CAMARGO, Ill. — The University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars will entertain fans in 10 states over at least 45 events this season.
“Our regional concept has created a lot of excitement all over the Midwest. More drivers are participating in All Star events and that has brought a level of competition to tracks that has attracted more fans. This season will continue our mantra ‘you never know who will win’ when the UNOH All Stars come to town,” said Guy Webb, UNOH All Star CEO.
In 2012, the UNOH All Stars sanctioned 43 races with 22 different winners. Tim Shaffer scored his fourth consecutive national UNOH All Star championship and picked up six wins along the way. Three-time series champion Dale Blaney took the Ohio Region title for the series, winning a series’ best nine times to run his career total to 93, just five behind Kenny Jacobs for the most All Star wins.
Daryn Pittman scored the UNOH All Stars Eastern Region championship with three series wins in 2012.
The UNOH All Stars have 45 races on the 2013 schedule. Highlights include five visits to Attica Raceway Park to help celebrate the track’s 25th anniversary; six stops at Fremont Speedway as “The Track That Action Built” celebrates its 63rd season of racing; taking on the PA Posse at the historic Williams Grove Speedway, Port Royal Speedway and Lincoln Speedway; the 31st Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek which currently features eight nights of racing over nine days; and two stops at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway. There’s also the annual swing into New York and the Thunder Through the Plains.
The season kicks off tonight (Feb. 7) at Georgia’s Screven Motor Speedway.
