PRELIMINARY USAC WESTERN SCHEDULES ANNOUNCED

A total of 141 races are listed on the preliminary 2009 USAC Western racing calendar, announced today.

Highlights of the schedules announced today include the return of Stockton 99 Speedway, Shasta Speedway and Petaluma Speedway. It's been three years since USAC has raced at Stockton, the California track being closed during 2008. The last USAC race at Shasta in Anderson, Calif. was in 2006, while USAC hasn't been at the Petaluma, Calif. Fairgrounds since 2005.

Stockton will host the Western Sprint Cars on May 2, then welcomes a "tripleheader" on October 10 featuring the Western Sprints, Midgets and Ford Focuses. The Western Midgets race at Shasta on July 3 and September 12, while the USAC/CRA Sprints are at Petaluma on June 20.

The Western campaign opens February 20-21 with the "Copper on Dirt" at Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix, Ariz. and concludes with a USAC/CRA Sprint race at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway on November 28.

Among milestones in the 2009 season will be the 100th USAC/CRA Sprint race at Perris Auto Speedway (currently scheduled March 28), the 200th USAC/CRA Sprint race (late in the season) and the 200th USAC Western Sprint race (mid-2009).
