TULSA, Okla. (January 13, 2004) - With the nation's premier 360-ci Sprint Car touring series set for its 13th year of racing action, the O'Reilly American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores and United Trailers released its 2004 schedule today.

The 2004 O'Reilly ASCS National Tour schedule consists of 39 nights of racing action at 22 different tracks throughout nine states, including Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas, with several dates yet to be added.

Among the 2004 highlights will be the 12th Annual ASCS Speedweek. In keeping with tradition, this year's edition of the always-competitive ASCS Speedweek is slated to kick off at Arkansas' Batesville Speedway on July 9. From there, Speedweek makes a return to Little Rock's I-30 Speedway the next night, Saturday, July 10. After a night off, Tulsa Speedway hosts the third leg of Speedweek on Monday night, July 12, before moving on to Tri-State Speedway in Pocola, OK, near Ft. Smith. After a venue to be determined on Thursday night, July 15, ASCS Speedweek concludes at the Memphis hotbed of Sprint Car racing with Memphis Motorsports Park on Friday, July 16, and the legendary Riverside Speedway on Saturday night, July 17.

ASCS Speedweek will follow on the heels of the annual July 4th weekend journey through New Mexico, which this year includes Albuquerque's Duke City Raceway on Friday night, July 2, and a two night stand at Hollywood Hills Speedway in San Felipe Pueblo on July 3 and 4.

Also among the premier events on the 2004 O'Reilly ASCS National Tour schedule is the Knoxville Raceway 360 Nationals on June 11-12. A return trip to the famed Iowa half-mile dirt oval is also on tap August 7-8 for the Brodix Tournament of Champions.

The 2004 O'Reilly ASCS National Tour is slated to kick off at the 1/3-mile high-banked Delta Bowl Speedway gumbo clay oval in Tunica, MS, on March 27, an event which will be held in tandem with the all new 410-ci Sprint Bandit series. The season will once again end at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX, on October 22-23, with the 30th Annual Winter Nationals.

A new venue for the ASCS will be the all-new Lake Ozark Speedway in Missouri. The new speedway, set to open this spring, will host the O'Reilly ASCS National Tour on Labor Day weekend, Saturday and Sunday, September 4-5.
