ATLANTA – The United Speed Contest Sanction (USCS) invades Magnolia Motor Speedway for the seventh year in a row for the track’s and sanctioning body’s season opener Feb. 27-28 for the seventh annual Frost Buster 250 presented by Carl Hogan Toyota with a USCS winged Outlaw sprint car, USCS Outlaw Modified and USCS 600 Sprint Car Series winged mini sprint triple-header.
The season-opener features two full nights of high speed action at one of the Mid-South’s most popular venues.
Race fans and the race teams will be treated to a full menu of early season speed contests with racing in eight of the area’s most popular divisions. The event includes one of only two scheduled 2015 season appearances of the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters winged sprint cars and the K&N Filters USCS Outlaw Modified Series at Magnolia Motor Speedway. The racing action will feature over 400 laps of racing around the 3/8 mile clay oval including 250 laps of Championship main events.
Action kicks off on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. with a full racing program in six divisions including the 130 mph USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour winged sprint cars. The world’s most powerful short track cars (Outlaw Sprint Cars) are expected to reach speeds exceeding 130 M.P.H. around “The Mag.” Top winged sprint car drivers from at least 7 states are expected for the first 2015 appearance of the USCS sprint cars to Magnolia Motor Speedway. They will be joined by the mighty K&N Filters USCS Outlaw Modified Series, Nesmith Dirt Late Model, www.RockAuto.com USCS 600 Sprint Car Series mini sprint, Street Stock and Mini Stock divisions on Friday’s racing card.
The Magnolia Motor Speedway season-opener turns up the tempo on Saturday night with the addition of the 800 horsepower ground-pounding Super Late Models. The racing divisions featured in back-to-back nights in the cavalcade of racing include the United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters winged sprint cars, the mighty K&N Filters USCS Modified Series, Super Late Models (Saturday), Nesmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Models, plus the popular Magnolia Motor Speedway weekly racing series Street Stocks and Factory Stocks. Also on the racing card will be the Mini Stock racing division in their only scheduled appearance at “The Mag” in 2015.
Two NASCAR veteran racers and TV commentators, Ken Schrader and Fox Sports 1 and Fox TV commentator Kenny Wallace are both again entered to compete in the K&N Filters USCS Outlaw Modified Series portion of the event on both Friday and Saturday nights. The appearance by the two drivers will be a re-match of sorts as Schrader captured the win in last year’s event after besting a 40 car USCS Outlaw Modified field. Kenny Wallace finished behind him in the runner-up spot. It will only be Schrader’s third-ever appearance at the track in an Outlaw Modified race car.
Schrader was the 2012 as well as the 2014 Frost Buster 250 USCS Modified event Champion.
The third USCS racing division on the action-packed racing card is the www.rockauto.com USCS 600 Sprint Car Series winged mini sprints, which also race a complete format on both nights.
