18 Nights For ASCS Warriors
TULSA, Okla. — The American Sprint Car Series has long had a strong presence within the State of Missouri, with 61 Lucas Oil ASCS National events contested at 14 different tracks throughout the Show Me State since 1994.
Beginning in 2011, the ASCS will now have a well-defined regional presence in the Show Me State as well with the ASCS Warrior Region, which operated as the Winged Outlaw Warriors from 2000 through 2010 before being acquired at the end of the 2010 racing season.
Now under the ASCS banner, the ASCS Warrior Region has released a 2011 schedule that includes 18 nights of competition at seven different tracks throughout Missouri as well as appearances at a pair of tracks just across the Illinois and Kansas borders.
The Warrior Region will conduct its first event under the ASCS banner April 9 at LaMonte, Missouri’s LA Raceway.
After an event with the Lucas Oil ASCS National forces at Tri-City Speedway just across the border in Pontoon Beach, Ill., May 6, the first of two events tentatively scheduled for California’s Double X Speedway is May 29, with a Double X encore July 3.
One night after the first of three ASCS Midwest vs. ASCS Warrior tilts at Cameron’s U.S. 36 Raceway June 17 (with others on July 15 and Aug. 26), the ASCS Warrior Region takes to Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., June 18.
The following weekend, the ASCS Warrior Region squares off against the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by K&N Filters National forces for a pair of $6,000-to-win events at LA Raceway (June 24) and Eldon’s Lake Speedway (June 25).
An ASCS Warrior vs. ASCS Sooner Showdown at Springfield Raceway July 2 leads into the July 3 Double X Speedway card, with August finding the ASCS Warrior Region at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., for the first time Aug. 19-20 before the traditional Missouri State Fair stop in Sedalia Aug. 21.
The ASCS Warrior Region is currently scheduled to close out the season with a pair of September doubledips that includes the Lake Ozark Speedway Sprint Car Nationals Sept. 3-4 and the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial event in tandem with the Lucas Oil ASCS National series at Lucas Oil Speedway Sept. 23-24.
