We “sprang forward” into daylight savings time last Saturday, and Eagle Raceway has just made a huge leap forward to bring the fans the best in dirt track competition.
We are pleased to announce “The Rumble in the Bullring” on Friday August 5th, 2011. Headlining the evening’s racing will be the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Cars. This will be the first appearance for the wingless 410’s at Eagle in nearly a decade, and the first visit ever to Nebraska by the USAC sprinters.
Last year Damion Gardner held a slim 18 point lead over Levi Jones in the final National points standings. Bryan Clauson held down the third spot with Hunter Schuerenberg and Jon Stanbrough rounding out the top 5. Who knows which driver will reign triumphant this year??
That alone would be a great show, but we’re not stopping there. Just to be sure that the excitement level doesn’t drop, the SLMR Late Models will also be flying around the high banks of “America’s Home Track”. And, to round out a fantastic night we are bringing in the Mod Lites and Mini Sprints too. Racing will begin at 7:00.
This is one date that you will want to make SURE is on your racing calendar, because it promises to be one of the highlights of this season’s racing at the world’s fastest 1/3 mile!! Make it a 2-night weekend of racing by coming back on Saturday evening to take in our regular Saturday night card.
Eagle Raceway is located at the junction of US Highway 34 and Nebraska Highway 63, 11 miles south of Exit #420 off of I-80 or 12 miles east of Lincoln, Ne. For further information, visit our website at http://www.eagleraceway.com/ or call the race line at 402-781-2243.
