PONCE INLET, FL - A busy month of May is set for the All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car series, with seven races on tap in four states, Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan and Ohio. The month kicks off with the first of two Central Pennsylvania visits, this one commencing at Hanover's Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, May 6. The following night, the series heads north for the annual Jack Gunn Memorial on the half mile of Selinsgrove Speedway. In 1998, Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease were All Star Lincoln winners with Rahmer also scoring at Selinsgrove Then it's back to Attica Raceway Park on the fairgrounds in Attica, OH for Chuck Ward night as a fundraiser for the injured All Star driver on Friday, May 12. The second appearance of the season at K-C Raceway near Chillicothe is set for the following evening. Craig Dollansky won the April Attica show, and in 1999, K-C featured five different All Star winners, Kenny Jacobs, Dean Jacobs, Byron Reed, Butch Schroeder and Alvin Roepke. The first Michigan stop of the season takes place on Saturday night, May 20 at the New 96 Speedway in Lake Odessa. Kenny Jacobs scored a pair of wins on the half-mile last season, with Frankie Kerr taking home the trophy in the other New 96 event. The month concludes with a Memorial Day weekend double header, first on Friday, May 26 at the Ransomville, NY Speedway, then off to the newly renovated Fremont, Ohio Speedway for a $6,000 to win show Saturday, May 27. The Ransomville stop is the first ever for the All Star tour there, while Fremont has hosted 58 All Star shows from Jack Hewitt's win on June 21, 1980 to Joey Saldana's win on July 30, 1997.

NOTE: The show originally scheduled for Portsmouth, Ohio Raceway Park has been dropped from the All Star schedule. Thanks.
