An action packed program awaits fans as the USCS presented by Goodyear sprint car racing format will include test and tune hot laps followed by the evening’s first sprint car race, the Goodyear Speed Dash that showcases the top six cars from the previous USCS main event in an edge-of-your-seat six-car shootout.
