I-30 SPEEDWAY ADDS ASCS MID-SOUTH VS. SOONER REGIONAL SHOOTOUT

TULSA, Okla. (May 17, 2006) -- The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region will square off with the potent American Sprint Car Series Mid-South Region in less than three weeks, as Little Rock's I-30 Speedway has added the Saturday night, June 3, ASCS Regional Shootout to the schedule.

It will mark the first visit by either ASCS Region to the high-banked, quarter-mile clay oval. The ASCS Mid-South Region, in its inaugural season, was rained out in its initial attempt to kick off the season at I-30 Speedway on April 1.

With four events in the books for the ASCS Sooner Region, 24 different drivers have competed in at least three events with the average car count above the 38 cars per event mark. Sean McClelland holds a slim four-point lead over Sam Hafertepe, Jr., with two-time Sooner Region champion a close third.

The ASCS Mid-South Region has broken out of the gates in strong fashion as well, with four different winners in four events and the power trio of Darren Stewart, Gary Wright and Dale Howard leading the points chase.

With the added race, the 2006 American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region slate consists of 16 events at nine different tracks throughout Oklahoma, northern Texas and Arkansas.

The inaugural season for the ASCS Mid-South Region is now composed of ten events at eight different tracks throughout Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri and Louisiana.

I-30 Speedway is located seven miles southwest of Little Rock off I-30 Exit 126. For more information, contact the track at 501-455-4567.

In its 15th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing in the United States, the American Sprint Car Series will present approximately 180 nights of racing at nearly 100 tracks throughout 27 different states and Canada in 2006 including the National Tour and its Regional Tours (Gulf South, Mid-South, Midwest, Northern Plains, Patriot Sprint Group, Rocky Mountain, Sooner, Southern and Sprints on Dirt).
