BLOOMINGTON SPEEDWAY UNVEILS 1998 SCHEDULE

BLOOMINGTON, IN (February 4, 1998) - Bloomington Speedway celebrates its 75th Anniversary year with a solid season of short track racing complimented by America's top touring series. With its characteristic high banks and rich red clay, Bloomington is recognized as one of the nation's fastest and most competitive quarter-mile ovals.

The Friday night lineup headlines the Pennzoil World of Outlaws (June 12), USAC's Stoops Freightliner Sprint Cars during Indiana Sprint Week (July 24), the 10th Annual Sheldon Kinser Memorial (August 28), and the second Tribute to Dizz Wilson winged sprint car program (August 21). Racin' Fest '98, featuring NAMARS midgets and non-wing sprint cars, moves from its Sunday afternoon date to Friday night, September 18, as part of the Indiana Triple Crown. Also moving from Sunday afternoon to Friday night (September 25) is the 3rd Street Stock & Open Wheel Modified Nationals.

The 1998 schedule adds several new events, including the Northern All Star Late Model series (August 7) in their inaugural season. Another addition to Bloomington's calendar is a triple-header featuring UMRA TQ midgets, Indiana DWARF Cars, and an Enduro 150 on August 14. The 4th of July program headlines the American Mini-Sprint Association with Bloomington's fireworks spectacular.

Opening night, May 1, kicks off Bloomington's three short track series: non-winged sprint cars, open wheel modifieds and Indiana street stocks. The sprint car championship will be competed over ten programs, including three winged sprint events. Open wheel modifieds will contest a dozen point races, and street stocks ten point events. As last year, the Sheldon Kinser Memorial will be the final points race for all three divisions.
