Traffic citations will not be issued tomorrow (10-10-09) when four sheriffs from southwest Missouri put the pedal to the medal to see who's got the fastest car on the dirt track.
Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott, Christian County Sheriff Joey Kyle, Webster County Sheriff Roye Cole and Douglas County Sheriff Chris Degase will battle it out for bragging rights and a nice shiny trophy at Springfield Raceway for the inaugural race of the Sheriff's Challenge Cup.
To get to Springfield Raceway head west on Kearney, it is just west of Highway 160 and I-44. Gates open at 1 p.m. with the eight lap race slated to get underway at 5 p.m.
Ticket prices are ten bucks for grandstand seating or you can get in the pit for thirty dollars.
All proceeds will benefit One Missing Link. The charitable organization, which assists law enforcers and families with missing or lost children and adults, was founded by Janis and Stu McCall whose daughter, Stacy, went missing along with Sherill Levitt and her daughter, Suzie Streeter in 1992.
Who says that sheriff's have the best control of a car....well at least on a race track.
Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott slid sideways during the race and Webster County Sheriff Roye Cole slammed into him.
Christian County Sheriff Joey Kyle was the big winner and has bragging rights for the next year that he indeed is the fastest sheriff on the dirt track in southwest Missouri.
