USAR Changes Start Time of Final Race
Goodyear Pit Crew Challenge Forces Change at USA International

Fayetteville, GA (September 19, 2001) -- United Speed Alliance Racing President Gene Cox has announced the start time for the final race of the season at USA International Speedway on Saturday, November 24, 2001 will now be 7:30 p.m. The start time has been moved back 30 minutes to accommodate rescheduling of the Goodyear Pit Crew Challenge.

The Pit Crew Challenge was originally scheduled to be held at Chicago Motor Speedway last week. The national tragedies that occurred last week in New York and Washington, D.C. forced cancellation of that event and the challenge was then rescheduled.

" We are very happy to have the Goodyear Pit Crew Championship scheduled for USA International Speedway," said Cox." This race will determine our 2001 Hooters ProCup Series National Champion and we will also crown pit crew champions on the same day. We appreciate Billy Martino and everyone at USA International Speedway working with us on the change in start time."

The name of the race will also become the Alan Kulwicki Memorial/Hooters 300. The 300-lap event is the longest event on the 2001 Series schedule.

The race will be the final event in the Four Champions Championship Series which will use a playoff-type format for the first time in a stock car touring series to determine its national champion from a field of 50 drivers from the Northern and Southern Divisions of the Series.

The Goodyear Pit Crew Championship will be held at 5 p.m. before the start of the Alan Kulwicki Memorial/Hooters 300.
