Last year, in the first wingless sprint car event at the track since 2002 and the first USAC appearance at the track since 1996, Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Alabama, took the Williams Grove USAC payday.
Thomas is the current USAC National point leader as the series heads into Williams Grove Speedway this Friday for what will be leg number two of a six-night swing by the USACers through the eastern states.
