BLOOMINGTON SPEEDWAY KICKS OFF MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATIONS

BLOOMINGTON, IN (May 24, 1999) - Bloomington Speedway kicks off a huge weekend of racing action Friday night, when the Pennzoil Cup non-winged sprint cars return to the fast quarter-mile oval. The sprint car competitors will battle for the $1,200 to-win payoff in a 25-lap main event.

Bloomington's Pennzoil Cup sprint car series spotlights the wheel-to-wheel action of traditional Indiana open wheel racing. Derek Scheffel, last season's Pennzoil Cup champion, climbed back to the top of the points standings during the Pennzoil World of Outlaws double feature. Brad Fox and Billy Puterbaugh Jr. battled to the finish in the last two features, with each driver claiming a win.

Bloomington's UMP modifieds and Indiana Street Stocks will also be in competition. Their purses pay $350 to win in 25 lap feature events.

General admission is $10. Youths ages 12 and under are admitted free with an adult. Pit admission is $20. The pit gate opens at 4:30, grandstand gates at 5:30, hot laps and sprint car qualifications start at 6:30, with racing beginning at 7:45.
