INDIANAPOLIS – The USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series schedule is highlighted by not one, but two trips to the East Coast this season.

The tour’s first eastbound sojourn comes in April, followed by the 14th edition of Eastern Storm in June.

A foray to Pennsylvania from April 22-25 is new to the calendar, and will have a new name for the four-race weekend within the confines of the Keystone State.

The Keystone Invasion will see the series visit Bechtelsville’s Grandview Speedway on April 22, Pottsville’s Big Diamond Speedway on April 23, York Haven’s BAPS Motor Speedway on April 24, and Spring Run’s Path Valley Speedway Park on April 25.

The third-mile Grandview Speedway has long been a staple of USAC’s National Sprint Car Series trips to the east, regularly appearing on the schedule since 2007.

This year, however, will mark the first year for the series to make multiple trips to Grandview, which will also host the series on June 15 as the opener for Eastern Storm.

Big Diamond’s three-eighths-mile surface most recently appeared on the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series slate nearly a decade ago in 2012.

The four-tenths-mile BAPS Motor Speedway has previously been the venue for five USAC National Sprint Car Series events between the years of 2013 and ’18.

Path Valley has welcomed the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series three times, and was on the USAC National Sprint Car Series docket in 2013 before being rained out.

This year’s event will mark the series’ debut at the high banked, quarter-mile.
