All Star Sprints invade Delta Bowl Speedway June 20-21 for NCRA Co-Sanctioned event "The Hooker Hood Classic"

TUNICA, MS - The Haulmark All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars will make their inaugural visit to Mississippi to salute one the all time greats in racing Friday and Saturday June 20-21. Clarence "Hooker" Hood is a member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and a local Mid-South legend. To take part in this tribute, non-wing midgets will also make their first visit to the Mid-South in over 20 years, with the first ever SMRS vs. MARA Midget Clash. The Delta Bowl is a 1/3 mile high banked Gumbo Clay oval located on Stare Highway 3 in Tunica.

The sprint car program will be co-sanctioned by the National Championship Racing Association (NCRA) and Friday's program will pay $5,000 to win and the Saturday Grand Finale pays $10,000 to win. The two-day total sprint car purse is $66,895. Midgets will pay $1,000 to win Friday and $2,000 to win Saturday.

The inaugural visit to the Delta Bowl, a brand new speedway, presents a level playing field for the All Star and NCRA drivers since 410 cubic inch sprints have yet to visit the facility, so no driver will have an advantage when it comes to evaluating the race track surface and setting up their race car.

As a special promotion for the fans in attendance, before the start of each of the three A Mains Saturday night, the qualifying drivers will be introduced on the front straight. At this time they will each sign a Frisbee a throw it into the crowd. The person with the winning drivers' Frisbee from the Mini-Sprint feature will win $100. The person with the winning drivers' Frisbee from the Midget feature will receive $250, and the person with the winning drivers' Frisbee from the All Star Sprint-NCRA feature will receive $500.
