JACKSON – After a successful season opener last weekend, Jackson Motorplex is ready for another night of racing Friday as it hosts the opening event of the Midwest Power Series featuring Nebraska 360 Sprints and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars, along with RaceSaver sprint cars and NSL non-wing sprint cars.

The 360 sprint cars main event will pay $2,500 to win and $400 to start. It's the first of a dozen 360 winged sprint car shows at the track this season.

Hot laps are scheduled for 7:30 p.m., with racing to follow.
