UNITED SPRINT CAR SERIES
TO RUN ON HOOSIERS THROUGH 2006

1-20-04

USCS to run on Hoosiers beginning in 2004.LAKEVILLE, IN -- Pete Walton of the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) and Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. have agreed to team up for the 2004 season where, for the first time ever, a Hoosier tire-rule will be utilized in USCS competition. The Fayetteville, GA based series features 360cc winged outlaw style cars that compete on both dirt and asphalt surfaces that challenges the versatility of its drivers over the course of a 40-race season.   

The USCS venue and southern temperatures allow for a season that stretches from early February to November. As stated earlier, the series competes on both dirt and asphalt surfaces where points are awarded for the USCS National crown with drivers also being ranked based on their performance on each track surface under the USCS Dirt and USCS Asphalt standings.

In 2003, Terry Gray won the USCS National championship--the tenth of his career. The former original member of the World of Outlaws Series also won the USCS Dirt championship, while Kenny Adams won the USCS Asphalt title with Terry Gray finishing a close second.

Hoosier Open Wheel Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman commented on the USCS signing, "We are really looking forward to working with Pete (Walton) and the entire USCS organization." Cowman added, "We have been trying to work out a deal for the past couple of years and this year all the pieces fell into place partnering Hoosier and USCS through the 2006 season and we couldn't be more pleased."   

The deal will have a four-corner Hoosier tire-rule when the series competes on asphalt and a Hoosier-only rear drive tire-rule when the series competes on dirt. Competitors will be allowed to use last year's tires through the first four events of 2004 with the new Hoosier tire-rule being fully enacted for the fifth race of the season. The 2004 USCS season will begin in Barberville, Florida on February 3-4, at the 1/2-mile Volusia Speedway Park as part of Florida Speedweeks.
