The 2011 AMSOIL USAC National Sprint car series opens in Florida and concludes in California. At those events and in between, race fans will witness some of the greatest dirt-track action in America.

This year’s National series will mark the first time since 1987 that all events will be conducted on dirt surfaces, with pavement events separated into their own championship series for 2011.

Ocala (Fla.) Speedway hosts the “Bubba Army Sprint Nationals” openers February 17-18-19 on the three nights prior to Sunday’s running of the Daytona 500. The “Budweiser Oval Nationals” at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway currently occupy the season-ending slate November 3-4-5.

Highlights of the 2011 campaign include the “Eastern Storm” races May 30 through June 4 and “Indiana Sprint Week” events July 8 through 16, plus a number of other “tradition-rich” events.

The Midwestern slate debuts with back-to-back races at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio April 8-9, while new venues are also part of the 2011 scheduling.

Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. joins the “Eastern Storm” for the first time with a May 30 opener, while Dodge City (Kansas) Raceway Park hosts its inaugural USAC Sprint races August 12-13.

The “Tony Hulman Classic” at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track is May 26, while Iowa tracks at Knoxville and Oskaloosa again host races August 7 and 9. The annual “4-Crown Nationals” is September 24 at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.
