LEBANON I-44 SPEEDWAY HONORS ITS HOMETOWN WITH "OUR TOWN, YOUR TOWN" NIGHT THIS SATURDAY

 

(LEBANON, Mo.) - With NASCAR on board as the official sanctioning body of Lebanon I-44 Speedway, fans can look for special initiatives and offers throughout the season. Perhaps the biggest of those comes this weekend with "Our Town, Your Town" night at Missouri's only asphalt oval, headlined by our own community and area businesses as well as a jam-packed slate of racing and the death-defying stunt artists from the Monster Energy Showtime MX Stunt Team and their tricks atop their bikes.

 

Businesses, food vendors and a family game zone highlight the Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce, "Our Town, Your Town" night with fans receiving the chance to attend the action for just $10 per car load in all Spectator viewing areas!

 

"Ten dollars for a car load of people is an incredible deal, the is a great fundraiser for the Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce which benefits the entire city of Lebanon and Laclede County," Greven said. "We are so to facilitate the event and add our full slate of racing action to an already great evening of entertainment, along with the chance to honor local businesses and restaurants in addition to fireworks and a game zone. It's a cliché but this really is an event that has something for everyone!"

 

"Between the five divisions of great racing and the Monster Energy Showtime MX Stunt Team, fans are going to go home wowed," Lebanon I-44 Speedway General Manager Kevin Greven said. "This is one of those shows where we circle it on the calendar ahead of time, because we know it's going to be a good one. The forecast looks great for NASCAR racing and some head-shaking awesome maneuvers from those showtime performers."

 

The O'Reilly Auto Parts NASCAR Pro Late Models headline the racing play bill with the Budweiser NASCAR Modifieds and Monster NASCAR Sportsman also in action. The Coca-Cola Chargers are on the slate as well as the visiting Compliance Fire & Safety Baby Grands, with gates scheduled to open at 5 p.m. and hot laps already started. The first green flag waves at 7 p.m. sharp with the Monster Energy Showtime MX Stunt Team making multiple hits before commencing with a dazzling array of stunts to close out the night under a huge fireworks display.

 

" We really want to thank Darrell, Ashley, Chris, Byron and the entire commitee at the Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce for being great partners in the event along with Monster Energy and Missouri Eagle for their huge partnership and we hope the community supports it so it is a great fundraiser for the Chamber".
