SPEEDWAY, Ind. – Defending USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion C.J. Leary is returning to his family-owned sprint car operation when the season resumes on June 6 at Iowa’s 34 Raceway.

Leary, who claimed his first USAC championship last year while driving for Reinbold-Underwood Motorsports, joined Gene Gile Racing this year in an effort to defend his series championship.

However, Leary has confirmed that he and Gene Gile Racing have parted ways and he will be back in his own No. 30 starting June 6 when the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series season resumes.

Leary has retained the services of 2019 USAC Chief Mechanic of the Year Davey Jones, who will serve as crew chief on the No. 30 entry.

In two races aboard the Gene Gile Racing entry at Florida’s Bubba Raceway Park in February, Leary was the Fatheadz Eyewear fast qualifier on the second night of the season and brought home finishes of third and seventh.

Leary is the owner of nine USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series victories during his career, six of which came when he was driving his own No. 30.

The USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series will get back underway with a pair of events, starting on June 6 at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. The series will then travel to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., on June 7.
