Ambitious USAC Slate Features 47 Dates
SPEEDWAY, Ind. (September 10, 2015) – The most ambitious schedule of AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car races in recent history has been released for 2016, including traditional events and new facilities spanning the American landscape.
Opening with the exciting “Winter Games VII” at Bubba Raceway Park in Florida in February and concluding with the “Oval Nationals” on the West Coast in November, the 47-race series will visit 23 venues in a dozen states.
New for 2016 are special “non-points” special events in South Dakota and Indiana. Two races at Badlands Motor Speedway in Brandon, S.D. August 20 and 21 offering a $50,000 winner’s share will be followed by a Wednesday night special event at the Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway which will kick-off the four-night “Sprint Car Smackdown V.”
The Jackson (Minn.) Motorplex joins the series this year for the first time in 28 years as the first of four consecutive races in the nation’s heartland. The June 22 race will be followed by a June 23 race at Eagle (Neb.) Raceway and a pair of races June 24 and 25 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kans.
Also new to the calendar are races at Indiana’s Montpelier Motor Speedway on April 23 and at Brownstown Speedway on May 21. A two-day show at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. on July 29-30 marks the first visit for the series to the track since a 2006 event won by Josh Wise.
