USAC National Sprint Car Series Returns to Terre Haute
Jones, Darland Continue Championship Battle at Action Track

(Terre Haute) Levi Jones and Dave Darland are seperated by a slim 40 point margin as they resume their thrilling battle for the 2009 USAC National Sprint Car title this Saturday night at the Terre Haute Action Track in the First Financial Bank Sprint Car Classic presented by MacAllister Machinery and Dorsett Mitsubishi.

Jones, who has won two of the last three USAC National Sprint car events run at the legendary half-mile, would appear to have the advantage in the Tony Stewart Racing #20 - but Darland should be strong in the #2B RWB Motorsports car. Like Jones, the multi-time Action Track winner has been to Victory Lane three times in 2009, but Darland has yet to grab a win on a 1/2 mile dirt track this season.

Expect plenty of competition for Jones and Darland this weekend, as Cole Whitt, Jerry Coons Jr. and Tracy Hines all hope to keep their championship hopes alive with a win Saturday night. Also expected to be a part of the feature field...Damion Gardner and Jon Stanbrough. Stanbrough picked off Gardner using a high side pass in turn four on the final lap to win the Republic Services Don Smith Classic in the 2009 Action Track season opener.

Saturday's First Financial Bank Sprint Car Classic presented by MacAllister Machinery and Dorsett Mitsubishi marks the final appearance of non-wing sprint cars at the Action Track this season. The track ticket office opens Saturday afternoon at 3pm, with fan gates set to open at 4pm. Hot lap sessions are scheduled to get underway at 5pm, with single car qualifying set to start at 6pm.

Adult tickets for the infield start at just $10, with an Infield Family Pass for 2 adults and up to 4 children kids available for just $25, and good news, the Action Track tunnel to the infield is dry! Children 12 and under are free in general admission grandstand and bleacher seating areas with the purchase of an adult ticket. Advanced reserved seat tickets are available by calling (812) 236-7951.
