$30,000 SPRINT CAR SHOW TUESDAY AT MUSKINGUM COUNTY SPEEDWAY

ZANESVILLE, OH - 6/22/99 For the first time since 1993, Sprint car racing returns to Muskingum County speedway Tuesday night, June 29. The special event is part of a $200,000 week- long tour and will be the third leg of the 17th Annual Ohio All Star Outlaw Sprint Speedweek. The show will also include the track's popular Late Model division.

Over 40 of the beat open-wheel, open-cockpit drivers in the country are expected to be throwing "rooster-tails" of mud off their right rear tires as they pitch their 1200 pound chassis into the turns of Muskingum's 1/2 mile oval. In 1985's Ohio Speedweek the track produced a 17.36 second lap, however, the next time in 1993, the fast lap was lowered to 14.050. This Tuesday the field will be trying to set a new mark in the 13 second bracket.

Drivers from six states and as far away as California have pre-entered for Tuesday night and will be eligible for the $9,675 point fund paid at the end of the week. Any Sprint car that meets the All Star specs is welcome to compete for nearly $30,000 in prize money posted for the Muskingum race.

The schedule of events for the Sprints includes warm-ups at 6:30 followed by time trials. Racing starts at 7:30 and will start with qualifying heats, a six-car dash and C, B and A-Main features as the size of the field dictates. A similar format is planned for the Late Models depending on the number of cars signed in.

Gates are scheduled to open at 4:00 PM and the track is located off 1-70 at exit 155 then north on SR 60 for 10.1 miles. Call 740-754-9199 race day for more information.
