ASCS Rocky Mountain Region Takes on Thomas County

TULSA, Okla. (August 2, 2005) -- The American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region will be in action this Friday night as the series makes its first stop of the season at Thomas County Speedway in Colby, KS.

Just over two-thirds of the way through the 2005 ASCS Rocky Mountain Region slate, Thornton, Colorado's Eric Miller holds a slim eight-point lead over Washington native Gary Taylor. Jake Pierson of Bellvue, CO, is just 28 more points back in third.

Rookie contender Bob Schaeffer remains in contention as he sits just 62 points off the pace in fourth, with Denver's Jeff Heffner rounding out the top five.

The balance of the current top ten in ASCS Rocky Mountain Region points includes Scott Milan (Ft. Collins, CO), John Jacob (Aurora, CO), 15-year-old Rookie pilot Josh Fellows (Longmont, CO), Denver's Joe Wagner and Rookie racer Cyrus Perme of Littleton, CO.

To allow series drivers to compete in Knoxville's 360 Nationals if they so choose, Friday's card is not a points race. Schaeffer is the only series regular entered in the Knoxville events.

Following Friday's event, the series will return to Thomas County Speedway on September 4.

Thomas County Speedway is located in Colby, KS, off I-70 Exit 53, then 1.7 miles north on SR 25 at the Fairgrounds. For more information, contact the track at 785-443-6174 or 785-460-6403.

The 2005 ASCS Rocky Mountain Region slate consists of 19 events at ten different tracks throughout Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, South Dakota and Wyoming.

In total, including the O'Reilly ASCS National Tour, the Southern Tour and the Sooner, Gulf South, Rocky Mountain and Midwest Regions, the American Sprint Car Series will sanction more than 100 night of racing in 2005 at approximately 50 different racetracks throughout at least 16 different states.
