Coming into the 11th year of the Fling brand of events, Peter Biondo and Kyle Seipel introduced the latest addition to their schedule — a Summer Fling at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, OH. The August 24-28 race offers a new venue closer to home for racers in the midwest looking to have the Fling experience.
As in years past, the four events for 2021 will be presented by Optima Batteries while the Summer Fling will take on the Ohio-based JEGS High Performance as the title sponsor.
“JEGS couldn’t be happier to help bring the JEGS Summer Fling to our home track, National Trail Raceway. It’s a special place for our family, friends, and local fans. The yellow and black of JEGS has been turning on win lights at National Trail Raceway for decades and going three generations strong,” said JEGS Director of Media and Motorsports Scott Woodruff. “We know there’s a huge demand for bracket racing within a day’s drive of historic National Trail Raceway in Hebron, OH. Peter and Kyle will put the Fling touches into the event that is sure to be a must-attend among the bracket racing community.”
The ‘all run/gate entries accepted’ JEGS Summer Fling will provide over $50,000 dollars in racer appreciation hardcore giveaways to drivers to accompany a $15K warm-up Wednesday, $25K Thursday and Saturday, and $100K main event Friday with Fling announcers Nate Hirschi and Brian Lohnes on the mic.
"I have a lot of great memories racing at National Trail Raceway and look forward to bringing our Fling brand to another top-notch facility. JEGS has been giving back to sportsman racers for decades and it's a perfect fit for us,” said Biondo.
The selection of National Trail Raceway as a fourth venue builds on an already robust roster of facilities on the Fling tour with the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, GALOT Motorsports Park, and Thunder Valley at Bristol Motor Speedway.
“I’ve had a strong friendship with the Coughlin family for over 30 years now. JEGS teaming up with the Fling at their home track really hits home for me. We cannot wait to team up with National Trail’s Jay Livingston and Jason Murray to give the racers, along with JEGS, the best product available,” Seipel said.
“Jay Livingston and JJ Murray have done an amazing job putting energy back into National Trail Raceway,” added Woodruff. “Big events like the JEGS Summer Fling provide an opportunity for non-local racers to see first-hand the improvements and upgrades that have been made. It’s going to be a great event on and off the track.”
