USAC ANNOUNCES TRIPLEHEADER DURING PRI WEEKEND AT ORLANDO

INDIANAPOLIS -- USAC will sanction a tripleheader during the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show weekend Dec. 1-2 in Orlando, Fla., a two-day non-points affair with three of its top series.

The Valvoline National Sprint Car Series, National Midget Car Series and Ford Focus Midget Car Series will all be in action at the Orlando Speed World Raceway 3/8-mile paved oval, with practice, qualifying and heats scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 1 and racing set for Friday, Dec. 2.

Performance Racing Entertainment, the promoter of the event, will pay $4,000 to the winner of the 40-lap Sprint car feature, $2,500 to the victor of the 40-lap National Midget feature and $750 to the 20-lap Ford Focus winner. In addition, any driver to win both the Sprint and Midget feature will earn a $50,000 bonus from Mopar. The driver winning the Midget feature must start last in the Sprint car feature to be eligible for the bonus.

Other money prizes will be offered based on qualifying, positions per lap and participation.

"With Florida's famous weather in December, we'll be able to offer a spectacular night of frantic, wheel-to-wheel USAC Sprint and Midget racing action for all of our exhibitors and attendees on Friday night," said Steve Lewis, the PRI Trade Show producer. "In turn, they'll be able to mix and mingle with thousands of their industry friends at the racetrack."
