TULSA, Okla. — Formerly known as the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series, the San Tan Ford Desert Sprint Car Series will run under the American Sprint Car Series banner this season.

The second non-winged sprint car tour to join the American Sprint Car Series in 2019, the San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Sprint Car Series joins the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating with 17 dates spread among four Arizona dirt tracks.

Just like the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series, the series rules for the San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Sprint Car Series will not change.

The move to ASCS sanction provides drivers with the option for ASCS Membership and access to the insurance provided as well as added exposure and the addition of a $7,500-point fund. The point fund provided by the American Sprint Car Series is in addition to efforts already in place with the series.

While the announcement comes just before this weekend’s kickoff to the 2019 season on Saturday, February 2 at Central Arizona Speedway, the reason for the delay on finalizing the schedule was to make sure that USA Raceway in Tucson would be in play.
