From Pete Walton

ATLANTA, Ga. (November 7, 2016) $7.000 is up for grabs when the United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters invades the historic Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas on Friday and Saturday, November 11th and 12th for the 8th annual “Flip Flop 50” Sprint Car Shootout when K&N Filters presents the $60,000 USCS Fall Nationals 2016. The two-day racing event serves as the 2016 season finale for the 20th Anniversary USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour. The unique fan favorite “Flip Flop 50” racing format is a United Sprint Car Series original that is sometimes imitated, but, never duplicated. The unique format features twin 25-lap main events with the first starting straight-up and the second starting fully inverted from the finish of the first.

The USCS presented by K&N Filters winged sprint car racing format on Friday night at 7:30 pm features a racing program that includes the Hoosier Tire Speed Dash for the top six cars from the previous main event followed by the sprint car qualifying heat races. The top eight qualified drivers via passing points then compete in the 15-lap K&N Filters Pole Scramble event. The K&N Filters Pole Scramble finishing order will determine the line-up for the front four rows of the first of Saturday’s USCS “Flip Flop 50” 25-lap main events. The first main event starts straight-up and the second one fully inverted from the finish of the first one.

On Saturday evening at 6:00 pm the USCS winged sprint cars will contest a series of B-Main/Last Chance races that determine the final line-ups for the first of the two 25-lap main events. The first main event will start the field straight-up from their final qualifying order and pays $3000 to win plus lap leader money. The second 25-lap main event will start with the field inverted from the finish of the first main event. The winner of the first race will start in 22nd position. That race will pay $2000 to win. A bonus of $1000 (ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS) to any driver who can win both races after winning the first sprint car main event and starting last in the second event.

Joining the winged sprint cars for the United Speed Contest Sanction (USCS) $60,000+ season finale will be the popular 600+horsepower K&N Filters USCS Outlaw Modifieds racing for $1200 to win each night. The schedule also includes the www.rockauto.com USCS 600 Sprint Car Series for winged 600 mini sprints who have a shot at nearly $2000 in top prize money over the two nights. Additionally, the USCS Crate Late Models qualify on Friday night and compete for 1500 in their final on Saturday evening. A top prize of $1200 in cash plus merchandise is offered for the Mid-South Street Stock Challenge division that also runs its qualifying heats on Friday night and last chance race(s) and 25-lap final on Saturday evening. Fans can expect two nights of wide-open racing to complete the USCS series’ 2016 visits to the historic speedway during their 67th anniversary season.
