Rumble in the Bull Ring! presented by Coors Light -Friday, Aug 5th

Posted 01 Aug 2011 in Headlines

It’s been well over 30 years since Eagle Raceway had a weekly non-winged sprint car show, and there has been no non-winged competition at Eagle for several years now. But that will all change this Friday night!! Fans will have a chance to see something that’s never happened before in the state of Nebraska on Friday, August 5th, 2011. The wingless wizards of the United States Auto Club will be bringing their 410 Sprint Cars to compete at “America’s Home Track” Eagle Raceway that evening as Coors Light presents the Rumble in the Bull Ring!!

Since Tony Hulman formed USAC in 1955, the non-winged sprint cars have never competed in the Cornhusker State; but that will be remedied when the nation’s oldest continuously run nationally touring dirt track racing series visit the high banked 1/3 mile.  The Amsoil USAC Sprint Cars compete from coast to coast each year, and Eagle Raceway is honored to have them visit our facility.

Currently, Levi Jones leads the season-long points race. Chris Windom, Jon Stanbrough, Bryan Clauson and Robert Ballou round out the top 5 in the chase and all of them hope to close the gap with a victory at Eagle. Those 5 and many, many more drivers will be the first USAC competitors to drive their 410 fire-breathers here for the big $5,000 grand prize, and will give the folks in the stands a thrill that will stay with them for many years to come. Also on the card are the SLMR Late Models, Mod Lites and the 600cc Mini-Sprints.

The USAC $500 Bonus Challenge will go to the highest finishing 360 Wingless Sprint that competes with the 410′s.
