USAR to Visit Music City USA

MYRTLE BEACH, SC - United Speed Alliance Racing will make its second visit to Music City Motorplex (formerly known as Fairgrounds Speedway at Nashville) on May 22 for the running of the H.G. Hill 250 Hooters ProCup Series race.

The race will the sixth of 13 regular season races in the Southern Division and one driver especially excited about returning to Nashville is defending Hooters ProCup Series national champion Shane Huffman. Huffman won the Advance Auto Parts Pole Award last year at Nashville and went on to win the race in dominating fashion.

"We are very excited to be going back to Nashville," said Huffman. "The track is a fun place to race and it has a lot of history there. I am glad we can be a part of it."

Huffman outdistanced Clay Rogers last year for the win and expects the duo will once again be racing for the win this Saturday night.

"I would say the running order will probably stay the same if we don't have any problems," said Huffman. "The track is really fast so you never know who will be up there to challenge for the win, but it should be a great race. The new radial tire compound BFGoodrich will feature there should be a great tire and we might see another track record fall."

In seven races so far this year in the Hooters ProCup Series, the track record has been broken five times in qualifying. The new compound will be a first for the Series at Music City Motorplex.

The H.G. Hill 250 weekend of activities will begin Friday afternoon with a pre-race "Motor Rockin Party" from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the H.G. Hill Food Store located at 1241 North Mt. Juliet Road in Nashville. Come out and visit with Hooters ProCup Series drivers in person and see the Naturally Fresh Hot Air Balloon. There will be food, games, tethered rides (weather permitting), prize give-aways and fun for the entire family.

For more information please contact the speedway at (615) 726-1818.
