Bloomington, Indiana (April 8, 2019)………Bloomington Speedway’s new era begins this Friday night, April 12, with the “Larry Rice Classic” featuring the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship.

Facility improvements over the offseason to the track, whose racing tradition dates back to 1923, have given a facelift to the southern Indiana quarter-mile dirt oval under the management team led by Bloomington native / USAC Silver Crown manager A.J. Bowlen and the United States Auto Club.

This Friday’s season debut will be the first of three USAC National events on the Bloomington calendar, in addition to “Indiana Midget Week” featuring the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship on June 7 and the “Sheldon Kinser Memorial” return for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars during “Indiana Sprint Week” on July 26.

The April 12 event card also includes the RaceSaver Sprint Cars and UMP Modifieds. “Indiana Midget Week” will also feature Sprint Cars and MMSA Mini Sprints on the docket. “Indiana Sprint Week” will have RaceSaver Sprint Cars in conjunction with USAC.
