TULSA, Okla. (August 16, 2017) Down to the final four rounds of competition for the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region in 2017, two of those battles will be held this weekend with Heart O' Texas Speedway in Waco in action on Friday, August 18 followed by South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi on Saturday, August 19.
Seeing a single night of racing with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region in 2017, Heart O' Texas Speedway was won over by Michael Lang on May 5. Washed out on June 2, Friday's showing at the quarter-mile oval is slated to be the series 33rd visit. The Friday night affair will also include IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, IMCA Southern Sport-Mods, IMCA Hobby Stocks and Factory Stocks with Hot Laps getting underway at 7:30 P.M. (CDT).
More information on the Heart O' Texas Speedway can be found online at http://www.heartotexasspeedway.com or by calling (254) 829-2294
Returning to the lineup for the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region for the first time since 2013, South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi is a quarter-mile banked oval that first opened in 1994. Having hosted ASCS events as far back as 1998 with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on hand, the series last visit in 2013 was topped by Aaron Reutzel.
Saturday, August 19 at South Texas Speedway goes green at 8:00 P.M. (CDT) and includes Southern Sport-Mds, Put Stocks, E-Mods, and Go Karts. Information on the track can be found at http://www.raceincorpus.com as well as the track's Facebook page.

ASCS Frontier Region Making Sweetwater Debut This Weekend

TULSA, Okla. (August 16, 2017) With only a hand full of races remaining on the schedule for the Brodix Frontier Region of the American Sprint Car Series, the tour next makes its debut at Sweetwater Speedway in Rock Springs, Wy. on Friday, August 18 and Saturday, August 19.
In pursuit of his first ASCS Regional title, Montana's David Hoiness holds a 100-point lead over Rich Martin. Coming off a win the other week at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. it was the first of the year for Hoiness. Already having held the points lead before his win, Hoiness has been consistent all season, finishing in the Top 10 in every event but one this season.
Martin, out of Cheyenne, Wy, is solidly second in the points but is still looking for his first win of the season despite four top-five finishes.
One local driver who will race with the ASCS Frontier Region for the first time and is getting a lot of publicity is Zac Taylor, who has limited experience in ASCS. Taylor has been splitting time between a midget and a 305cid Sprint Car this season and has four wins to his credit and sits third in the Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association points standings and is currently the points leader in the IMCA Colorado RaceSaver Series.
Taylor made his debut in an ASCS style Sprint Car last year in an unsanctioned event at Sweetwater Speedway with a win. He figures to be a factor in this weekend's ASCS Frontier Region events on his home race track. Taylor will compete Utilizing an engine leased to him by former racer Mark Sweet, who has been a long time ASCS Frontier Region participant as both a driver and an owner, having fielded a car for Damon McCune over the past two seasons.
While the Frontier Region is racing at Sweetwater Speedway for the first time, the track has hosted other ASCS regional tours in the past. Taylor has also done his part to promote ASCS's return to Sweetwater Speedway, recently having his car on display at the Sweetwater County Fair and again this Thursday at the Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce.
Quietly having a great season is Mindy McCord, who is sitting third in the standings with four Top 10 finishes. The 23-year-old lady racer has been getting faster over the course of the season and recently led main event laps at Black Hills Speedway in South Dakota. Robert DeHaan sits fourth with Clint Anderson moving into fifth place following a top-five finish at Gallatin Speedway.
IMCA Modifieds, Sport-Mods, Stocks, and Go-Karts round out this weekend's ticket.
Admission each night is $20 for adults, $10 for seniors age 60 and older and children between the ages of 7 and 12. Kids ages 6 and under are free. Family passes are also available. The track's website is http://www.sweetwaterspeedway.com. The track is located at 3320 Yellowstone Road in Rock Springs. Racing is scheduled to begin at 7:00 P.M. both days.
More information on the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region, Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by MAVTV Motorsports Network and other ASCS regional tours, including schedules and results, can be found online at ascsracing.com. You can also find the series on Facebook.

ASCS Frontier and NSA Series Joining Together For Events At BMP Speedway and Electric City Speedway

TULSA, Okla. (August 16, 2017) Sometimes, all it takes is a face-to-face meeting to settle the differences that can keep a people divided, and that's what happened this past weekend as Dan Mann with Electric City Speedway and Mike Quigley with BMP Speedway and the NSA Series sat down with Emmett Hahn to end a rift that has split teams and tracks in Montana for nearly two years.
"We are looking forward to it. We're excited to see the reunion," said Electric City Speedway owner, Dan Mann "It's good to have peace in the valley."
Through the meeting, the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region will work hand in hand with the NSA Series at Electric City Speedway's three night Montana Roundup, happening September 1-3, 2017 as well as BMP Speedway's Dan Laber Memorial on September 15-16, 2017.
"I'm just happy to get all the teams back together and let everyone know they are all welcome. We want to keep Sprint Car racing strong in Montana and Canada and this was the biggest thing we needed to get done to make that happen," commented NSA Series Director, Mike Quigley.
A tradition of Montana Sprint Car racing for the past 23 years, the Montana Roundup at Electric City Speedway will be three complete shows with each night paying $1,500 to win, $300 to start and will also provide a point fund for the top-three drivers with the best overall average finish.
Entering its 15th year, the Dan Laber Memorial at Billings Motorsports Park takes place on Friday, September 15 and Saturday, September 16 and will be run as two complete shows paying $2,000 to win, $300 to start each night.
Asked about the joint venture between ASCS and the NSA Series, Emmett Hahn stated, "This is a deal where we are able to build Sprint Car racing in Montana, but also give teams the option to race in Canada for good money. This deal is going to be setup where we aren't stepping on each other so if a guy wanted to, he could race for two championships in a single season."
