ASCS Southern Tour Adds Labor Day Weekend Date at Oglethorpe

TULSA, Okla. (June 8, 2005) -- Another date has been added to the Heintz Performance American Sprint Car Series Southern Tour slate, as Savannah, Georgia's Oglethorpe Speedway Park will greet the popular series for the first time on Saturday night, September 3.

The addition of the 0x00bd-mie slight-banked clay oval runs the number of events for the Heintz Performance ASCS Southern Tour to ten at seven different tracks throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia. Several more dates are still pending and will be announced soon.

The ASCS Southern Tour has already contested a pair of events this season, with the opener at South Carolina's Laurens County Speedway on April 23 and then Lawndale, North Carolina's Thunder Valley Speedway on April 29. Other tracks set to host the series this season include New 311 Speedway in Madison, NC, Wythe Raceway in Wytheville, NC, Fayetteville Motor Speedway in Fayetteville, NC and The Dirt Track at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

North Carolina's Scott Young is the ASCS Southern Tour's early point leader entering this Saturday night's action at New 311 Speedway.

The September 3 addition of Oglethorpe Speedway Park will make for a busy night of American Sprint Car Series racing action all across the country, as the O'Reilly ASCS National Tour presented by Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores kicks off the Lake Ozark Speedway 360 Nationals that night. Other events that night include the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region at Oklahoma Sports Park in Ada, OK, the ASCS Rocky Mountain Region at Oberlin (KS) Speedway, and the Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores ASCS Gulf South Region at Thunder Valley Speedway in Union Hill, LA.

The American Sprint Car Series will sanction nearly 120 nights of racing in 2005 at approximately 50 different racetracks throughout at least 17 different states.
