ASCS Midwest Region 2010 Schedule is Released
Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (January 29, 2010) – Continuing to gain momentum as the new decade dawns, the American Sprint Car Series Midwest Region is gearing up for an ambitious 2010 slate of 23 events.
The fifth season of racing action in Nebraska and the surrounding areas currently consists of 23 nights of competition at nine different tracks.
Fourteen of the series’ scheduled events are in Cornhusker territory, with another half-dozen in Missouri and three in South Dakota.
The ASCS Midwest Region kicks off the 2010 season with the annual two-night stand versus the ASCS Northern Plains Region at Nebraska Raceway Park’s I-80 Speedway on April 9-10, the first of a handful of events in which the Midwest squares off with the Northern Plains.
Greenwood’s I-80 Speedway will host the ASCS Midwest Region for a total of seven nights in 2010, including the season-ending double on September 24-25.
Other Nebraska venues for the ASCS Midwest Region include Eagle Raceway, where the Midwest forces take on the Lucas Oil National Sprint Car Series on June 11-12 before returning for the Nebraska Cup on September 12.
The series will also take to McCool Junction’s Junction Motor Speedway on a pair of occasions, with single stop at Rising City’s Butler County Motorplex and Albion’s Boone County Raceway.
Boone County is one of three new stops for the ASCS Midwest Region in 2010, with the series also breaking new ground at a pair of Missouri dirt ovals including Warrensburg’s Central Missouri Speedway and Wheatland’s Lucas Oil Speedway.
Other Show Me State events include three stops atop the lightning-fast, high banks of Cameron’s U.S. 36 Raceway.
The series also ventures north to Hartford, South Dakota’s I-90 Speedway on three occasions, including a July 10 card in tandem with the Lucas Oil Sprint Car Series.
Nebraska’s Jason Danley became the first driver in ASCS history to capture two different Regional titles in the same year by topping both the ASCS Midwest and ASCS Northern Plains point charts in 2009.
In its 19th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing, the American Sprint Car Series brings the best of Sprint Car racing to approximately 100 different tracks throughout 30 states and Canada. Anchored by the Lucas Oil Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters, ASCS also consists of a dozen different Regions throughout the nation.
