BUSY WEEK FOR USAC IN INDIANA AND AT THE MILWAUKEE MILE
Indianapolis, Ind. -- The stars of USAC's Weld Racing Silver Crown Series, National Midget Car Series and Valvoline National Sprint Car Series will probably be worn out when this week comes to a close. One of the busiest weeks of the season is upon us.
The USAC Valvoline National Sprint Car Series is currently in the middle of Valvoline Indiana Sprint Weeks. The series is scheduled to race at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville tonight. The competitors will then head to Gas City I-69 Speedway Wednesday, Lawrenceburg Speedway Thursday and the Terre Haute Action Track Friday night. Opening night winner at Twin Cities Raceway Park and Sunday night's winner at Haubstadt, Cory Kruseman leads the Valvoline Indiana Sprint Week points, just two points ahead of Friday night's winner Tracy Hines. Hines won at Bloomington Speedway. Our friends at Monksmedia.com are scheduled to carry tonight's race from Putnamville tonight.
Many of the same USAC warriors that will take to the Indiana dirt tracks this week will also pull double duty, running at the Milwaukee Mile this weekend. USAC National Midget Car Series point's leader Josh Wise leads the series to Milwaukee Friday. Wise has eight top-10 finishes in nine races this year. The 30-lap midget feature is scheduled to start at 2pm Saturday. USACLive.com will have live timing and scoring coverage beginning with practice and qualifying on Friday.
USAC pavement master Dave Steele is undefeated on pavement so far this season in the USAC Weld Racing Silver Crown Series. He added the title of "all-time laps leader in the USAC Silver Crown division" at Pikes Peak International Raceway earlier this month. According to USAC, he also leads in terms of raced led, with 36 since his series debut at Milwaukee in 1993. A victory by Steele at Milwaukee Saturday would make him the first driver in series history to win four consecutive races on pavement. Live coverage of the 100 mile Silver Crown battle begins Thursday on USACLive.com. The series hits the track Friday morning for practice and qualifying with Live Timing and Scoring on USACLive. The race is scheduled to go green at 4:30pm on Saturday. (Times subject to change.) A full schedule can be found at www.milmile.com. Whatever happens, you can expect USAC's drivers to sleep well Monday, after a long week of racing.
USAC Live features Live Timing and Scoring which streams lap times and standings for each session from practice through the feature event. This feature, when combined with USAC Live's text updates and photos from trackside, delivers unprecedented coverage of USAC action. USAC Live (www.usaclive.com) will webcast all USAC Weld Racing Silver Crown Series events in 2005 from the track plus additional USAC Valvoline National Sprint Car Series events and USAC National Midget Series events.
