The United States Auto Club (USAC) has announced that Doug Lockwood will manage and oversee race-related operations, planning, and scheduling events for both the USAC Western States Midget and West Coast Sprint Car divisions.

Lockwood begins his new position ahead of the October 10 doubleheader featuring both series at California’s Placerville Speedway.

“I am looking forward to working with the USAC West Coast family again,” Lockwood said. “I have to thank Levi Jones and Chris Kearns for the opportunity. We are going to continue to build it up and make this a place where racers want to race with us and have fun doing it.”

Lockwood, who previously served as a Director of Competition with USAC’s Western series, is the Merced (California) Speedway general manager. He succeeds Chris Kearns, who will take on a larger role with USAC sanctioning in its Rally, Off-Road, and Karting series.
