STILLWATER, Minn. — Entering their third year of providing sprint car racing action, the Upper Midwest Sprintcar Series has put together a 26 race schedule for the winged sprint car division.
“This is the largest and most diverse schedule we have had so far with several special events featuring strong purses,” said UMSS CDO Ron Bernhagen. “Many sprint car teams and fans are making plans and looking forward to attending our shows. The 2011 season should have plenty of variety, as we are expanding to four new tracks for the UMSS and a total of 10 different tracks.”
Beginning and ending at the Elko (Minn.) Speedway, the 2011 UMSS schedule is filled with great venues. The series expands out to the north at Hibbing (Minn.) Raceway and to the south at Chateau Speedway in Lansing, Minn.
Traditional tracks like North Central Speedway in Brainerd, Minn., Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., and Kopellah Speedway in St. Croix Falls, Wis., will see the UMSS for the third season while tracks like Rice Lake (Wis.) Speedway, Elko Speedway and Ogilvie (Minn.) Raceway have expanded their 2010 involvement to include more race nights in 2011.
In addition to Hibbing and Chateau, Princeton (Minn.) Speedway and Dodge County Speedway in Kasson, Minn., join the UMSS 2011 racing schedule.
The season is scheduled to get underway April 15-16 with two complete shows at Elko Speedway. For more information on the series, visit www.umsprints.com.
