FAYETTEVILLE, GA - United Sprint Car Series officials have announced some schedule adjustments as the only winged outlaw sprint car series in the country that competes on both dirt and paved tracks prepares its championship stretch drive with events on both surfaces.

The USCS Outlaw Thunder Dirt Tour event scheduled for September 17-18 at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, MS has been cancelled by the track, as they were unable to meet the proper insurance requirements regarding the safety fence between the racing surface and a spectator area. Track officials have informed USCS that changes will be made for a date in 2005.

Officials at Swainsboro Raceway in Swainsboro, GA have cancelled the USCS Outlaw Thunder Dirt Tour event scheduled for September 24-25 due to area economic reasons. Swainsboro Raceway officials have requested two USCS events for 2005.

USCS officials have added a date to the 2004 schedule with an October 2 Asphalt Thunder event at Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele, GA. This event will begin the stretch drive for USCS Championships in National, Outlaw Thunder Dirt Tour, and Asphalt Thunder points.

The USCS Asphalt Thunder Championship will be decided with a big double racing weekend on October 8 at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL, and on October 9 at Mobile International Raceway in Mobile, AL. The USCS Asphalt Thunder Championship weekend will also be highlighted with a look back at the history of the sport and how it came to be what it is today.

For many years, the open-wheel Supermodifieds were the top division in the Pensacola/Mobile area, and helped further the careers of legendary drivers like Bobby and Donnie Allison, Red Farmer, and Hooker Hood. During the weekend, many of these legends will return to Pensacola and Mobile to remember those days, and to meet and greet today's fans.

There will also be Supermodified race cars on display. The Supermodified evolved through the years to become the winged outlaw sprint car that competes on the asphalt tracks of America today.

USCS will switch from the Asphalt to the Dirt to end the season in the Sunshine State with two big events for the Florida Fall Brawl. Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, FL will host the USCS Outlaw Thunder Dirt Tour on October 23-24. The weekend will also feature the Air Flow Research Super Dash.

The Air Flow Research Super Dash will feature the top ten in AFR Power Dash points lining up for a ten-lap race paying $5,000-to-win.

The 2004 USCS season finale will take place at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL on November 5-6.

Top contenders on both dirt and asphalt include the defending and three-time USCS Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN, Danny Martin Jr. of Sarasota, FL, former USCS Champion Kenny Adams of Malabar, FL, top rookie driver R.J. Johnson of Decatur, TN, Chad Allum of Kannapolis, NC, Tom Winegardner Jr. of Pierson, FL, and former USCS Champion Red Stauffer of Winter Park, FL.
