The final events will unfold starting on Wednesday July 18, at Boswell, Thursday July 19 at Terre Haute and Friday July 20 before concluding with the finale at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt on Saturday night, July 21.
The schedule was finalized during a race organizers meeting held at the USAC offices in Speedway on Nov. 28.
