USAC Non-Wing 410 Sprints, Badger Midgets, Micros & Legends this Sunday, June 22nd! After a visit in 2012 won by the legendary Dave Darland, USAC’s AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship will make a fourth visit to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin on Sunday, June 22nd to wrap up a key three-race Upper Midwest swing.

Sunday’s visit to “The Prairie” follows previous USAC Sprint Car features won by Jack Hewitt, J.J. Yeley and Darland. A weekend started at AMSOIL Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin and Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota will end with a fan-friendly doubleheader that includes BMARA Midgets on the card Sunday.

Brady Bacon, seeking his first USAC championship, leads the tour into the weekend aboard the famed Hoffman Auto Racing #69, fresh off their record 84th series victory as a team on June 7th at Port Royal Speedway in Pennsylvania. Bacon leads the standings on the strength of two wins and an incredible seven fast times.

“The People’s Champ” Dave Darland sits second in points and leads the league in wins, with victories coming at Eldora Speedway in Ohio, Terre Haute Action Track in Indiana, and the Eagle Raceway in Nebraska. Darland led wire-to-wire in 2012 at Angell Park and brings the Phillips Motorsports #71P to Wisconsin this time around, looking to track down Badger State native Tom Bigelow for the all-time sprint car win record, as he sits just two behind.

Chase Stockon picked up his first win of the season on June 3rd at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania and is the only driver yet to finish outside the top-ten in 12 contested feature events. He is third in points aboard the 32/TBI Racing #32.

Two-time and defending National champion Bryan Clauson has slipped to fourth in points, although he picked up his second win of the season on June 5th at New Egypt Speedway in New Jersey aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #20. The recently turned 25-year old tacked on a midget win to complete “Indiana Midget Week” and reach 60 career USAC National wins across all three divisions.

Jon Stanbrough has climbed into the top-five in points but is still seeking his first USAC Sprint Car win in the Michael Dutcher Motorsports #37. The Avon, Indiana veteran will break into the top-ten in all-time Sprint Car wins with his next score, and he was a winner in Wisconsin just two years ago with the series’ latest visit to Wilmot.

Tracy Hines is also in pursuit of the all-time Sprint Car win record, as he tied Jack Hewitt this year with 46 career wins, just six behind Bigelow. Hines brings his Tracy Hines Racing #4 to the Upper Midwest as the current Silver Crown Series point leader.

After a year spent getting back on track after a broken neck suffered late in 2012, Justin Grant returned to victory lane this season in the Mark Hery Racing #40 and sits 7th in points. Hunter Schuerenberg also broke a long dry spell, winning at McCool Junction, Nebraska in May to notch the first win for the Schuerenberg/Nolen Racing #20N.

Chris Windom is seeking his first win with the series since last year’s “Four Crown Nationals” at Eldora Speedway, where the 2013 Silver Crown Series “Rookie of the Year” won both the Sprint Car and Silver Crown features. Windom drives the Jeff Walker Racing #11, which was victorious at Angell Park in 2012 with Darland driving.

2012 Series “Rookie of the Year” C.J. Leary nearly won his first-ever National event at New Egypt before being passed by Clauson on the final lap. The youngster from Greenfield, Indiana rounds out the top-ten in points. Just behind him is the battle for 2014 “Rookie of the Year” between Jarett Andretti and Shane Cockrum. Andretti, the son of John, logged his best finish on the tour at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana, while Cockrum has finished in the top-ten twice, including in the most recent race at Port Royal.

Front gates open at 4:30pm on Sunday, June 22nd. General Admission is $20.00 student’s ages 12-18 is $15.00, children 12 & under FREE.
