USAR, Pro Cup Series get Green Flag for 2009

Myrtle Beach, S.C. -- It has often been said that good things come to those who wait. Such is the case for fans of the popular Pro Cup Series, as officials from United Speed Alliance Racing announced the sale of the sanctioning body for the venerable stock car property on Friday, January 16.

The new ownership group, representing interests closely associated with the Series as well as established organizations within the motorsports marketing community, will look to release details regarding the 2009 Pro Cup season in the coming weeks as plans are finalized.

"It gives us great pleasure to let the racing community know -- fans, competitors and sponsors alike -- that USAR will be moving forward with competition in 2009," said current USAR President, Gene Cox. "In these trying economic times, we reached out to our team owners and corporate partners who have responded above and beyond the call of duty in securing the funding necessary for the Series to operate going forward."

With negotiations ongoing to secure a Pro Cup Series title partner, one thing is certain -- fans can again look forward to experiencing some of the best racing entertainment available, as USAR visits some of the most exciting track venues across the Eastern U.S. in 2009.

About USAR Started in 1994, United Speed Alliance Racing (USAR) proudly sanctions the most competitive stock car touring series in the country -- The Pro Cup Series. The USAR mission is to bring the show and spectacle of "big-time" stock car racing back home to the grassroots of America, where, for about the cost of taking the family to a movie, you can experience an evening of non-stop, fender bangin', door rubbin' action that is the hallmark of The Pro Cup Series -- "Where Real Racing Lives!"
