Spokane, Washington - The day before the Indianapolis 500, HEI Motorsports will run the same type of open-wheel cars that were made famous by many of the Indy 500 starters. This Saturday night, May 28th, HEI Motorsports will be at the Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, Idaho running with the Sprint Cars and the Washington Midget Racing Association (WMRA).

Second generation driver, Wes Helgeson of Spanaway, WA will be on-hand running his black #23 sprinter. Helgeson, the 2004 Rookie of the Year in the sprint car series is excited about the upcoming weekend, “The sprint cars are always a crowd favorite and I think combining them with the midgets will showcase what open-wheel cars are all about for the great fans at Stateline Speedway. We are also very excited about having Airstream of Spokane on the side of the car for this big event, and look forward to a relationship in the future with an organization that is as professional as we strive to be.”

2005 Rookie of the Year contender, Tony Berry heads into the weekend with momentum on his side. Winner of the first two events of the season, Berry anticipates another good outing. “It is a good feeling to know that each time you show up at the track you can contend for the win. The HEI Motorsports team has put together another great package for me and hopefully we can continue our success.”

Berry will be very busy this weekend as he has partnered with Tony Villelli Racing to run the Budweiser and Pepsi sponsored #36 midget racecar with the Washington Midget Racing Association. This will be Berry’s debut in a midget style racecar, something he has wanted to do since he was a young child. “I appreciate the opportunity that Tony Villelli has given me. He has a big weekend with his radio show the Speed Sport Report on 970 AM The Fan, with the Indy 500 being on Sunday. He had sponsor commitments and thought that we could represent them and his team well. It is a terrific vote of confidence in me and I hope to capitalize in his great car this weekend.”

HEI is proud to announce new advertising relationships with Sallee Chevrolet in Milton Freewater, Oregon, JOE’s Racing Products and Airstream of Spokane. “These great companies reflect what we work so hard to do here at HEI,” commented Dixon Helgeson, owner of HEI Motorsports. “Having these organizations join our marketing program is exciting and we will represent them well this weekend.”

Come watch the open-wheel action this weekend at Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, Idaho and cheer on the HEI Motorsports sprint car team and the Tony Villelli Racing midget team.
