The Lebanon Midway Speedway prepares for one of the biggest shows of the season this Saturday, October 6, with a $500-to-win Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature highlighting the second annual running of the Bud Perry Memorial.

The race will award Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points, as will all Fall Series events at the track.

The format will be an open draw for heat race starting spots with passing points setting the starting field. The top 8 drivers in passing points will redraw for their starting spots in the 20-lap feature.

Bud's Tire will award the winner an American Racer KK-704 racing tire, the runner-up gets a new racing wheel and third-place will earn a $25 certificate.

Last year, Sam Petty held back repeated charges from 2017 track champion Tyler Brown to grab the win last season. Petty, who captured the 2018 Spring/Summer Series Out-Pace USRA B-Mod track title presented by S&S U-Pull-It Parts, is expected to head up a very talented field of area drivers.

Petty, who captured the 2018 Spring/Summer Series  and the current Fall Series point leader is expected to head-up a very talented field of area drivers.

Bud Perry owned Bud’s Tire & Wheel at Grant Avenue and College Street (Route 66) since 1958. His business was one of Springfield’s first to offer custom wheels. He welcomed visitors to his shop and invited them to take photos of those murals. Perry also was known in the area as a racer. In 2002, he was inducted into the Ozark Area Racers Association, Racing Pioneer Award and John T. Woodruff Award, which recognizes Springfieldians’ contributions to Route 66. He loved helping numerous charities including the ANPAC Car Show, Junebug Jamboree and Relay for Life among others. Leslie “Bud” Perry, 79, of Springfield, Mo., peacefully entered into his heavenly home on Jan. 23, 2017.
