Eight Slingshot races remain on the schedule at Jamestown Speedway including the The 2021 racing 50th Annual Jamestown Stock Car Stampede on September 24th and September 25th. This is one of the longest running specials in the upper Midwest and it will be two complete shows for all classes!


This is the Super National Event for the Mid West Slingshot racers.


With the increased car count at the World Championship Weekend in 2020 held at Linda’s Speedway, the goal for 2021 is set high. 100 Slingshots is the goal the Jonestown facility will hope to reach between the All Star Slingshots and the Junior Slingshot class.


If the 100 car mark is hit the purse for each race will be doubled. That would put no less than $400 on the line to All Star Slingshot race winners and $50 to take the green in each of the four races. The Junior Slingshots would see an increase to $250 to win the Friday and Sunday portions of the weekend.


A new format will be in place for the Saturday night racing action going into the 2021 race. Details will be released at a later date.


World Championship Weekend offers a rare scenario of racing four times in three days. Friday night a single event is held. Saturday the action picks up and racing is held both in the afternoon and the evening. Sunday is the finale with racing in the afternoon before the newly crowned World Champions are introduced.


The active Slingshot car count currently numbers near 400, with weekly racing venues located in Alabama, New York, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and New Jersey. Slingshots have competed throughout the country; including Delaware, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Maryland, Indiana, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona, Tennessee, and South Carolina.


A new assembled Slingshot rolls out of Speedway Entertainment at a cost of $8,888.
