New Look For USAC Brandt River Town Showdown


INDIANAPOLIS – The upcoming two-night Brandt River Town Showdown will have a different look on May 17-18.

Consecutive nights of USAC action featuring the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series ad USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship will now take place at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill.,

Due to the extreme flooding in the areas surrounding Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., Saturday’s portion of the event has been shifted to the three-eighths-mile dirt oval in Granite City. Tri-City was already scheduled to host both tours on May 17.

“This is an event that we have really been looking forward to,” said Track Enterprises Promoter Bob Sargent. “Unfortunately, flooding at Federated Auto Parts Raceway won’t allow that event to happen so we will double the fun at Tri-City.”

Both nights of racing in Granite City will feature USAC’s National Sprint and Midget divisions as well as B-Mods.  Pits open at 3 p.m. Central, with grandstands opening at 5 p.m. and cars on track at 6:30 p.m.  General admission tickets are $25 for adults and free for kids 12 and under. Pit passes are $30 apiece for members and $35 for non-members.
