USARacing Returns to Winchester Speedway for First Time Since 2003

Concord, NC - The USARacing Pro Cup Series will make a return visit to the famous High Banks of Winchester Speedway for the first time since 2003 in their only true Northern stop on the 2009 schedule. The Lucas Oil 200 will be held on Saturday, June 6th with the engines set to roar at 7pm. There will be an open practice for the series on Friday, June 5th.

Drew Herring had a rough go of it at Langley Speedway on May 23rd, but comes into Winchester as the series point's leader. Herring picked up his first ever series win on April 25th at South Georgia Motorsports Park, and hopes for another next weekend at Winchester.

Local favorite and Muncie, Indiana's own, Jim Crabtree Jr., will compete in the event for veteran car owner Darrin Odle. Crabtree is a former competitor with the Pro Cup Series and finished third in the Manning Service 100 with the CRA Super Series at Winchester Speedway on May 17th.

After one of the most exciting finishes in the Pro Cup Series history at Langley Speedway, the series Top Rookie, Lucas Ransone, will be heading to Winchester for the very first time in his racing career. The young Pro Cup hotshot currently sits 9th in the points standings after he finished second following a four-wide battle to the checkered flag at Langley. He was recently interviewed on the 51radio show on racetalkradio.com about his upcoming debut at Winchester Speedway:

"I've never been to Winchester but I heard it's pretty exciting. I've heard its racing just 6 inches from the wall," commented the Rookie. "We're actually bringing our back up car out there just in case."

General Admission tickets will be on sale at the gate for $20; students 9 to 18 are $10, children 8 and under are free.
