WAR ADDS HISTORIC “QUEENS ROYAL” TO 2015 SCHEDULE
2/4/1015 California, MO-
After what was already an impressive schedule for the WAR Sprint Series in 2015, it just got a little bit better. WAR officials announced today the addition of the “Queens Royal” annual race, held at St Francois County Raceway in Farmington, MO to their 2015 schedule! Series director Andrew Korte stated “We’re really excited to be a part of this event! The Queens Royal Race is a pretty big deal here in the Midwest and for us to be invited to be a part of it is really cool!”
This will be the first visit of the WAR Series to the 3/8 Dirt Oval, and they will run along side the Winged Sprint Cars for a complete open wheel show. The event is slated for Sat Sept 19th 2015, just one weekend before the always exciting Hockett Memorial, at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO. “It will be 2 really exciting weekends of racing, and a great way to wrap up the season” Korte went on to say.
In years past the Queens Royal Race has provided fans with some of the best racing of the season, and with the addition of the WAR non wing sprints, this year will surely not disappoint! The race will also be added to the Series newly formed WAR “East” division, and will be a co-sanctioned event for the two. For more information on the WAR Series you can contact Series Director Andrew Korte at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 573-680-4413.

California, MO (Dec 13th 2014)
As the Impact Signs Awnings & Wraps WAR Sprint Car Series looks to their 4th season in 2015, they’re beginning to attract a lot of attention. With 83 different drivers competing with the series in 2014 at 9 different tracks throughout the Midwest, it’s safe to say non wing sprint car racing is alive and well!!
Series Director Andrew Korte announced today in a broadcast from the Keizer Wheels booth at PRI in Indianapolis, IN that not only would WAR be expanding their reach in 2015 by starting a new region in IL, but were also happy to announce a partnership agreement with the nations best LED display manufacturer NEXT LED.

Next LED is an American manufacturer of commercial, billboard, sports, and indoor LED Displays. “Our Midwest-focused approach and strong partnerships allow us to support all types of small to mediums size businesses, billboard operators, and indoor and outdoor sporting venues with unprecedented service.” Said Brett Wright, Director of Sales “In short, a Next LED display comes loaded with value. We put the quality and work ethic of the heartland into every sign we engineer and assemble from our headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.”
"It's exciting to have a company like Next LED partner with us,” Korte said “LED signs, billboards, and video screens have become the tool of choice for businesses large and small that are looking to really drive sales and make an impact on their customers, and to not only have a company that's involved in such a cutting edge technology, but to be the leader in the industry is just, really awesome."
Of Course Series Title Sponsor Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, will again be teaming up with the series for 2015, and look for even greater things to come out of the merger. The series will now be known as the Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps WAR Sprint Series presented by Next LED.
"This really just seemed like a good fit” Korte stated “Impact Signs Awnings & Wraps has been with us since the beginning, and with Impact being a preferred, top selling dealer for Next LED Products, I really think this will be a great partnership for all of us!"
"It seems every day you see more and more LED Signs at businesses, and sports venues large and small, we're looking forward to taking all of Impact and Next's products to the tracks we visit across the Midwest and showcasing them! We've always really focused on not only providing great racing for our fans, but great "entertainment"... when our fans leave our race we want them to feel like they've got their money's worth and had a great experience. With LED technology there are so many more doors of opportunity that can be opened, and with my awesome staff, Impact Signs, and Next LED all working together I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store!"

Black Victorious at Valley
Grain Valley, MO (September 12, 2014)- Three seasons ago when the WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps had its inaugural race at Valley Speedway, JD Black was the winner. On Friday night, the Grain Valley driver was victorious again with a strong performance during the annual Weld Family Memorial.
It was also a special evening as driver Brent Fasse organized a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project and money was raised for this great cause. All WAR drivers also sported Wounded Warrior stickers on their cars in support.
Point leader Chris Parkinson took the lead from his outside front row starting position as he was followed by Wyatt Burks and Black.
The lead trio would continue this way for the first six laps. On lap seven, Burks put a slide job in turn two on Parkinson for the lead with Parkinson turning back under Burks to retake the lead down the backstretch. Burks again pulled a slide job in turns three and four, but Parkinson again turned back under to retake the lead down the front stretch.
Over the next three laps, Parkinson continued to lead with Burks remaining within striking distance. Black, fast-qualifier Casey Shuman and Chad Goff were also in the hunt.
On lap eleven, Burks attempted a slide job in turns three and four. The duo made contact with Burks sliding to a stop in turn four.
Parkinson led again on the restart as he was followed by Black, Shuman, Goff, and Cody Baker. Black made his move on lap thirteen as he got by Parkinson in turn two. Black steadily increased his lead as Shuman and Goff started to put pressure on Parkinson for the second spot.
Shuman’s run would come to an end on lap twenty-two when his car came to a stop in turn two.
On the restart, Black was followed by Parkinson, Goff, Dylan Kadous, and Baker. Kadous was putting heavy pressure on Goff for the third spot over the last handful of laps with both just behind Parkinson.
Black would go on to the checkered flag in his MC Electric/Sage Fruit/S&S Electric Twister with Parker 305 power. In turn four, Goff made a last ditch effort for the second spot with a slide job on Parkinson. As Goff slid high and tried to regain his momentum, Parkinson moved back under to run second in his 54th Street Grill and Bar/Country Kids Daycare/Ozark Barge and Dock DRC with Elam Machine power. Kadous also was able to move under Goff as he finished a close third in the RHR Motorsports/Bully Brand Brackets Avenger with Gaerte power. Goff was fourth in his B&D Racing/Country Kids Daycare/Midwest Specialty Flooring DRC with Kercher-Mopar power. Josh Stephens charged from the sixteenth starting spot in the Summers Farms/Stephens Automotive DRC with Gaerte power to round out the top five. Baker was sixth as he was followed by Tony Rost. Ricky Lee Stangl, Taylor Walton, and Chad Tye rounded out the top ten.
Heat races for the thirty-two car field were won by Shuman, Black, Tyler Blank, and Kadous. Todd McVay was victorious in the B Main.
The WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps will next be in action at the annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO on September 26 and 27. Each race will pay $1000 to win.

Morgan Masters Springfield
Springfield, MO(August 23, 2014)-Leading all twenty five laps, Chris Morgan took home his first career win with the WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
Morgan shot into the lead from his first starting spot only to see the yellow come out for Tim Kent and Cody Crabtree, who had both spun in between turns one and two. Kent would continue from the back of the pack while Crabtree would see his evening end with front end damage.
On the second start, Morgan again took command as he was followed by Mitchell Moore and Casey Wills. Before the third lap could be completed, a yellow would come out for Zach Chappell and T.J. Muths, who spun in turn three.
Once green, Morgan again took command with Moore, Wills, and Wyatt Burks following. Burks started moving forward as he got by Wills on lap five and a lap later, he worked his way by Moore for second.
By lap ten, Burks had made his way to within a car length or two of Morgan, but he could not find his way around his fellow Topeka, KS driver.
As the laps started to wind down and with Morgan and Burks running the bottom side of the raceway, Moore and sixteenth-starting Chris Parkinson started making a charge using the high side in turns three and four and running a groove higher in turns one and two.. Lap by lap, they got closer and closer to the leaders and when the white flag was thrown, Moore was right on the tail tank of Burks for second. The duo made a run down the backstretch, but Morgan was too strong and picked up the win in his Bob Goans-owned Midwest Specialty Flooring/Wagner Excavating/Akin Trucking MRP Chassis with Engine Connection power under the hood. Burks just held off Moore for second in his Industrial Maintenance Inc/ Kansas Powertrain Maxim with Trondson power. Moore made it a Sunflower State sweep of the podium in his Kelly Potter-owned XXX with Moore power under the hood. Parkinson continued his season long run of top-four finishes by running fourth in his 54th Street Grill and Bar/Ozark Barge and Dock Service DRC with Parkinson power under the hood. Due to the misfortune of point leader Chad Goff having motor problems, Parkinson also left Springfield as the new WAR point leader.
Wills edged Josh Stephens at the flagstand for fifth. Kent came back from his earlier spin to run seventh and Chappell did the same to finish eighth. Ricky Lee Stangl and Pete Palazzolo rounded out the top ten.
The WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps will next be in action on Sunday August 31st at the Central Missouri Speedway in Warrensburg, MO.

Chappell Scores WAR Win at Springfield
Springfield, MO(July 19, 2014)-In a race that saw multiple lead changes and lots of passing throughout the field, Zach Chappell emerged victorious with the WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps on Saturday night at Springfield Raceway.
Driving the Korte Transportation/Hockett Racing #77, Chappell took the lead from his pole starting position as he was followed closely by Chad Goff, Chris Parkinson, and Taylor Walton.
With the spots rapidly changing behind him among Walton, Josh Stephens, Parkinson, and Devon Huff, Chappell would lead the first four laps before Walton would take over the point running the high side in John Hillman's #14 on lap five. Walton would lead through lap seven before Chappell made a charge and took over the top spot again on lap eight with Goff following him for second. Goff would take over on lap nine as he was followed by Chappell, Walton, and Parkinson. Another driver on the move during this span of the race was Tim Kent. Kent took over the fourth spot from Parkinson on lap eleven. Goff would continue to lead through lap fifteen when Walton's fine run would come to an end with a flat tire costing the Warrensburg, MO pilot the third spot and bringing out the yellow flag.
On the restart, Goff ran low with Chappell running the high side. Goff would lead lap sixteen with Chappell getting a great run on the high side to take over the lead on lap seventeen. The Talala, OK chauffeur would go on to his first career WAR win in the Hockett Racing DRC with Don Ott power. Parkinson got by Goff on lap nineteen and would continue his string of great runs with a second in the 54th Street Grill and Bar DRC with Parkinson power. Goff, who was also fast qualifier on the evening, ran a strong third in his B&D Racing DRC with Kercher-Mopar power. Huff, who found some good speed on the top side late in the race, was fourth in his Twister with Chevy power. Stephens was a solid fifth in the Summers Farms/Stephens Automotive DRC with Gaerte power. Kent was in the running throughout and would come home sixth in his Risley Trash Service Triple-X with Rose Racing power under the hood. After a heat race mishap and a leaking fuel line that sent him to the pits to be fixed as the cars were lining up for the A, Lexington, MO's Danny Thoman charged from the back of the pack and finished seventh in his Cars Plus Credit #27X. Dylan Kadous was eighth followed by Pete Palazzolo and John Helm.
Bob Thoman, who was fourth in WAR points heading into the night, got over the bank in turn two and crashed into the retaining wall during heat one ending the Higginsville, MO driver's night early.
The points race for the WAR title is heating up with Goff leading Parkinson by eight points heading into next weekend's race at the Midway Speedway in Lebanon, MO on Saturday July 26.

Stephens Tops Valley
Grain Valley, MO(July 3, 2014)-Shaking off the bad luck that has plagued him at times this season, Josh Stephens picked up his first win of the season with the WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps on Friday night at Valley Speedway.
Before a lap was in the books, fith-starting Wyatt Burks spun coming off of turn four bringing out a caution. The second attempt at green saw Mitchell Moore stop on the frontstretch with a damaged left rear wheel and John Helm spun in turn four. Moore, who had mechanical problems throughout the evening, would see his night end.
On the third attempt, J.D. Black and Bob Thoman led the field to the green flag. The two battled early with Black smacking the wall on the backstretch. He would continue, but a group of drivers including Danny Thoman, Josh Stephens, and Chad Goff were able to get by him on the low side. Danny Thoman would lead lap one and before the second lap could be completed, Black rolled to a stop and his evening was over.
Thoman led on the restart as he was pressured heavily by Josh Stephens. Stephens would get a great run coming off of turn four to lead lap two.
Stephens would steadily increase his lead as Danny Thoman was pressured by Goff and Bob Thoman for the second spot with Chris Parkinson rounding out the top five at this point.

Wissmiller Wins at Quincy
Quincy, IL(May 25, 2014)- On a night that will go down as one of the most memorable in the history of the WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps, Mitch Wissmiller picked up the win on Sunday night at Quincy Raceways. Chris Parkinson led the 16 car field to the green flag as he was followed by Josh Stephens. With Parkinson out front, the battle early was between Stephens and Chad Goff for the second spot. It would stay this way until lap eight when Wissmiller started moving forward quickly. By lap nine, he was up to second when the first yellow would come out for a Brian Armitage spin in turn four.
On the restart, Wissmiller powered by on the high side as Parkinson continued to run second. By this point, though, all eyes were on Korey Weyant. Weyant, who earlier had run strong run with MOWA, started at the tail and had worked his way up to fourth by lap ten. A lap later, Weyant had disposed of Stephens for third. Weyant steadily worked his way up to Parkinson and Wissmiller. On lap thirteen, he powered past Parkinson into the second spot.
On the next lap, Stephens, who was running in the top five, would see his series points lead take a huge hit as he pulled into the infield ending his evening. The final yellow of the night would come out on lap sixteen for an Armitage spin in turn four. Once the race went green again, Wissmiller and Weyant had a great battle for the top spot and as the pair battled, Parkinson used the bottom groove to make it a three way battle for the lead. With all three cars in short racing quarters, lap twenty three saw them cross the flag stand in a near dead heat. The trio made contact and it looked like disaster would happen. All three drivers did a masterful job of keeping their cars straight and Wissmiller would go on to his first WAR series win in his Maxim. Weyant was a strong second in his KWeyant Custom Paint Eagle with Automotive Machine power. Parkinson finished just behind Weyant in his 54th Street Grill and Bar DRC with Parkinson power. Goff was fourth in his B&D Racing DRC with Kercher-Mopar power. Bob Thoman was fifth in his Cars Credit Plus DRC. Pete Palazzolo was sixth with JD Black seventh. Robert Black, Tommy Rockwell, and Wade Seiler rounded out the top ten.
Fast qualifier Devon Huff took a nasty series of tumbles in his heat as he got up and over another competitor. He was not injured.
The WAR Series will next be in action on Saturday June 7 at the Springfield Raceway in Springfield, MO.
