ASCS Midwest Region Added to I-80 Speedway's TNT Card

TULSA, Okla. (July 20, 2006) -- The American Sprint Car Series Midwest Region has been added to the Tuesday night, August 15, card at Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway to make for a spectacular Sprint Car doubleheader atop the semi-banked, 4/10-mile dirt oval.

Now, fans will not only get to watch the nation's top wingless 410-ci drivers in the second leg of the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits COMP Cams Tour 'N Topless series, but they'll also get to see the cars and stars of the ASCS Midwest Region in action as well.

Last year's inaugural edition of the Huskerland Non-Wing 410 Sprint Car Nationals featured non-stop three and four-wide racing action, with Levi Jones and Dickie Gaines swapping the point numerous times before Jones held off a closing Bud Kaeding at the checkered flag to take the win en route to the first O'Reilly Sprint Bandits COMP Cams TNT championship.

This year, race fans will get the best of both worlds, as the ASCS Midwest Region joins in on the festivities as well. Currently, only 19 points separate the top four in Midwest points, with 19-year-old Chad Humston just seven markers ahead of 16-year-old Jack Dover. Jake Peters and Toby Chapman are in the thick of the championship points race as well, with four events to be contested between now and the August 15 event at I-80 Speedway.

Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway is located between Lincoln and Omaha off I-80 Exit 420, then 0.4 miles north on US 63, then west. For more information, contact the track at 402-944-2233.

The 2006 ASCS Midwest Region slate consists of fourteen events at eight different tracks throughout Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa and Missouri.

In its 15th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing in the United States, the American Sprint Car Series will present approximately 180 nights of racing at nearly 100 tracks throughout 27 different states and Canada in 2006 including the National Tour and its Regional Tours (Gulf South, Mid-South, Midwest, Northern Plains, Patriot Sprint Group, Rocky Mountain, Sooner, Southern and Sprints on Dirt).
