'1 down, 244 to go' on the 2003 Road to the Brodix ToC.

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (April 4, 2003) - Kevin Ramey of Grand Prairie, Texas, kicked-off the 2003 'Road to the Brodix Tournament of Champions' last month by winning the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) Sooner Region show at the Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. Now there are only 244 more events to go before the entry deadline for the August 10th invitational event at the Knoxville Raceway, which will feature the top winged 360-cubic-inch sprint car drivers from a record fifteen sanctioning bodies.

This weekend the American Outlaw Action Series (AOAS) will venture to Swainsboro, Georgia, and Batesburg, South Carolina, to begin their '03 season. In addition, the ASCS Gulf South Region opens at Chatham, Louisiana. Drivers must enter the Brodix ToC and have competed in a minimum of sixty-percent of their sanction's events by August 1st in order to even be eligible to compete at Knoxville. A maximum of ten invitations will then be issued from each affiliate's point standings, in order, from the point leader on down. The Brodix ToC, won last year by Knoxville regular Josh Higday, will pay $4,000 to win and feature one common set of technical rules.

The fifteen participating sanctions are: American Outlaw Action Series (AOAS), American Sprint Car Series (ASCS), ASCS-Gulf South, ASCS-Rocky Mountain, ASCS-Sooner, Empire Super Sprints (ESS), Eagle Sprint Touring Series (ESTS), Knoxville Raceway (KNOX), Montana Sprint Tour (MST), Northern Sprint Tour (NST), Sprint Invaders Association (SIA), Sprints On Dirt (SOD), United Racing Club (URC), WISSOTA Promoters Association (WISSOTA), and Winged Outlaw Warriors (WOW).
