Atlanta, GA – October 21, 2011 – $10,000 is up for grabs when the United Sprint Car Series presented by Goodyear invades legendary Riverside Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas on Friday and Saturday, November 4th and 5th for the 3rd annual “Flip Flop 50” sprint car spectacular when Goodyear presents the USCS Fall Nationals 2011. The two-day event serves as the 2011 season finale for the 15th Anniversary USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour. The fan favorite “Flip Flop 50” format features twin 25-lap main events with the first starting straight-up and the second starting fully inverted for a $5000 with the winner of the first one starting last in the second main racing bonus to win the second one as well.

The USCS presented by Goodyear winged sprint car racing format on Friday night features a racing program that includes the Goodyear Speed Dash for the top six cars from the previous main event followed by the sprint car qualifying heat races. The top qualified drivers then compete for the top starting spots in the K&N Filters Pole Scramble event that will determine the line-up for the front four rows of Saturday night’s USCS “Flip Flop 50” (twin 25-lap main events. The first main event starts straight-up and the second one fully inverted).

On Saturday evening the winged USCS sprint cars will contest a series of B-Main/Last Chance races that determine the final line-ups for the first of two 25-lap main events. The first main event will start the field straight-up from their final qualifying order and pays $2500 to win. The second 25-lap main event will start with the field fully inverted from the finish of the first main event. The winner of the first race will start in 22nd position. That race also pays $2500 to win with a bonus of $5000 to any driver who can win both races after starting last in the second event.

Joining the winged sprint cars for the speedway’s $50,000 season finale will be the popular 600+ horsepower K&N Filters USCS Outlaw Modifieds. The schedule also includes the new USCS 600 Sprint Car Series for Winged 600cc Mini Sprints. Additionally the Limited/Crate Late Models and Riverside Stock Cars/Street Stocks divisions along each of those three USCS divisions will contest two nights of wide-open racing to celebrate the completion of the historic speedway’s 62nd anniversary season.
