The Mid-West Drag Racing Series is Looking to Build on the Success of 2020 with Additions to Race Operations

TULSA, OKLAHOMA - (February 17, 2021) The Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West
Drag Racing Series is pleased to announce some Race Operations additions for 2021.

Race Operations Director Jimmy Boles will head the track prep at all eight of our events
in 2021. This will bring consistency to the surfaces we race on from coast to coast. In
continuing with our philosophy “For Racers, By Racers”, we listen to our racers and they
emphasized how one single track prep person would help them with their racing

“We learned specifically what each class needs and as we travel to each track, now the prep will be the same, allowing the racers to focus on making their best passes and not having to worry about the prep,” states Boles.

In addition to consistent track prep, MWDRS has added Technical Consultant Lonnie Grim as Tech Inspector. Lonnie and Jimmy will continue to work together in the pre-event tech as you arrive, while Lonnie will carry out spot checks, fuel checks, blower pulley inspections, and other checks throughout the event. Again, providing consistency and safety to the MWDRS series.

“I am pleased to be able to work throughout the season with the racers to make the series grow even more while maintaining safety for everyone involved”, states Grim.

“We learned a lot in 2020 and are very happy to be building on our success. Jimmy Boles is the best at making the surface at Tulsa top-notch for the Throwdown events and all the other events at TRP, so, it was a natural transition for him to do the track prep at all the MWDRS races. Having Lonnie at our races to make sure everyone is safe and fast is very important to me”, states series Founder Keith Haney.

“Lonnie consulted with the Series in 2020 and attended as many events as his schedule allowed. This year, he will be able to solidify Tech and build on the rules and things he has worked so hard with us on”, states Haney.

The MWDRS is pleased to have its tight-knit crew back for 2021. Ellen Eschenbacher will continue Event Marketing Director, Media, and Sales as well as go-to for series questions. Randy Hancock will serve as the Liaison to racers, staff, and sponsors throughout the event. Gary Rowe continues as our website designer, as well as Kallee Mills on Social Media and Kyle Christ as series Videographer.

MWDRS will showcase 8 events throughout the 2021 racing season, beginning March 19-20 at Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, Texas. Throughout 2021, the series will make stops at three new venues in Great Bend, Kansas; Belle Rose, Louisiana; and Houston, Texas. MWDRS makes two stops in Tulsa at the always thrilling Throwdown in T-Town at the Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park May 7-8 and October 1-2. All races will be streamed allowing for maximum exposure for our MWDR series racers as well as our valuable marketing partners.
