Minersville, PA - April 25 - The Doorways Unlimited KARS 358 Sprints are preparing for their second visit of the year to Big Diamond Raceway on Friday night, May 9, with an added incentive as Duval Dressler has announced that the feature event will pay $1,000-to-win.

The KARS Sprints will be joining Big Diamond Raceway's NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Modifieds and Roadrunners on the racing card that evening which gets underway with the first qualifying race at 8 PM.

In other Doorways Unlimited KARS 358-Sprint Series news, the Board of Directors voted Wednesday, April 23, to legalize Pro Action 200cc heads, with a maximum intake port size of 207cc in response to driver and owner inquiries. All part numbers and markings must remain on the heads.

The KARS Sprints have added Saturday, May 3, to their schedule for race at Silver Spring Speedway that should enable many teams to get another race under their belts before their return to Big Diamond. Two events at Port Royal were lost to the late winter as well as practice sessions at both Big Diamond and Port Royal. With only one KARS feature in the books, Dale Hamaker's win at Big Diamond's opener, the organization has been busy seeking more races and opportunities for competition.

Twelve events remain on the KARS schedule total schedule, which swelled to 15, including stops at Silver Spring. Port Royal, Selinsgrove Speedway, Accord Speedway, and Five Mile Point Speedway as well as six at Big Diamond.

Meanwhile the American Outlaw Action Sprint Series, which will join KARS at Big Diamond on June 13 in a special challenge event, have opened their 2003 season. On April 4, many United Racing Club cars traveled south to take on the AOAS at Swaimsboro (GA) Speedway and Curt Michael took the win over Matt Gerber, Johnny Bridges, Tom Hogue and Roland Williams. One night later at I-20 in Batesburg (SC) Speedway, Tim Hogue made it a URC sweep over Brice Wrenn, Jeff Young, Butch Pendergrass and Matt Gerber. This week, on the 19th, at Laurens County (SC) Speedway it was just the AOAS and Johnny Bridges took the win over Todd Saintsing, point leader Mary Anne Williams, Jeff Young and Bobby Courtwright.
