Mid-Week ASCS National Shows On Tap


TULSA, Okla. – The Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series is set to invade Missouri and Nebraska for a pair of mid-week shows.

Pairing with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region Wednesday, the National tour will visit Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo., for the first time. It becomes the 121st track to host the series since 1992.

A signature facility in the Missouri racing scene, the high banked third-mile clay oval has been the proving grounds to some of the nation’s top drivers including Warrior Region regular and hometown favorite Brian Brown as well as current Lucas Oil ASCS rookie contender Brad Loyet, who took Warrior Region rookie and championship honors in 2011.

The Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series will then I-80 Speedway, located just outside the village of Greenwood, Neb., for a single night event with the Speedway Motors ASCS Midwest Region Thursday.

Previously known as Nebraska Raceway Park, National tour has graced the four-tenths-mile oval a half-dozen times with a different winner on all six occasions.

After rains postponed I-30 Speedway events into the month of June, points for the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series remain unchanged, with Wayne Johnson atop the leader board.

Jason Johnson sits only 30 markers behind with Brady Bacon sitting third. Johnny Herrera sits only three points out of the top three with Gary Wright rounding out the top five.

After early season woes Brad Loyet has fought back to sixth in the national standings with Tony Bruce, Jr. seventh, Danny Wood eighth, and Seth Bergman ninth and Dustin Morgan tenth.
