48TH "TONY HULMAN CLASSIC" KICKS OFF BIG WEEK OF USAC RACING

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Terre Haute, Indiana.........Kevin Thomas, Jr. has seemingly had the Midas touch in USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car competition over the past two years. No driver has accumulated more victories than the Cullman, Alabama driver over that stretch and he arrives at this Wednesday night's 48th running of the "Tony Hulman Classic" as the reigning race winner and the current series point leader.

Thomas has already won twice this season at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. and Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway. Last fall, though, Thomas picked up one of the biggest victories of his career as he slid his way past Dave Darland with five laps remaining, then ran down leader Chase Stockon with three to go to win his first USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature at the Action Track in four seasons.

Thomas owns two career USAC National Sprint Car victories at the half-mile dirt oval in Terre Haute, also winning back in 2013 during "Indiana Sprint Week" in a ferocious battle with Darland. His Dynamics, Inc./Hoffman Auto Racing team has won four times at Terre Haute, including one "Hulman Classic" with Jerry Coons, Jr. in 2010.

The "Hulman Classic" has been a special event for Darland over the years. It's the home of the Lincoln, Indiana native's first career series win back in 1993. A mere 21 years later, in 2014, he was back in victory lane at the Action Track for his second "Hulman Classic" win. The resurgence of Darland has already led him to victory lane at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway in April.

Second in points, Chris Windom has a full plate of racing on his docket for this week, beginning with Wednesday's "Hulman Classic." The 2011 "Hulman Classic" winner also intends to run Thursday's "Hoosier Hundred" at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, the "Dave Steele Carb Night Classic" at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Indiana on Friday and the Payless "Little 500" on Saturday at Anderson (Ind.) Speedway. Sandwiched between all that is his debut appearance with the Indy Lights series in the "Freedom 100" at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, marking 770 laps of competition in five races for the Canton, Illinois native in main events over a four-day span.

Robert Ballou, sixth in the standings, collected the two most recent "Hulman Classic" rifles prior to Thomas, winning the "Hulman" back-to-back in 2015 and 2016. After a tough start to the season, the 2015 series champ out of Rocklin, Calif. has finished in the top-five in his last three starts with two second-place finishes.

Another past series champ who's returned to form in the most recent races after a sluggish start is Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Brady Bacon. The 2014 and 2016 champ has finished in the top-five in each of his past three starts, including a victory at Eldora two weeks ago to rise up to eighth in the standings.

Ninth in points, Ione, California's Justin Grant is USAC's most recent winner at Terre Haute, capturing the "Sumar Classic" for the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car division in late April. Starting from the pole position in that race was Tyler Courtney from Indianapolis, Indiana. The driver known as "Sunshine" is third in points on the strength of two early season victories in Ocala, Fla.

Like Grant, C.J. Leary has reached the peak at Terre Haute in USAC competition, but not yet in a sprint car. In 2016, the Greenfield, Indiana native picked up a "Sumar Classic" Silver Crown victory and has been a perennial frontrunner in that event. He recently finished fifth in this year's edition and is looking to break through for his first USAC National Sprint Car win of the year following a banner year in 2017 in which he earned a career-high five wins.

Jerry Coons, Jr. is one of three multiple-time "Hulman Classic" winners entered for Terre Haute, bagging that crown in 2010 and 2013. The Tucson, Arizona native, and one of six USAC Triple Crown champs, returns to action in the Krockenberger Racing No. 21K.

Chase Stockon, fifth in the standings, finished third in last year's "Hulman," coming up just three laps short of the win after leading the first 27 laps of the 30-lap feature. You can count on the Fort Branch, Indiana driver being one of the contenders yet again this Wednesday. After all, he is a past USAC National Sprint Car winner at Terre Haute back in 2016 at the "Don Smith Classic."

Hanford, California's Chad Boespflug resides 10th in the standings, and has come close to winning at Terre Haute twice with a pair of runner-up finishes in two of his last three USAC Sprint Car appearances there.

The "Tony Hulman Classic" began in 1971 and is the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car division's longest-running annually-contested event. George Snider was victorious in the first edition. Other winners over the years include, just to name a few, Joe Saldana, Gary Bettenhausen, Pancho Carter, Jan Opperman, Sheldon Kinser, Jack Hewitt, Ron Shuman, Rich Vogler, Steve Butler, Doug Kalitta, J.J. Yeley, Tracy Hines, Jon Stanbrough Cory Kruseman, plus the only three-time winners of the event: Cary Faas and Levi Jones.

USAC's "The Week of Indy" begins at the Terre Haute Action Track on Wednesday, May 23. The "Tony Hulman Classic" will feature the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car tour and the Scott's Custom Colors UMP DIRTcar Modifieds.

Terre Haute pits are scheduled to open at 3pm, grandstands at 4pm, hot laps at 6:30pm, and racing action is scheduled to begin at 8pm. General admission tickets for the "Tony Hulman Classic" will be sold at the gate for $25 on raceday. Infield tickets are also available for $15, while children 11 and under are free.

Tickets can be obtained by calling Track Enterprises at 217-764-3200 or at the gate on raceday. A three-day special Superticket for the full week of Indy including the "Tony Hulman Classic" at the Terre Haute Action Track on Wednesday, May 23, the "Hoosier Hundred" at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Thursday, May 24 and the "Dave Steele Carb Night Classic" at Lucas Oil Raceway on Friday, May 25 is also available at https://usacracing.ticketspice.com/2018-week-of-indy.

TWO-TIME WINNER SWINDELL, SILVER CROWN CHAMP SCHRADER RETURN TO HOOSIER HUNDRED THURSDAY

By: Jay Hardin - Track Enterprises Staff

Indianapolis, Indiana.........Eleven rookies on this year's Hoosier Hundred entry list have the opportunity of a lifetime to learn from two legendary drivers who competed in the big cars long before many of the rookies were even born.

If the return of 1991 & 1993 race winner Jeff Swindell wasn't enough news, the return of 1982 Silver Crown champion Ken Schrader has only added to the buzz created by the continued upward swing of USAC's top tier series.

Swindell continues to hold the 60-mile track record set here in May of 1987 when he drove from the back of the pack to capture a spectacular race win in the "Hulman 100" and went on to turn heads that year setting a world record at Springfield and nearly winning at Du Quoin. His performance led to a full-time ride with Tim Delrose and Bob Galas in 1990 and, in 1991, they captured the first of two "Hoosier Hundred" races.

Swindell was mostly absent from the series after the 1993 season, but returned in 2006 to run at Springfield and Du Quoin for Galas. Jeff came back to Indianapolis in 2010 and 2011, and again in 2016. In 2016, he was marching toward the front when he was caught up in an accident on lap 84. Later that year, he led 55 miles at Du Quoin before finishing second and nearly won at Du Quoin last year, showing that there is still gas left in the tank of the Tennessee native.

1982 Silver Crown champ Ken Schrader made his series debut at Terre Haute, ironically, driving for Tim Delrose and Bob Galas. The 1979 USAC Stock Car Rookie of the Year and the 1983 USAC Sprint Car champ would eventually go on to become a NASCAR Rookie of the Year and a multi-time NASCAR Cup winner before scaling back to run dirt tracks and a part-time ARCA schedule. He toyed with the idea of getting back into one of the dirt champ cars back in 2016. The idea became a reality in 2017 when Springfield, Illinois car owner Dennis McQuinn offered him the seat of the familiar orange 14 and Schrader willingly accepted running both Springfield and Du Quoin.

Kenny first appeared on the Indy mile in the May 1982 "Hulman 100," starting second and finishing third while leading 37 miles. He finished ninth in the 1982 "Hoosier Hundred," then won the pole in 1983 and led the first nine laps before blowing an engine in front of the grandstand on lap 33. His best finish in the event came in 1984 when he started and finished seventh, his last appearance in a dirt car on the fairgrounds mile. He has since, however, won in ARCA stock cars and UMP Modifieds at the fairgrounds.

The "Hoosier Hundred" presented by TBA Oil & Warehouse begins with the pits opening at noon, grandstands opening at 3pm, practice at 5pm and racing at 7pm. The 100-mile main event is scheduled for an 8pm start.

The "Hoosier Hundred" is the second of three events in USAC's "Week of Indy," featuring the "Tony Hulman Classic" at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track on Wednesday, May 23, the "Hoosier Hundred" at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis on Thursday, May 24, and the "Dave Steele Carb Night Classic" at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Indiana on Friday, May 25.

A great deal is available for those who don't want to miss a single lap of "The Week of Indy". A Superticket is being sold for a savings of 25% off of the regular three-day prices. For just $60, a savings of $20, a fan will receive general admission at Terre Haute and Lucas Oil Raceway as well as a reserved seat for the "Hoosier Hundred." To purchase a Superticket, visit https://usacracing.ticketspice.com/2018-week-of-indy or call 217-764-3200.

The "Hoosier Hundred" will be streamed LIVE on www.SpeedShiftTV.com/. A day later, you can watch it again, on-demand, at http://www.Loudpedal.TV/. You can also listen to all the action LIVE on the USAC app.

Outlaws Forced to Postpone Return to Bridgeport Speedway

SWEDESBORO, NJ – May 21, 2018 – Mother Nature has struck again, forcing the postponement of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series return to Bridgeport Speedway. The event was scheduled for tomorrow Tuesday, May 22, but extremely saturated grounds at the facility have forced the World of Outlaws and Bridgeport Speedway to postpone the event to a later date.

Both Bridgeport track officials and World of Outlaws officials were at the facility Monday afternoon and worked feverishly before making the ultimate decision that the facility will not be ready by Tuesday due to the amount of rainfall received over the last 72 hours.

Outlaw and Bridgeport officials are working on a date for a potential rescheduled event. Stay tuned to World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series social media channels for the most up to date information. The World of Outlaws 40th Anniversary Season continues Friday, May 25 with the Outlaw Showdown at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway before heading back to the Midwest.
