USCS Outlaw Thunder Dirt Cars Ready For Eight-Day Four-Race Swing From May 20-June 5

FAYETTEVILLE, GA - The United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Dirt Tour is preparing for a four-race swing over eight days. The Volunteer State will host two complete shows, followed by events in Alabama and Mississippi.

The USCS winged outlaw sprint cars will begin with Volunteer Thunder on May 29 at Garnertown Speedway in Luray, TN and then they will "Salute The Armed Forces and the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division" at Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, TN on May 30.

North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, AL will host the USCS Outlaw Thunder Dirt Tour on June 4, and then visit Columbus Speedway in Columbus, MS on June 5.

Pound-for-pound these 1,300 pound, 700 horsepower, fuel-injected, methanol-burning machines are the most powerful short track racing cars in the world. The wings on the race cars give them maximum traction in that they can pull wheelies down the straightaways. The top USCS drivers from eight different states are expected for the four-race tour.

Leading the entry list will be Tennessee's own Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN. The "Bartlett Bullet" is the defending and three-time USCS National Champion, and the defending USCS Clarksville Speedway champion. Gray also leads the USCS National, Outlaw Thunder Dirt, Asphalt Thunder, and Sunbelt Tour point standings.

USCS is the only winged outlaw sprint car series in the country that competes on both dirt and asphalt short tracks. The Garnertown and Clarksville events will carry USCS National and Outlaw Thunder Dirt Tour points. Gray is also the defending USCS Outlaw Thunder Champion.

Other top entries include "The Malabar Missile" Kenny Adams of Malabar, FL, along with Florida "Fountain of Youth Gang" members Danny "The Hammer" Martin Jr. of Sarasota, FL, top USCS Rookie driver R.J. Johnson of Wesley Chapel, FL, and Tom Winegardner Jr. of Pierson, FL.

Brice Wrenn of Lexington, SC leads the "Carolina Cruisers", and "Flyin' Brian" Thomas of Auburn, GA will lead the "Peach State Posse". In the coming days, USCS officials will be announcing more entries for the four-race tour.
