USAC Silver Crown Series

From Dick Jordan

The United States Auto Club has announced several schedule modifications to the 2010 Silver Crown Championship slate, including the addition of the “Rollie Beale 150” at the Toledo (Ohio) Speedway October 16 and the rescheduling of the rain-postponed “Sumar Classic 100” at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track, now scheduled for October 9. Along with these announced schedule additions, the Oswego, N.Y. race originally scheduled August 4 has been cancelled.

“We are pleased to announce the series’ debut at Toledo, which has been an exciting racing venue for our pavement sprints and midgets for many years and the new date for the “Sumar Classic 100,” added Jason Smith. Senior Vice President of USAC Racing. The return of the “Sumar Classic” to Terre Haute continues a tradition begun in 1995 while the Toledo race builds on USAC’s heritage at the Ohio oval while inaugurating a brand-new Silver Crown tradition on the popular season-ending date at the Speedway.”

Beale won the USAC National Sprint Car Championship in 1973 and recorded 32 feature victories during his USAC career. In addition, he competed in numerous USAC Silver Crown races and served for several years as USAC’s Silver Crown and Sprint Car Chief Steward.

The USAC Silver Crown Championship Series now turns its focus to the August 12 race at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Mich., another race new to the USAC schedule in 2010.
