KNOXVILLE, IOWA (October 24, 2011) – The ninth annual National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum-benefit raffle sprint car heads to the I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Arkansas, this weekend for the Short Track Nationals. The brand-new Eagle Motorsports sprinter with its 410-cubic-inch Don Ott Racing Engines powerplant will be on display at Tracey Clay’s bullring on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 27-28-29.

Said museum special events coordinator David Herrmann today, “Obviously the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) sanctioned Short Track Nationals is one of those ‘must-see’ events for winged 360-cubic-inch sprint car fans, border-to-border and coast-to-coast. We truly appreciate the hospitality shown us by National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee Emmett Hahn, multi-time North American 360 Sprint Car Poll ‘Promoter of the Year’ recipient Tracey Clay, and museum supporter and Little Rock trade show coordinator Darin Short. We look forward to meeting their great fans and letting them know how they can take a chance on winning this state-of-the-art sprint car and supporting their sport’s national museum.”
