INDIANA SPRINT WEEK SLATE REVISED; 8 RACES INCLUDE 2 REPEAT BACK-TO-BACK VENUES

The revised eight-race 2007 Indiana Sprint Week slate, featuring the Lucas Oil USAC National Sprint Cars, now includes two tracks which will host back-to-back events for the first time in series history.

The new schedule calls for opening races July 11 and 12 (Wed.-Thurs.) at Lawrenceburg Speedway, followed by July 13 and 14 races (Fri.-Sat.) at Gas City I-69 Speedway. The Sunday, July 15 venue remains at Kokomo Speedway.

The following week opens with the July 19 (Thurs.) race at Kamp Motor Speedway in Boswell, while Friday's July 20 race remains at Bloomington Speedway and the Saturday, July 21 finale remains at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt. The race at Boswell was originally slated July 18 but was moved back to Thursday.

The additional events, replacing recently deleted venues, are courtesy of race organizer Dave Rudisell (Lawrenceburg) and Jiggs Thomason (Gas City).

"We are pleased that these tracks have stepped forward to fill the gaps," says USAC National Sprint Coordinator Greg Staab. "This allows our original concept of a two-week slate to mature to eight races and gives racing fans a sensational tour."

The 2007 Indiana Sprint Week Schedule is now as follows:

Wednesday       July 11
Lawrenceburg Speedway                Lawrenceburg

Thursday July 12 Lawrenceburg Speedway Lawrenceburg
