U.S. 36 Raceway On Deck For Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series
Bryan Hulbert – OSBORN, Mo. (April 20, 2021) - Making the first jaunt of the 2021 season into the “Show-Me State,” the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will go head-to-head with the Racinboys.com ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps at U.S. 36 Raceway on Friday, April 23.
Five previous events, just as many winners, have emerged. Gary Wright topped the inaugural visit on July 22, 2005. Absent from the steep banks until July 2, 2012, the victory went to the late Jason Johnson. Putting all by second place a lap down the following year, Johnny Herrera destroyed the field on May 17, 2013. Another run for the record books on April 26, 2019, Canada’s Thomas Kennedy flew past the leaders in traffic. Taking his 51st career National Tour victory on July 17, 2020, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. became the second Texan to win at the three-eighths-mile oval.
