GRAND FORKS, ND (February 27th) - For the first time since June 10th, 2007, the Northern Late Model Racing Assocation (NLRA) and Northern Outlaw Sprint Association (NOSA) will join forces at the same track on the same night (outside of their home track, River Cities Speedway)*.
The upper Midwest's two premier dirt racing series will not only meet once, but an unprecedented three times in 2016. The first double header on the schedule will come on Sunday, July 17th at the newly reopened Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, ND, presented by Buffalo Wild Wings and the Red River Valley Fair. Fans will be able to watch both the Sprint Cars and Late Models for free after purchasing gate admittance into the RRV Fair.
"If you want to watch two high profile classes on the same night, you'll definitely be getting the biggest bang for your buck," commented NLRA Late Model pilot, Josh Johnson. "I know Fargo still has a lot of Late Model and Sprint Car fans so it's going to be a lot of fun to see everybody come out on the same night."
A couple weeks later the two circuits will cross paths again at Greenbush Race Park in Greenbush, MN on July 30th and on September 9th at River Cities Speedway during the 10th annual John Seitz Memorial.
"With the NLRA and NOSA clashing together I don't expect anything other than a huge crowd with high anticipation of getting to see two special series racing together on the same night," said Jordan Adams, who picked up his first NOSA win at Greenbush in 2014. "From a drivers standpoint, it will be exciting getting to race with the NLRA outside of River Cities Speedway."
