KEVIN THOMAS SUSPENDED FROM USAC COMPETITION

Kevin Thomas of Danville, Ind. has been suspended from competition by the United States Auto Club for violation of USAC competition rule 10.32 (conduct detrimental to racing). The suspension is effective immediately and will preclude his participation in Sunday's 25th Sammy Sessions Memorial racing program at the Winchester (Ind.) Speedway.

Recent statements made by Mr. Thomas regarding his participation in Sunday's events led to the decision by USAC Competition Director Mike Devin to pronounce the suspension.

"We have a committment to our participants to provide a safe, fair playing field offering an atmosphere of competitive equality," said Devin. "We regret the circumstances which led to this suspension but will, at no cost, permit any actions which jeopardize our stated goal. The safety of all persons involved in our events is of our utmost concern."

Sunday's Winchester racing program serves as the final event in the 1998 Stoops Freightliner/USAC National Sprint Car Series and the final midwestern event for the USAC National Midget Series, which concludes with three events in the western United States in late-November.
