Brownstown, IN- July 11th, 2010- Officials at Brownstown Speedway are gearing up for one of the biggest events in the history of the speedway, as the USAC Amsoil National Sprint Cars roll into town on Thursday night July 15th. It will mark the first time that Brownstown Speedway will host a leg of the ultra popular USAC Indiana Sprint Week presented by Arizona Sport Shirts/Gotta Race. Fans from all over the United States and even from out of the country will converge on the famed 1/4 mile located at the Jackson County Fairgrounds to enjoy the action of the USAC Amsoil National Sprint Cars and the MMSA Mini Sprints. Drivers such as Levi Jones, “The Peoples Champ” Dave Darland, “The Bullet” Bryan Clauson, Tracy Hines, “The Modern Day Cowboy” Daron Clayton, Jerry Coons, Jr., and countless others will be on hand to vie for the $5,000 first prize. The “Winged Warriors” of the MMSA Mini Sprints will provide companion action to make it an all open wheel evening, as they compete in a $1,000 to win feature event.

USAC Indiana Sprint Week is a week long affair throughout the state of Indiana, providing dirt track motorsports entertainment at different tracks.

On Sunday night July 11th, Kokomo Speedway held round three, with Levi Jones taking the lead on a lap 19 restart en route to picking up the win.
