Cajun Clash on tap April 11-13, format adjusted

Cajun Clash on tap April 11-13, format adjusted


The USMTS invasion of the Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La., happens this weekend for the 7th Annual Cajun Clash presented by Horseshoe Bossier City, and a format change has been announced for the three-day extravaganza which also features Factory Stocks and Limited Mods.

Originally scheduled to be two days of qualifying with all of the main events and money riding on Saturday’s show, the event will now return to the same format as the previous six Cajun Clash events with three complete shows and three nights of stellar payouts.

“If we’ve learned nothing else in 21 seasons of traveling across the country, it is that the weather is highly unpredictable everywhere you go,” said USMTS President Todd Staley. “But often times the forecasters are right and they are calling for a likelihood of rain on Saturday. The last thing we want to have happen is take all of the money from the racers and then pull the plug on Saturday’s show with no contingency plan.”

There will be a complete show of qualifying heat races and main events this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 11-13, for the USMTS Modifieds, Factory Stocks and Limited Mods.
