WoO, USAC Share Feature Status At Eldora

For just the third time in history, some of the country’s best sprint car drivers, both winged and traditional non-wing, converge this coming Friday and Saturday night at Eldora Speedway.

The #LetsRaceTwo Doubleheader features the nation’s premier sprint car tours, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and United States Auto Club (USAC) Amsoil National Sprint Cars, on the same track on the same nights.

Both divisions will have a complete program each night highlighted by a 30-lap main event on both Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13.

The two series have long histories at the storied high-banked, half-mile clay oval. This weekend’s events will be the 162nd and 163rd World of Outlaw events at Eldora, while the USAC sprint cars have been competing at Eldora since 1960 and will be competing in their 194th and 195th feature events.

Only four drivers have scored both World of Outlaw and USAC Sprint Car wins at Eldora. Steve Kinser (35 World of Outlaws wins, two USAC wins), Jac Haudenschild (six World of Outlaws, five USAC), Danny Smith (one in each) and Brad Sweet (one in each) are the only drivers to have beaten the best of the best in the two sprint car disciplines.

Haudenschild and Sweet will be in the action this weekend but both are only expected to compete with the World of Outlaw Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

Spectator gates open at 2 p.m. both days with the first cars hitting the track at 6 p.m. for hot laps and qualifying.

Racing For Relief, a St. Henry-based organization which conducts the sale of tickets for the Tony Stewart Foundation 50/50 Raffle, will host their membership’s first kart race of the season on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. at “Little E” – Eldora’s 1/7th-mile clay oval.
