The information for the 39th Annual Cecil Harlan Memorial Kegger, presented by Crain Hyundai, has been released.
The long-time event will once again return to the famous high banks of the mighty Tri-State Speedway on March 29th, 30th and 31st, 2018. The event name was slightly changed a few years ago to honor the late Cecil Harlan, who was the long-time former owner and promoter at Tri-State Speedway. Cecil also created this event.
This year's event will feature over $33,000 in prize money up for grabs with racing in seven classes that will include Mini-Stocks, Front Wheel Drives, Factory Stocks, Super Stocks, USRA B-Mods, USRA Modifieds and the new Ca$h Money SDS Late Models. The Ca$h Money late models are a brand new touring series being headed up by Dustin Mooneyham and Justin Wells with the series based out of Southwest Missouri. The series is aimed at making late model racing competitive and affordable. They plan on running races this season at tracks in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. The Kegger will be their first race of the new series and is already attracting interest, not only from regional drivers, but from other states outside of the four-state area.
