Dates set for 2016 K&N Spring Fling 5-Day event


This year’s Day 3 winner.

With the stage set for the K&N Spring Fling Million scheduled for April 12-16 next year in Las Vegas, the next big event on the Spring Fling brand of races will be held at Bristol Dragway in Tennessee, with the dates now set for May 17-21, 2016.

“The Spring Fling 5-Day was our first attempt at race promoting back in 2010,” says co-promoter Kyle Seipel along with Peter Biondo, “and it’s been very well received by a lot of racers, all of whom have become more than just customers to us, they are all our friends. Even though we have expanded the series to Las Vegas for the past four years, Bristol will always hold a special place in our hearts. We look forward each year to Bristol because it reminds us of our roots.

“We’re also proud of the fact that it was the race where we instituted racing at the 1,000-foot distance,” Seipel added. “It was our compromise to satisfy both the quarter- and eighth-mile racers and it has spread to a lot of other bracket racing events as well.”
