Fans can get far more than their money’s worth with action starting at 2:30 on Thursday afternoon when the ASA Late Model Challenge series takes to the historic one-mile oval for their practice and qualifying sessions.
Friday’s racing starts with a 9:00 green flag for the UARA Stars practice, with USAR Pro Cup practice coming as soon as the track is cleared following that session. With two more practice sessions before lunch, then UARA qualifying begins at 1:30, followed an hour later by the Pro Cup time trials. Then at 4:30 Friday afternoon, the ASA Late Model Challenge competitors stream under the green flag to start their 100 lap feature.
Saturday’s races start at 11:00 when racers wheel their UARA Late Models onto the track for a 75-lap dash. Then at 1:00, USAR Pro Cup’s star athletes bring their unequalled brand of excitement out for 200 laps of some of the best stock car racing ever.
“The combination of these three series will be a great show for the fans,” said the track’s Andy Hillenburg. “A lot of current stars in other series get their starts in ASA, UARA and Pro Cup racing, so this is a great opportunity to see some future greats in action at a great race track.”
Advance tickets are only $20 for the weekend, and fans can buy suite tickets for the low price of $75.
