wire-to-wire to capture the 20-lap ‘Tom Elliott Sportsman Classic’ and secure a spot in tonight’s 100-lap Pink Lady Classic. The win was worth $1,000 for Humphries.
Willison and second fastest qualifier Colton Nelson received automatic starting spots and were locked into the feature event by virtue of their qualifying times. The duo will make up the front row for tonight’s event.
