LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The calendar page has finally flipped to October, and that means it’s time for the sprint car world to converge on I-30 Speedway for the Short Track Nationals.

The crown jewel event in the 360-ci sprint car world takes place this weekend atop the high-banked, quarter-mile oval, with upwards of 80 competitors battling for a $10,041 winner’s share.

The 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires gets under way with a Test ‘N Tune session on Thursday, followed by a $2,500-to-win preliminary event on Friday and the 41-lap, $10,041-to-win STN championship finale on Saturday.

Thus far, the entry list is loaded with 55 racers from throughout the nation and beyond, with more expected by the time the first green flag flies.

Among the current entries are defending STN champion Blake Hahn, two-time STN winner Tony Bruce Jr., along with three-time Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour champion Sam Hafertepe Jr., two-time All Star Circuit of Champions titlist Greg Wilson and Ohsweken Speedway track champion Dylan Westbrook.

Hahn battled past Howard Moore and led the final 29 rounds of last year’s 41-lapper to become the 18th different winner in event history, just in front of Friday night winner Hafertepe and Moore.

Hall of Famers Sammy Swindell and Gary Wright top the STN win charts with five and four triumphs respectively, with other past event winners including the likes of NASCAR Xfinity Series title contender Christopher Bell, Paul McMahan, Brad Sweet, Bruce, Jason Meyers, Jason Johnson, Tim Montgomery, Jason Sides, Mike Ward, Tim Crawley, Wayne Johnson, Pete Butler, Terry Gray, John Gerloff and Steve Kinser.
