ASCS Rebel Region Releases Balance of 2009 Schedule

TULSA, Okla. (February 27, 2009) -- After kicking off the 2009 Sprint Car racing season with last month's Winter Nationals at East Bay Raceway Park, the ASCS Rebel Region has released the balance of its 2009 schedule.

The American Sprint Car Series Rebel Region is currently slated for 13 nights of competition at nine different tracks throughout Georgia, Florida and Alabama, with several other potential events still in the works.

The ASCS Rebel Region will fire back into action on April 3 at Green Valley Speedway in Glencoe, AL, the first of two stops atop the 3/8-mile clay oval. The series will make another pair of stops in Alabama at Loxley's high-banked Deep South Speedway in June and August.

A handful of Georgia speedplants are set to host the series, including Lavonia Speedway, Oglethorpe Speedway Park (Savannah), Swainsboro Raceway, Dixie Speedway (Woodstock) and Screven Motor Speedway (Sylvania).

The series will also be in action in the Florida panhandle at Baker's Northwest Florida Speedway, with Tampa's East Bay Raceway Park to host the season championship finale on November 14.

Danny Martin, Jr., of Sarasota, FL, who won the East Bay Winter Nationals preliminary feature, escaped the series' opening weekend of action in January with a two-point advantage over Tampa's Gene Lasker.

With the release of the ASCS Rebel Region schedule, the ASCS (including the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters and its twelve Regional Tours) is currently slated for 209 nights of competition at 89 different tracks throughout 25 different states and two Canadian provinces in 2009.
