USAC Open Wheel Night At The Stockton 99 Speedway

Saturday, July 9th, Stockton 99 Speedway presents USAC Open Wheel Night featuring USAC Western Classic Racing Series Sprint Cars, USAC Western Midgets, Ford Focus Midgets and Jr Focus. This is a great opportunity to see local legend, 6-time USAC Champion, Tony Hunt from Lincoln, who is the points leader in the USAC Western Classic Series. This is the inaugural year of the series featuring 8 races on pavement and 8 on dirt. Tony usually dominates on pavement after winning the 2010 USAC Western States Championship last year, which is an all pavement series.

For all the open-wheel lovers and all those who are addicted to high-powered speed, this is one you won’t want to miss because these four-wheel rockets haul the mail, circling the tricky quarter-mile oval in the 12 second range. Don’t blink!
