Midwest All Stars Take on Montgomery and Morgan County This Weekend

The stars of the Midwest All Star Series roar into Jacksonville, Illinois Friday night, August 3rd for the series initial appearance at the Morgan County Speedway. The series features an ever-tightening battle for the season championship, along with a stellar field of local and regional winged sprint car heroes.

The series, featuring the "Best of the Midwest" has played host to nearly one hundred drivers in eight events thus far in 2007. The racing has been spectacularly competitive, with only Jerrod Hull and Chad Blonde notching more than one feature win. The series points leader, Hull, holds a narrow twenty-three marker advantage over Springfield's Rob Standridge. Another Springfield standout, twenty-year-old A.J. Bruns, is third, just eighty-four points behind Hull. Tim Montgomery is fourth with hard charging youngster Ryan Bunton in fifth. The event promises to be a wide-open affair on the high-banked quarter-mile.
