Sarver, PA (January 26, 2011) After a five year hiatus, the legendary USAC Sprints are coming back to the historic Don Martin’s Lernerville Speedway on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30 for a $5,000-to-win wingless sprint shootout! Complimenting the wingless warriors on Memorial Day will be the Lernerville Speedway debut of the FASTRAK Northeast Regional Touring Series.
The series that helped launch the careers of Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman and Kasey Kahne will return to the 4/10 mile Action Track in Sarver, PA that helped launch the careers of Dave Blaney, Brad Doty, Tim Shaffer and Dale Blaney.
When the USAC Sprints last rocketed around the Action Track on May 5, 2006, Darren Hagen took the checkered flag in the 30-lapper over Jerry Coons Jr.
Tony Stewart Racing’s Levi Jones won the 2010 USAC Sprint Championship and should headline the 2011 tour. Damion Gardner and Bryan Clauson are expected to be the front runners to challenge Jones for the USAC Sprint Title.
