Pendleton, Ind. (December 3, 2003) - In one of the most anticipated inaugural seasons in recent late model racing history, the seventh event of the 2004 ASA Late Model Series season has been set for Sandusky Speedway in Ohio on Saturday, August 28. This is the third announced race that will take place in the state of Ohio with other stops at Mansfield Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 5 and Toledo Speedway on Saturday, July 31.

"We are certainly pleased to add another Ohio track to the ASA Late Model Series schedule," said Joe Balash, ASA operations director. "Sandusky is a popular tourist area and will allow us to bring our brand of racing to a quality facility with a half-mile oval."

The nearly 37-year-old ASA National Tour has made two stops at Sandusky with Illinois racer Bobby Dotter winning the most recent event in 1987, fending off a furious challenge from Dale Earnhardt, the seven-time NASCAR Winston Cup Champion. The ASA Late Model Series will continue ASA's tradition at Sandusky Speedway in 2004.

The entire 2004 ASA Late Model Series schedule continues to be formulated with a total of 14 events expected to make up the final slate.

Officials are planning for 100-lap green flag races with a preference to not have competitors changing tires, adding fuel or needing pit stops during the events. The cars will include makes from three major manufacturers - General Motors, Ford and Dodge. They will utilize template bodies and engines from all three.

Rules for the 2004 ASA Late Model Series are available by contacting the ASA office at (765) 778-8088.
