LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. – With a 100-percent chance of rain forecasted for this weekend, USAC and Lawrenceburg Speedway officials have decided to postpone this Saturday’s USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series Midwest season opener to Saturday, April 20.
Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts with the original reschedule date of May 4, the race was moved back into the month of April.
Times and ticket prices will remain the same for the rescheduled event. Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. (Eastern) with front gates opening at 5 p.m. and hot laps getting underway at 6 p.m. Adult tickets are $25, kids 7-12 are $7, while children age 6 and under are free. Pit passes are $30 (all ages).
The series will make three visits to the southeastern Indiana three-eighths-mile dirt oval this season in addition to the May 4 date, making stops on July 21 for Indiana Sprint Week and on Oct. 5 for the Fall Nationals. Additionally, the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets will make a stop at Lawrenceburg on June 8 for Indiana Midget Week.
The next events on the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car calendar are included in a doubleheader weekend. The series travels to Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway on April 12 for the Larry Rice Classic, then to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. on April 13.
