ROSSBURG, Ohio – Each night of USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car racing at Eldora Speedway on May 7-8 will now pay $10,000-to-win at the famed half-mile dirt oval in western Ohio.
#LetsRaceTwo is the latest of several USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car events to feature raised purses. February’s Winter Dirt Games finale at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla. was to pay $10,000-to-win before it was washed out by rain. Four $6,000-to-win events were added to the schedule and contested during the recent Keystone Invasion of Pennsylvania.
Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway’s third annual Corn Belt Clash on July 10 will pay $20,000-to-win, and $20,000 more will be up for grabs during the Sept. 10-12 Huset’s Speedway USAC Nationals in Brandon, South Dakota. The final night of Sprint Car Smackdown X on Aug. 28 at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway will serve $15,000-to-win. Furthermore, the Sept. 18 Haubstadt Hustler at Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway has upped its winner’s share to $12,000.
Two-hundred-one previous USAC National Sprint Car points races have been held at Eldora Speedway since 1962, making it the most frequented track in the history of the series.
