The 7th Annual IKE Honda Terry Sprague Memorial will include yet another new award presented by none other than Ross Wece!

Ever just had a bad day at the track caused by, well, yourself? Well, we understand and so does Ross Wece. In what is probably the most twisted and demented award ever given, the Ross Wece "Stepped On It" Award will be given to the driver that just has a plain old bad weekend caused by him or herself....Hey, at least you'll take home $75.

We would like to thank Ross Wece for his continued support of SIR by giving $75 to the "Stepped On It" award winner. The question is who are the front runners for this award going into the weekend?! #TSM14

Southern Illinois would like to welcome Brian Walker and Walker Racing Promotions as an 7th Annual IKE Honda Terry Sprague Memorial sponsor. WRP will be awarding a new award at the TSM this year entitled the Walker Racing Promotions "Perseverance Award". This award will be given to the final driver to transfer into Saturday night's A-Main through the LCQ. The racer that accomplishes this will receive $100 from WRP! Additionally, Brian will be giving away a free 3 month promotion package to the highest finisher in Saturday night's A-Main that is not currently a WRP client!

The owner of WRP, Brian Walker, has been huge in the promotion of open wheel racing, specifically micro sprints, in the last couple of years. Hailing from Oklahoma, Brian covers weekly action at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, OK and provides weekly write ups recapping all of the action. He also does weekend recaps for individual clients. Some of his micro sprint clients include drivers such as: Frank Flud, Chris Andrews, Nate Lauderbaugh, Frank Galusha, and this year's Hustle winner Jake Hagopian. WRP has also helped to promote SIR this year by covering the 2nd Annual Sawyer Chassis Highbanks Hustle presented by Lightning Wings, the July 19th weekly show, and last weekend's POWRi show.

Southern Illinois Raceway is very grateful to Brian for all he has done for not only us, but for what he has done and is continuing to do for micro sprint racing! He will be back to SIR this weekend covering the #TSM14 ! So head on over to his Facebook page, Walker Racing Promotions, and give it a like to keep up with all of the details from this weekend. Any drivers interested in becoming a client can contact him there as well.
