Nazareth, PA (April 20, 2002) - Nazareth Speedway officials announced today that due to the inclement weather and the postponement of both USAC Midget and Sprint features to Sunday, fans that have purchased general admission tickets for Saturday's events can redeem those tickets tomorrow for general admission seats.

Rain ended Saturday's events early, but USAC Midget and Silver Crown qualifying did get in and both lineups tomorrow will be set by qualifying speeds. After inverting the Midget field, Dave Darland will start from the pole position next to Michael Lewis. The Silver Crown field is made up of the top 32 fastest qualifiers, plus one provisional given to last year's highest racing car owner, putting Jason Leffler on the pole. Finally, Sprint cars will line up based on combined driver and car owner point standings and will take the green flag at 9:15 a.m.

Tomorrow's final schedule starts at 7:45 a.m. with USAC Silver Crown warm-up, followed by the USAC Midget 25-lap feature. At 9:15 a.m., the USAC Sprint race gets underway, with a 20-minute IRL practice session coming at 10:00 a.m. The inaugural Firestone Indy 225 takes the green flag at 1:00 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ABC. Rounding out the day is the USAC Weld Racing Silver Crown Series 100-lap feature.

Tickets for the 2002 racing season at Nazareth Speedway are now available. For tickets, reserved camping, and additional information, please contact the Nazareth Speedway ticket office at 1-888-629-RACE or order online at www.nazarethspeedway.com.
