"DOUBLE FEATURES" ON TAP FOR GRANDVIEW FANS IN 2009;
EASTERN SPRINTS SUCCESSFUL DESPITE WEATHER
The recent USAC National Sprint Car Eastern Swing which
concluded June 7 offered race fans in Pennsylvania and Maryland unique
opportunities to watch the nation's finest "traditional" Sprint drivers
in action on some of America's most challenging speedways.
Despite intermittent showers, which forced the cancellation of
USAC's appearance at the Williams Grove Speedway and the feature event
at Grandview Speedway, some great competition unfolded, leading to the
two youngest feature winners in USAC Sprint Car history! Drivers Cole
Whitt and Chad Boat earned triumphs at the age of 16!
Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pa. witnessed some great
prelims before mother nature intervened and washed out the feature. As a
tribute to loyal Grandview Speedway fans, USAC will conduct "Twin 20-lap
Features" at Grandview in 2009 and give fans opportunities to interact
with USAC drivers.
USAC is deeply indebted to its Eastern race organizers, Bruce
Rogers and Bob Miller at Grandview Speedway, Justin Loh at Williams
Grove Speedway, Buddy Biever at Big Diamond Raceway and Frank Plessinger
at Hagerstown Speedway, for showcasing the USAC National Sprint Car
Series in the East, which has always been a bastion of Sprint car
USAC looks forward to its return to the East in 2009 and to
again presenting the finest in "traditional" Sprint car entertainment
for its valued fans.
