KUTZTOWN, Pa. – While the racing schedule is dotted with special events for the USAC All Pro SpeedSTRs and Slingshots, the Hyper Racing 600 Sprints have certainly not been forgotten as plans take shape for the new season at Championship Energy Action Track USA on the Kutztown Fairgrounds.
The non-wing 600 sprints will once again be a weekly attraction at the Berks County oval and Memorial Day Monday, May 27, is their first big money show of the campaign. The King of No Wing Shootout will highlight the holiday program, and it will also serve as a qualifier for Wednesday, July 31, when the 600’s join the USAC P1 Insurance National Midget Championship series for a doubleheader.
The winner of the King of No Wing Shootout will be a guaranteed starter in the 600 Sprint headliner on July 31, in an event that marks the very first appearance by the USAC National Midgets at Action Track USA.
On Wednesday, June 19, the 600cc wheel-twisters will not have to worry about points. They will, however, need to bolt a wing on top of their roll cages as Action Track USA on the Kutztown Fairgrounds will host a winged 600 Sprint race.
The annual 60-lap, $2,000-to-win Kutztown Fair Nationals for the 600 Sprints will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 14 and Championship Night is slated for Sunday, Aug. 18.
One new twist for the 600’s is the fact that all events (except for the Fair Nationals) will have a maximum $20 registration fee.
