Mission Valley Speedway's 2004 Season Ready to Roar

Montana's longest fastest asphalt high bank 3/8 mile tri-oval is gearing up for the start of the 2004 racing season. Starting May 8, Saturday night short track racing thunder will return to the Mission Valley. The facility, the track officials, and racers are ready to go for the new season. This season will be jam packed with racing action. The Pepsi/Pizza Hut Super Stocks, MGD Light Hobby Stocks, Budweiser Compacts, Formula Indy's, Bombers, Bomber 4's and Krusers are all set to do battle again. Several special feature races also will hit the track this season.

The season will kick off with Fan Appreciation Night on May 8th with all classes racing and kids rides. The following Saturday May 15th is the Season Opener with all seven classes racing again.

This season marks the debut the Wholesale Fireworks Super Saturday race featuring the Northwest Late Model Challenge Series and the Muralts Travel Plaza Northwest Late Model 4's on May 29th (Memorial Day weekend),. The track will be rocking with lots of sharp looking, wicked fast fiberglass stock cars. On June 12th and 13th Bayview Inn and Blooms Furniture presents the Northwest Modifieds. The Mods will roar into town to put on a two day fenderless, open wheel racing show. The Ronan Auto Body NSRA Winged Sprints will pack the stands again this year on July 2nd and 3rd. The NSRA Sprints are the fastest cars to hit the asphalt at Mission Valley Speedway and always puts on a stunning show. Top Late Model drivers from the Northwest will be on hand to compete in the Don Aadsen Ford Power Stroke Late Model 125 on August 21st. The Lost Prairie Sky Divers will drop in before the late models drive flat out for 125 laps.

For those who just like to see cars get tore up Mission Valley Speedway will host some demo derby action. On August 7th the Pioneer Days Demo Derby will take place and on Sunday September 26 is the return of the Figure 8 Demo Derby.

There is a fresh new look to missionvalleyspeedway.com. The MVS website is the place to find the complete 2004 race schedule, along with points standings, pictures, video clips and every thing else you need to stay in tune with MVS racing (www.missionvalleyspeedway.com).

The 2004 Mission Valley Season begins May 8 and will conclude September 26. There will be racing on all but three Saturday nights during that stretch. The track is ready, and the drivers are getting geared up. There will be a lot of veterans, some drivers moving up classes and some new faces and new cars. Another exciting season is about to start. Be there!

Mission Valley Speedway is run and operated by the Mission Valley Auto Racers Club, a non-profit facility
