The dates and venues have been set for the 12th annual USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Eastern Storm tour in 2018. Two first-time venues, Bridgeport Speedway and Weedsport Speedway, have been locked-in as the newest additions to the six-race series scheduled for June 14–19.

It will mark the first time Eastern Storm schedule has been six races and the first time the series has spanned across three states in a single week.  

Traditional Eastern Storm stops Grandview Speedway (June 14), Williams Grove Speedway (June 15), Port Royal Speedway (June 16) and BAPS Motor Speedway (June 17) return to the lineup as the first four events.

From there, the series will head back to the Garden State of New Jersey for the first time in two years at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro on June 18.

"We're thrilled to bring what the fans have asked for," Bridgeport Speedway owner Brian Ramey said. "We are beyond excited to be a part of Eastern Storm for 2018."

The following night, Eastern Storm concludes at Weedsport Speedway, marking USAC's first ever trip to the New York track and the AMSOIL National Sprint Car division's first trip to the state since 2006.

Last year's Eastern Storm saw five different winners in five races, concluding with eventual USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion Chris Windom taking the title.
