Only three weeks remain before USAC’s AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series kicks off the 2012 racing season at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla.
Race fans attending the openers February 9-10-11 at the 3/8-mile dirt oval will be able to attend a special practice session on Wednesday night, February 8, then proceed to Ker’s famed WingHouse Bar & Grill, located at 2145 E. Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala for a pre-race party. USAC Members will receive a 20% discount on all food and beverage purchases!
Founded by Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos alumni Crawford Ker, the WingHouse has expanded to 19 locations throughout the Sunshine State and feature award winning sauces, sandwich specialties and full-service bars, plus state-of-the-art TV packages for all the major sports events. The WingHouse Girls are legendary and excellent ambassadors for the restaurant, helping create quality and memorable experiences for every guest.
“Bubba’s Winter Dirt Games” encompasses three consecutive nights of pulsating Sprint racing at one of America’s most exciting dirt tracks. Last year Damion Gardner raced to a pair of victories, while Bryan Clauson earned the first victory of what would become his second USAC National Drivers Championship season. Both drivers are expected to return for the February 9-10-11 races.
Other top drivers expected to compete in the 2012 openers include defending 5-time AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Champion Levi Jones, 2002 series Champion Tracy Hines, Indiana Sprint Week Champion Chris Windom, two-time Indiana Sprint Week Champion Jon Stanbrough, three-time USAC Silver Crown Champion Bud Kaeding, 14-time Sprint race winner Bobby East, and 2011 “Rookie of the Year” Coleman Gulick,
