LAS VEGAS' "BULLRING" TO HOST USAC TRIPLEHEADER APRIL 3 - The Bullring at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway will host a USAC racing "tripleheader" on April 3, featuring the Western Sprint Cars, Western Midgets and California Ford Focus Midgets on the 3/8-mile paved oval.
Although the Sprint and Midget car races had been released previously, the Ford Focus event has now been added after Dave Swindell, the Kings Speedway (Hanford, Calif.) race organizer who originally had been issued the date, agreed to release the date for this special occasion.
The April 3 date coincides with Las Vegas Motor Speedway's NHRA Summitracing.com Drag Racing spectacular on the LVMS drag strip, giving the Bullring events additional exposure.
A 25-lap feature is on tap for the Ford Focus Midgets, while 40-lap features are planned for both the Sprint Cars and Midgets.
The last appearance of the USAC Sprint Cars and Midgets at the Bullring was in 2002 when NASCAR, IRL and USAC Champion Tony Stewart won both feature races.
