Mother Nature has wreaked havoc on the 2016 Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt schedule, and all four rain outs have been MAHLE/Clevite Beyond Limits Challenge events.
Due to the rain outs and associated scheduling conflicts, the five-race BLC schedule has been adjusted as follows:
- Saturday, June 18th, Merritt Speedway, won by Brian Smith,
- Saturday, July 9th, Thunderbird Speedway, won by Brian Smith,
- Friday, August 19, I-96 Speedway,
- Friday, September 2nd, Hartford Speedway,
- Saturday, September 3rd, Crystal Motor Speedway.
The BLC offers drivers the opportunity to focus on a mini-championship with its own point fund within the full Sprints on Dirt series points chase. The MAHLE/Clevite Beyond Limits Challenge Champion will be awarded $1,000. Point fund monies will be paid out to the top seven finishers in the BLC. To contend for the BLC championship, a driver must display SOD & all primary sponsors’ decals.
SOD points leader Brian Smith (Fremont, OH) also leads the BLC points, followed by Tom Schinderle, Dan McCarron, Steve Irwin, Brett Mann, John Gall, and Mark Aldrich.
