USAC Western Midget Car Series expansion reveals 27 preliminary dates in 2004!

Expansion of the USAC Western Midget Car Series in 2004 has revealed 27 preliminary dates, with additional races in the negotiation stage. This is in contrast to the 15 which comprised the 2003 calendar.

Opening with the "Copper World Classic" at Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway March 18-21 and concluding November 25 with the "Turkey Night Grand Prix" at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway, the schedule includes races in six states involving 11 different speedways.

Western sanctioning will return to the traditional races at Lincoln, Neb. and Belleville, Kans. in late-July and Ventura (Calif.) Raceway, which suffered a rainout of its only scheduled 2003 USAC race, returns to the schedule for five races in April, June, July, September and October.

Other tracks involved in the preliminary schedule released today are California's Madera Speedway, Perris Auto Speedway, Kings Speedway (Hanford) and Bakersfield Speedway, Arizona's Tucson Raceway Park and Pikes Peak International Raceway in Colorado, which hosts the National and Western Midget Cars Independence Day weekend.
