Ohio Sprint Speedweek stage is set for 21st time

CAMARGO, IL (6/5/03) - The 21st Annual $191,000 Ohio Sprint Speedweek will kick off Sunday, June 29th and run through Saturday, July 5, 2003, for "America's Series" the Haulmark All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars. Ohio Speedweek features racing events at six different racetracks for seven straight nights throughout the Buckeye state.

There has never been a clean sweep of all seven features by any driver, however, if that should happen this year, it would be worth $41,000 just in purse money alone.

The action starts at Attica Raceway Park on Sunday, June 29 with a $5,000-to-win show and moves to Wayne County Speedway at Orrville for equal pay on Monday night, June 30. First place money is also $5,000 for the Tuesday, July 1 Fremont Speedway All Star show.

On Wednesday, July 2, the tour swings down to K-C Raceway, south of Chillicothe, then the July 3rd show on Thursday returns to Fremont for another $5,000 prize. The high banks of Limaland Motorsports Park will host the Holiday Friday night July 4th activities, with the winner pocketing $6,000.

The whole Ohio Speedweek concept was laid out and put in motion 21 years ago by Eldora's owner Earl Baltes and he has chosen Portsmouth Raceway Park as the site for the Saturday wrap-up show paying $10,000 to win.

Because the event is open to all cars that meet All Star specs, drivers may choose to run one or all nights. Close to 50 cars are expected nightly with a complete show of time trials, qualifying heats, a dash and a C, B and A-Main feature at each track. Overnight campers are welcome at all facilities.
