USAC Sprint cars invade AMSOIL Speedway

Superior Telegram

The AMSOIL USAC National Championship Sprint Car Series will be in action tonight for the first time ever at the AMSOIL Speedway.

The Series will then move to Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond on Saturday then to Angell Park in Sun Prairie on Sunday.

This will be the USAC Sprint Car Series’ only visit to the state of Wisconsin in 2015 and the first time they visited Superior. Last year’s event in Superior was weathered out.

Robert Ballou remains atop the standings with a 40-point margin over Chase Stockon, but Dave Darland is just 82 back of the leader in third place.

Ballou leads with seven feature wins this season, while Stockon has a single win and Darland has a pair. Darland continues to seek his 100th USAC National triumph which would put him in select company. Only A.J. Foyt, Rich Vogler and Mel Kenyon have previously reached the century mark in USAC’s 60-year history.

Jon Stanbrough, currently fifth in the series points, was victorious in the series’ only visit to Angell Park in 2014.

The United States Auto Club is a national touring series that has had Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, Mario Andretti, and A.J. Foyt, just to name a few, as former champions.

Also in action will be the WISSOA Super Stocks and Pure Stocks.

Gates open at 4 p.m. and hot laps begin at 6:30 p.m.
