1999 Busch North Series schedule set DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 18, 1998) The 20-event 1999 schedule for the Busch North Series, a part of the NASCAR Touring Division, has been released from the office of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Inc.

A quartet of events are set for New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, along with two races each at Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, Conn., and Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine.

Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International and Nazareth (Pa.) Speedway are each set to host a Busch North Series "stand-alone" and a NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Division/Busch North Series combination race in 1999. This marks a return to Nazareth following a one-year absence due to a scheduling conflict.

Single events are set for Lee (N.H.) USA Speedway; Riverside Park Speedway in Agawam, Mass.; New Thompson (Conn.) Speedway; Holland (N.Y.) International Speedway; Jennerstown (Pa.) Speedway; Star Speedway in Epping, N.H.; Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, Vt.; and Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Conn.

A conflict has forced the elimination of the Dover (Del.) Downs International Speedway event for 1999, but Dennis Huth, vice president for Administration for NASCAR told the attendees at the annual Busch North Series Awards Banquet, "Dover Downs CEO Dennis McGlynn was heartbroken when the conflict arose. I don't believe you have run your last race at Dover."

Al Robinson, Dover Downs International Speedway director of public relations and master of ceremonies at the BNS Awards Banquet, echoed Huth's comments, much to the delight of those in attendance at the event on Saturday night in Nashua, N.H.

The Busch North Series, NASCAR Touring schedule continues to offer one of NASCAR's most diverse selections of race tracks. In 1999 Busch North Series events will be held on oval tracks ranging from one-quarter mile short tracks to one-mile superspeedways, and on two road courses of 2.45- and 1.53-mile lengths.

The series opens its 1999 campaign at Lee (N.H.) USA Speedway on Sunday, April 18, 1999.
