EASTERN STORM AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
AMSOIL USAC NON-WING SPRINTS & MACH 1 360/358 SPRINTS PREP FOR DOUBLE HEADER 4 FEATURE PROGRAM ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 3 AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY, TIME TRIALS AT 7 PM
Abbottstown, PA . . . . . .. The second round of the Eastern Storm invades the Pigeon Hills on Wednesday, June 3 at 7:00 PM with the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series and the Mach 1 Chassis 360/358 Sprint Cars at the Lincoln Speedway. A big and exciting night of competition is planned with a full show for both the USAC and 360/358 MACH 1 Sprints plus the make-up features from the 2014 rain out. Gates will open at 5 PM.
Heading into the event, all eyes are on “The People’s Champ” Dave Darland as he chases his 100th USAC victory in the three national series, putting him in the history books with the likes of A.J. Foyt, Rich Vogler and Mel Kenyon as the only drivers to reach the coveted USAC 100 career win mark.
Darland, of Kokomo, IN -- currently sits third in the Series points standing behind Robert Ballou (Rocklin, CA) and Chase Stockon (Elizabethtown, IN) and holds two AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car victories this season.
Prior to last year’s postponement Darland was awarded the fast qualifier award with a time of 15.174 – a new track record. An ultra-fast racing surface led to a lot of wheel standing down the Lincoln Speedway straight-a-ways and to the top-9 cars besting the previous Lincoln Speedway USAC track record.
A spectacular show is expected with the USAC wingless Sprints running a complete show plus a 25-lap make-up feature. The line-up for the make-up feature will be determined by inverting all cars on the lead lap from the first USAC feature of the night. This should guarantee plenty of passing as the top USAC stars make a second charge to the front of the pack. Nationally ranked drivers Jon Stanbrough, Kevin Thomas Jr., Tracy Hines, CJ Leary and 2014 Eastern Storm Champion, Brady Bacon will all be in attendance. While regional stars Brent Marks, Joe Biasi, Trevor Kobylarz, Brian Allman and Michael Hamer will all be searching for the top prize.
Rounding out the event will be a complete show for the Mach 1 Chassis 360/358 Winged Sprint Cars plus a 25-lap make-up feature and a postponed B-Main from 2014.
Seven-time USAC National Champion, Levi Jones was the winner both times the Eastern Storm invaded the Lincoln Speedway in 2010 and 2011.
