American Sprint Car Series Adds Rebel Region

TULSA, Okla. (January 4, 2007) - The American Sprint Car Series continues to expand its Regional reach with the addition of the ASCS Rebel Region in 2007. The Rebel Region brings the total of ASCS Region to twelve in addition to the O'Reilly ASCoT National series.

Under the guidance of Regional Director Larry Sams, the ASCS Rebel Region will sanction Sprint Car racing in Alabama, Georgia and North Florida.

"Larry Sams has a tremendous background in Sprint Car racing and he'll do a great job of reviving Sprint Car racing in that area with the ASCS Rebel Region," according to ASCS President and founder Emmett Hahn.

Sams background in Sprint Car racing is indeed extensive, ranging from penning columns for several newspapers throughout Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee over the past 15 years to announcing, public relations and media relations.

Sams has assembled an experienced staff of officials as well, including technical director Billy Williamson and his wife, Shirley, who will handle scoring, sign-in and record keeping among other duties.

"We look forward to rebuilding the fan and car owner interest in Sprint Car racing throughout Alabama, Georgia and North Florida areas during the coming years," Sams commented.

The framework for the inaugural ASCS Rebel Region schedule has already been put in place with several tracks already committed, with more expected to add ASCS Rebel Region events in the coming days.

The ASCS Rebel Region joins the American Sprint Car Series family of Regions that already includes the Coastal Region, Gulf South Region, Mid-Atlantic Region, Mid-South Region, Midwest Region, Northern Plains Region, Patriot Region, Rocky Mountain Region, American Bank of Oklahoma Sooner Region, Heintz Performance Southern Tour and the Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz.

The 2007 season will mark the 16th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing for the American Sprint Car Series, with the series set to sanction more than 225 nights of racing at approximately 100 different race tracks throughout at least 30 different states and Canada.
