Tulsa 100 USAC Silver Crown tickets available.

Lonnie Wheatley - TULSA, Okla. (April 3, 2003) - Ticket orders for the USAC Weld Racing Silver Crown series Tulsa 100 are now being taken. The much-anticipated event, the first auto racing event to take place at the legendary Tulsa Fairgrounds Motorplex since 1984, will be held on Sunday afternoon, September 14.

The USAC Silver Crown cars last competed on the famed Tulsa Fairgrounds soil in 1980, then a 5/8-mile oval, when Rich Vogler and Billy Englehart shared victory honors in the twin-75 lap main events.

Defending USAC Silver Crown champion J.J. Yeley, USAC Midget champion Dave Darland, Jay Drake, Tyler Walker and Donny Schatz are among the numerous entries expected for the event on the ¾-mile dirt oval.

Qualifying for the inaugural Tulsa 100 will begin at 1:00 p.m. Upon the completion of qualifying, all drivers on hand will take part in an autograph session with the fans, before taking to the track for the last chance qualifier and the Tulsa 100.

Tickets for the Tulsa 100 are $36 for Box Seats, $31 for Reserved Seats and $26 for General Admission. General Admission tickets for children, ages 6-11, are $11.

Tickets are also available for the USAC National Midget "Night Before the 100", to be held at Sapulpa's Creek County Speedway on Saturday night, September 13. Creek County Speedway's quarter-mile semi-banked dirt oval, located just 25 minutes southwest of the Tulsa Fairgrounds, will serve as host to all the stars of the USAC National Midget series as a prelude to Sunday's Tulsa 100.

Tickets for Creek County Speedway's "Night Before the 100" are available for only $20 in advance. "Night Before the 100" tickets will be $22 at the gate on race day.

More information on the Tulsa Fairgrounds Motorplex, the Tulsa 100 and the "Night Before the 100" is available at www.tulsafairgroundsmotorplex.com.
