ASCS Midwest Region Tunes up Friday at McCool Junction

TULSA, Okla. (May 21, 2007) -- Prepping to take on the O'Reilly American Sprint Cars on Tour National series in just over three weeks, the stars of the American Sprint Car Series Midwest Region will hone their skills with an outing at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, NE, this Friday night.

The card marks the third event of the season for the ASCS Midwest Region after kicking off the year with a double versus the ASCS Northern Plains Region at Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway on April 14-15 when Missouri's Brian Brown and South Dakota's Chuck Swenson split victory honors.

Brown has collected one of his seven career ASCS Midwest Region feature wins at Junction Motor Speedway, with other series winners in McCool Junction including Jake Peters and Jason Danley.

Swenson holds the series early lead, with other Nebraska racers among the top ten including Don Droud, Jr., Rick Ideus, Mike Boston, Jack Dover and Mike Chadd.

After capturing the series title in 2006, Lincoln's Toby Chapman hopes to rebound from a rough opening weekend that finds him 17th in current points.

Friday's action at Junction Motor Speedway gets under way at 7:00 p.m.

The semi-banked, 3/8-mile Junction Motor Speedway dirt oval is located in McCool Junction, NE, off I-80 Exit 353, then 5.6 miles south on US 81, then 0.3 miles west on CR 4, then north. For more information, contact the track at 402-724-3100 or 402-773-5538.

The ASCS Midwest Region 2007 slate consists of eleven events at seven different tracks throughout Nebraska and the immediately surrounding area.

The 2007 season marks the 16th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing for the American Sprint Car Series, with the series set to sanction approximately 240 nights of racing at more than 100 different race tracks throughout at least 30 different states and Canada.
