MESQUITE, Texas (March 18, 2021) Finally getting the 2021 season rolling, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will kick things off with a double shot weekend at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway with the 48th running of the Devil’s Bowl Spring Nationals on Friday, March 19, and Saturday, March 20.
Both nights open at 6:00 P.M. with racing on track at 8:00 P.M. (CDT). Admission per night is $25, with Senior and Military, admitted for $12. Kids 12 and under are free into the grandstands.
Looking into the Spring Nationals, the weekend is set to be races No. 99 and 100 for the National Tour at the famed Texas half-mile. The showdown also represents a milestone for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, with the tour eclipsing event No. 1,000 since 1993. Races in 1992 are not applied to the count as they were a series of regional shows to decide a National Champion.
In the tour’s last visit to the Devil’s Bowl Speedway during the 2020 Winter Nationals, the weekend was split between Sam Hafertepe, Jr. with his seventh win and Roger Crockett scoring his third. Over the course of 98 A-Features contested, 33 drivers have parked in Victory Lane, with 19 winning two or more times. Gary Wright continues to lead the overall win total at the Devil’s Bowl with 20.
The Devil’s Bowl Spring Nationals is also the kick-off to the ASCS Lone Star Region.
