The Owosso Speedway in Ovid MI will host the Auto Value/Bumper to Bumper Super Sprint Series this Saturday August 2. The ultra fast 3/8-mile oval has hosted the AVSS many times before and is always one of the most competitive tracks on the AVSS calendar.

The winner of the May 10 event was rookie of the year candidate Brian Lay of Millbury OH who captured his first ever AVSS victory at the "BIG O". His win in May was very popular with the Owosso Speedway fans and he will be back to try to make it a clean sweep at Owosso this season.

The action begins with the pit gate opening at 12, hot laps at 1, qualifying at 4:30 and racing at 7. The best in winged sprint competitors are expected to compete and they include current point leader Tom Fedewa of Leslie MI, Jason Blonde of Litchfield MI, Jeff Bloom of Bangor MI and Kevin Feeney of Oxford MI. Also expected are Gary Fedewa, Bill Tyler, Hank Lower, Ryan Katz, Johnboy Hotchkiss, Jimmy McCune and Curt Shumaker. A field of 25- 30 sprintcar stars is expected to compete at Owosso this Saturday. In 2002 it was Kevin Feeney and Jimmy McCune taking the honors.

The Owosso Speedway is located on M-21 six miles west of Owosso in Ovid MI. The AVSS website is www.supersprints.com. The schedule page on the website will link you right to the Owosso website if you click on the track name.
