TULSA, Okla. (April 6, 2011) – Noted as ‘America’s Oldest Speed Shop’, Speedway Motors has joined forces with the American Sprint Car Series as title sponsor of both the ASCS Midwest and ASCS Warrior Regions.
“We’re pleased to be partnered with Speedway Motors on a pair of our Regions,” commented ASCS president and founder Emmett Hahn. “So highly respected in the industry, Speedway is just a natural fit with the Midwest and Warrior Regions.”
Speedway Motors was founded in 1952 by “Speedy” Bill Smith, growing from a one-man operation to become the world’s largest manufacturer, distributor and retailer of street rod and racing products.
Speedway’s size offers customers unmatched product selection and low pricing, while its technical support and customer service have made it a recognized leader in the rodding and racing industries.
Both Speedway Motors ASCS Regional tours kick off their respective seasons this weekend, with the Speedway Motors ASCS Midwest Region taking to Greenwood, Nebraska’s I-80 Speedway for a pair of $3,000 to win events on Friday and Saturday and the ASCS Warrior Region at La Monte, Missouri’s LA Raceway on Saturday night.
The Speedway Motors ASCS Midwest Region is slated for 20 nights of competition at a half dozen tracks throughout Nebraska and the surrounding areas of Missouri, South Dakota and Iowa.
The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region is currently set for 15 nights of action at nine different tracks throughout Missouri and into neighboring portions of Illinois and Kansas.
The Midwest and Warrior Regions will cross paths on three occasions this season, with each showdown at Cameron, Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway.
