The Prairie Fire Race Series is proud to unveil the theme for the 2015 Prairie Fire Spring Races and introduce Cowboy Sparky to you! Cowboy Sparky was brought to life by the creative team at B2H Marketing in Wichita and is inspired by the city’s Western heritage. 

Jesse Chisholm brought his famous Chisholm Trail into the area and the city became an important cattle-shipping center as millions of heads of cattle were shipped out of Wichita's rail yards. Before being incorporated into Wichita in 1880, Delano emerged as a cowtown at the end of the Chisholm Trail….earning a reputation as a place for cowboys to unwind.

So dust off your running shoes and join us on Sunday, May 3rd. See ya’ll at the start line!
