USCS Outlaw Thunder winged sprint cars set to invade two Carolina paved ovals on Friday and Saturday, April 25th and 26th .

Atlanta, GA - April 14, 2014 - The United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters is set to bring its 130+ mile per hour ground pounding winged sprint cars to two paved Carolina oval tracks on Friday, April 25th and Saturday, April 26th . The events are Round #1 and Round #2 of the six-race USCS “Road to Atlanta” Series to qualify cars to compete in the Labor Day weekend USCS “Sprint Car Shootout” at Atlanta Motor Speedway during their NASCAR Sprint Cup race weekend. On Friday, April 25th the USCS invades Anderson Motor Speedway in Anderson, South Carolina to do battle around the historic 3/8 mile paved oval. On the following night the series moves East to the 4/10 mile high banked oval at Southern National Motorsports Park near Kenly, North Carolina on Saturday, April 26th. Both tracks are currently NASCAR sanctioned for their weekly racing events. Over twenty-seven thousand dollars ($27,000) in prize money is posted for the two USCS events.

Fans can expect to see an exotic mixture of winged Outlaw style sprint cars designed and utilized for dirt track racing in a battle with cars designed primarily for paved track racing. The USCS rules for pavement events make both types of cars capable of being equally competitive. Driver pre-entries are expected from some of the Nation’s top drivers from at least seven states as far away as Arkansas, Florida and Ohio

The United Sprint Car Series is the only winged sprint car series in the World that contests it’s Championship on both dirt and paved ovals. At 1,300 pounds and over 700 horsepower, winged sprint cars are pound for pound the World’s fastest and most powerful short-track cars. United Sprint Car Series founder and President, Pete Walton said,”We are totally excited about this change of pace after our first five successful events on dirt ovals. We welcome the opportunity for our drivers and race teams to showcase their talents in front of all the great fans at both Anderson Motor Speedway and Southern National Motorsports Park. Those race fans who have missed the previous United Sprint Car Series events at these tracks and the ones that have never seen this type of racing are in store for an exciting evening at either track next weekend” concluded Walton.

Lance Moss races to career-first win in USCS vs. URC North vs. South contest at Lancaster Speedway

Lancaster, SC April 11, 2014 - Lance Moss from Cherryville, North Carolina raced to a career-first sprint car feature win in the USCS presented by K&N Filters vs. Rislone URC North vs. South “Spring Speed Xplosion” Round #2 at Lancaster Speedway on Saturday night. Moss then had an emotional victory lane celebration thanking all involved in making his win possible. Moss also reversed the previous night’s finishing order by besting his cousin, Johnny Bridges also from Cherryville, North Carolina for the top spot. Bridges, who followed Moss to the www.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane in the runner-up spot made a late race pass of Moss on Friday night at Carolina Speedway to spoil Moss’ victory plans in Round #1 of the two night battle.

The 2012 Rislone URC Sprints Champion, Robbie Stillwaggon from Burlington, New Jersey finished in the K&N Filters Podium award third place, Stillwaggon was followed by URC regular Troy Betts from Newark, Delaware in fourth place.

Female hot-shoe Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee completed the top five finishing drivers.

The 10-time USCS National Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee headed the next group in sixth place. Young gun Eric Riggins, Jr. from Charlotte, North Carolina intended to leave his mark on the weekend’s competition. Riggins grabbed the lead from Moss who started from the K&N Filters Pole Position on lap seven and led until lap eighteen when his car jumped out of gear. He pushed off and restarted from the rear to recover to seventh place at the finish. Thr mechanical failure was most likely cause by damage from his “out of the park” experience at Carolina Speedway on Friday night when he flipped completely out of the speedway while battling Lance Moss for the lead. Terry Witherspoon from Jacksonville, Florida finished in eighth place followed by Brandon McLain from Indian Trail, North Carolina in ninth position and rookie Brad Franks from Collegeville, Pennsylvania rounded out the top ten.

Terry Witherspoon kicked of the evening’s action by winning the 6 cars, 6 laps Hoosier Speed Dash. USCS regular Morgan Turpen won the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat. Troy Betts won the Butlerbuilt Second Heat. After first heat winner Morgan Turpen drew a six in the K&N Filters Pole Award drawing, sixth postion passing points earner, Lance Moss garnered the K&N Filters Pole Position. Tim Perry advanced the most positions in the A-Main to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hardcharger Award.

This event is expected to bring top winged outlaw sprint car drivers from at least five states to the track. The exotic fire breathing, alcohol burning, 700 horsepower open wheel cars weight just 1,300 pounds, and are pound for pound the World’s most powerful short track race cars. The cars will literally fly around the track surface at speeds over 100 M.P.H. It is not uncommon to see the USCS sprint cars popping "wheelies" or doing wheel stands because of the brute force of their engines and their huge 17-inch wide Hoosier rear racing tires.

Saturday night's USCS Outlaw sprint car action will feature a full program of racing in the Outlaw sprint cars that kicks off with test and tune hot laps. Hot laps will be followed by the Hoosier Speed Dash that showcases the top six cars from the previous USCS main event in an edge-of-your-seat six-car shootout.

Ken Schrader was the 2012 “Frostbuster” USCS Modified Champion in only his second ever appearance at the track.

USCS Winged Sprint Cars return Atlanta Motor Speedway on August 29th

Atlanta, GA – January 27, 2014 - The United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour winged sprint cars are set for a return engagement at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia on Friday, August 29th for the 2014 version of the USCS Sprint Car Shootout. The event will be held during Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Labor Day weekend 2014 race date on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule. The winged warriors of the USCS will again light up the night immediately following the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying session with a 50-lap USCS winged sprint car main event on the quarter-mile paved AMS “Thunder Ring,” located on the front stretch of the speedway.

United Sprint Car Series founder and President, Pete Walton said, ”We are totally excited about this opportunity for our drivers and race teams to return to AMS and showcase their talents during this major racing event for the second year in a row. Some of the best drivers in NASCAR’s top racing division excelled in sprint car racing. It will again be an honor for the USCS to be racing in front of them and all the great fans at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Labor Day weekend”.

“The nearly 35,000 race fans who attended last season must have agreed that the USCS drivers put on an exciting event. Apparently this was good enough for a return to the speedway during this action-packed race weekend. Race fans who missed the 2013 USCS Sprint Car Shootout at AMS and have never seen this type of racing are in store for an exciting evening on Friday, August 29th” concluded Walton

The USCS Sprint Car Shootout format on August 29, 2014 will see the USCS winged sprint car competitors contest a practice session that will be followed by a time trial qualifying session on Friday (August 29th) from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. This three hour time frame will allow for two rounds of practice for each competitor followed by time trials and then a series of qualifying races to determine the final starting order for the 50-lap USCS Sprint Car Shootout finale.

The preliminary interest from sprint car competitors is again extremely high for the Atlanta Motor Speedway USCS event. The series (USCS) has scheduled six to eight paved oval races during the 2014 season that will occur prior to the AMS August 29th event. This series of pavement events will be entitled as the USCS “Road to Atlanta” 2014 series. The USCS races in the “Road to Atlanta” 2014 series will serve as qualifiers for the event at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

A field comprised of some of the top winged sprint car drivers from across the nation are expected to compete in the USCS “Road to Atlanta” racing series to gain a spot in the 2014 Atlanta Motor Speedway event. The field will be limited to 24 pre-qualified entries for the event due to time restraints.

The United Sprint Car Series is the only winged sprint car series in the World that contests it’s Championship on both dirt and paved ovals. At 1,300 pounds and over 700 horsepower, winged sprint cars are pound for pound the World’s fastest and most powerful short-track cars. The USCS winged sprint cars are expected to reach speeds of approximately one hundred miles per hour (100 M.P.H.) around the quarter mile AMS "Thunder Ring."

Gardner and Skinner share USCS Flip Flop 50 victory lane visits at Riverside

Cody Gardner grabs win in USCS “Flip Flop 50” Feature #1

Sunday, November 3, 2013 –-West Memphis, AR - Cody Gardner from Little Rock, Arkansas stole the United Sprint Car Series Flip Flop feature race #1 victory from defending USCS National Champion Tim Crawley from Benton, Arkansas on the next to last lap of the first of the two main events during the Flip Flop 50 sprint car Nationals at Parts Plus Riverside International Speedway on Sunday afternoon. The afternoon portion of the event saw the ¼ mile racing surface slick and slippery and Gardner’s setup came in perfectly to rocket of the bottom of the fourth corner into the lead after spending most of the race chasing Crawley and then USCS National points leader Derek Hagar as they battled for the lead and the title in the USCS Mid South Thunder regional series.

Through a series of five cautions and red flags over the distance, Gardner pursued from no worse than third place. After 13 year-old rookie of the year contender, Taylor Tidmore tumbled coming off the fourth corner, just before the current leader, Tim Crawley was to receive the checkers, the red flag and lights showed for Tidmore’s tumble. Young Tidmore was declared to be okay. The wreck and the red flag situation created a green flag, white flag and checkered flag finish.

This gave Gardner who, was in the runner-up spot, the final opportunity to challenge Crawley for the win. Gardner raced underneath Crawley on the next lap exiting turn four then raced under the white flag and held off the 2012 USCS Champion over the final quarter mile to pick up his second USCS Flip Flop 50 win of his career. This trip to the www.rockauto.com USCS victory lane paid Gardner $2500 for winning the first portion of the twin 25 lap events.

Tim Crawley chased Gardner under the checker flag in the runner-up spot followed by Anthony Nicholson from Bartlett, Tennessee in third place. Nicholson, who started way back in seventeenth position, collected both the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard charger award and the K&N Filters Podium Award for his third place finish. Joey Moughan from Springfield, Illinois had his best USCS finish to date in fourth place. 2010 USCS Rookie of the Year and the only female racer in the field, Morgan Turpen rounded out the top ten drivers after starting tenth.

USCS National point’s leader, Derek Hagar from Marion, Arkansas who raced to the front on lap twenty, faded with a tire going flat over the last five laps to sixth place. Ten-time series Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee followed Hagar in seventh place and rapid 18 year old rookie driver, Brandon Hanks from Burlison, Tennessee was eighth. Interstate Cup (I-30 and Riverside Speedways) Champion A.G. Rains from West Memphis, Arkansas finished ninth and young gun Dalton Davis from Millington, Tennessee rounded out the top ten.

The win on the first main event set the young driver (Gardner) up for a shot at $10,000 total if he could win the second half of the Flip Flop 50 from the rear (22nd position) including another $2500 top prize and a $5000 bonus for accomplishing the challenging feat. In the second half of the Flip Flop 50 the field would start in inverted order from the finish of the first contest. All cars that finished behind Cody Gardner would start in a fully inverted field in front of the winner of the first race.

Marshall Skinner races to win in second 25-lap “Flip Flop 50” main event

In the second Flip Flop 25 lap main event, second year USCS competitor, Justin Webb from Drummonds, Tennessee raced into the lead from his outside front row starting position and led the first nine laps. On lap ten, past USCS series Champion, Marshall Skinner from Marion, Arkansas raced past Webb into the lead. On lap eleven past USCS Rookie of the Year driver Jerod Roller from Hernando, Mississippi got around Webb and chased Skinner. Roller could never make a winning pass and Skinner held on the final fifteen laps to the www.rockauto.com USCS victory lane. There were two caution periods and a red flag period for Dalton Davis’ flip when he and Henry Gustavus from Marion, Arkansas made contact while racing for third place.

Roller followed Skinner across the line on the runner-up spot followed by Henry Gustavus in the K&N Filters Podium Awarding third place. A.G. Rains followed in fourth place and 2013 United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters National Champion Derek Hagar who started fifteenth completed the top five finishers.

K&N Filters Pole Position starter Geoff Dodge from Denver, Colorado led the next group of drivers in sixth place. Brandon Hanks who won the second Flip Flop 50 main event in 2012 started thirteenth and finished seventh this time. He was followed by Morgan Turpen who started sixteenth and finished eighth. 2012 USCS Champion Tim Crawley, who started nineteenth after a second place finish in the first feature, finished ninth in this one. Zack Pringle from Benton, Arkansas who didn’t finish the first feature rounded out the top ten in the second main event.

While many drivers advanced a number of positions, first feature winner Cody Gardner never advanced past tenth place on the track that had taken much rubber during the day portion of the event during the first event and during the other classes’ races.

Earlier in the day 2013 USCS Rookie of the Year Curt Terrell won the 12-lap B Main event. Anthony Nicholson was the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger in the Flip Flop 50 First Feature race after advancing fourteen positions in the main event.

2013 National Champion, Derek Hagar raced from fifteenth to fifth to earn the Wilwood Hard Charger Award in the second feature.

The USCS Fall nationals/Flip Flop 50 was the 17th anniversary season finale for the United Sprint Car Series. The 2014 season USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour will be release during December (2013). Tentatively the USCS season opener for all divisions is set for Friday, February 28th and Saturday, March 1st at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi.

Greenville, MS - May 26,2013 - The stage was set as the USCS Winged Outlaw Sprint Cars rolled into the confines of Greenville Speedway for the second round of Sprint Car Speedweeks. The black gumbo clay took a pounding as 35 sprints took to the ¼ mile bullring billed as the fastest in Mississippi. The line up was divided into 5 Heat races and the action never stopped The feature was set thru the heat races based on passing points from the heats. 14 positions were locked in as the 17z of Zack Pringle took the first heat, Second Heat winner was # 9jr Derek Hagar, Third was won by Terry Gray from Bartlett Tn with a close finish over teammate #10m Morgan Turpen.The heats continued as former Modified driver Casey Rowland #C4 took the fourth heat and heat 5 showed Saturday nights winner Tim Crawley #88 with the checkers.

Two 10 lap B-mains followed as the 12 of Dalton Davis The #40 of Raymond Stoll and the #25 of Ray Bugg transferred from the first B-main. The second B-main was filled with cautions but #26 Marshall Skinner, #28 Jeff Willingham and Rookie of the year contender Curt Terrell made it into the feature. The field of 22 cars should #13 Taylor Tidmore and 3h Brandon Hanks tagging on the rear taking advantage of their USCS Provisional.

The feature rolled on the track with the #17 Cody Gardner leading the way but the caution flew as the #40 spun. Gardner then took to the point and looked strong as (jr Hagar dogged him for the first spot. The field ran clean and green but Hagar never let Gardner out of his sight. Lap 13 saw a lead change as Hagar showed his strength bringing the 3a of A.G.Raines with him on lap 14. The action was hot and heavy as stong racing occurred through out the field. Tim Crawley #88 was picking off positions from his 6th starting spot and steadily moving towards the front. Lap 17 saw #47 “the Carolina Kid, Eric Riggins spin in turn 4 to bring out the yellow.

Crawley wasted no time taking the lead on the next restart and held that position heading to the end of the race.

The crowd was screaming as they witnessed some of the best drivers in the country tear up the black clay and jockey for position.

The “Crawdaddy” Tim Crawley looked like he had the win in the bag but the 9jr of Hagar had other thoughts.

USCS Winged Outlaw Sprint Car Points Battle on FIRE
The USCS Sprint car points are as close as anyone can remember as the tour heads towards its 7th annual “Sprint car Speed week”. Competitive racing is what the series is known for and the National and Regional point standings are a true indicator to that statement. Consistency seems to be the name of the game as 2012 National Champion Tim Crawley #88 leads the 2013 National points race by only one point over Derek Hagar 9jr. from Marion, Arkansas. #10 Terry Grey 10 time USCS Champion finds himself in 3rd position with Team mate Morgan Turpin 2010 National USCS Rookie of the year 4th and Millington Tennessee’s 12d Dalton Davis holding the 5th position in the USCS National points standings

Lewisburg, TN - Saturday, April 20, 2013 – Derek Hagar from Marion Arkansas, again drove his #9Jr. Dynotech powered J&J Auto Racing/R.E. Enterprise sprint car from the K&N Filters Pole Position outside into the www.rockauto.com United Sprint Car Series victory lane at Duck River Raceway Park on Saturday night. It was Hagar’s thirteenth career United Sprint Car Series feature win and third of five USCS events during the 2013 season. Hagar led every lap while holding off the challenges of 2012 USCS National Champion, Tim Crawley from Benton, Arkansas who started outside the front row. The evening’s results left the two driver’s separated by just two points in the 2013 title chase with Hagar holding on the the scant lead.

Ten-time USCS National Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee, who started sixth raced past the checkered flag on Crawley’s rear bumper to grab the final podium position in the K&N Filters Podium Award third place, 2010 USCS Rookie of the Year and the only female sprint car driver in the field, Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee battled for the first 15 laps with Crawley for the runner-up spot, but got passed by her teammate (Gray) on lap 16. She then battled with 2008 USCS Rookie of the Year, Anthony Nicholson from Bartlett, Tennessee for the fourth position. Nicholson passed here once but gave it back and the two talented young racers crossed the finish line with Turpen in fourth place and Nicholson, who finished third in the 2012 National standings rounding out the top five.

Former series Champion, Marshall Skinner from Marion, Arkansas led the next group of drivers in sixth place followed by Rookie of the Year contender, Justin Webb in seventh place. Webb was followed by the 2012 USCS Rookie of the Year, Jeff Willingham from Ripley, Mississippi in eighth place. Another Rookie of the Year contender, Curt Terrell from Bartlett, Tennessee followed Willingham in ninth place and ageless veteran Ray Bugg from Iuka, Mississippi who is on his farwell tour after 55 seasons of racing rounded out the top ten.

Derek Hagar started off the evening at the head of the pack with a fast time trial lap of 10.943 around the tacky Duck River Raceway Park ¼ mile racing surface. That was fast enough to best Super Late Model driver Vic Hill’s previous all-time track record of 12.171 set in Fall of 2012 by 1.228 seconds. In all 16 of the 20 USCS competitors eclipsed the old all-time mark.

Defending series Champion, Tim Crawley kicked of the evening’s first wheel-to-wheel competition with a win in the Hoosier Tire Speed Dash. Marshall Skinner won the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat.

Hello USCS Goodbye Track Record at Duck River Raceway Park on Saturday, April 20th

In order to give the fans on hand at Duck River Raceway Park on Saturday night (4/20) something else to talk about, the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour has added an additional element to Saturday nights program.

The USCS sprint car drivers will compete via the USCS time trial format on this Saturday night at Duck River Raceway Park. This format is used at all USCS Asphalt events and generally on the first night of a two-day show.

But, according to USCS Founder and President, Pete Walton "We just want to give the Duck River fans something to see and talk about and let them know how fast the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour winged sprint cars are really gonna' go at the Duck. I believe the all-time track record is held by Vic Hill with a lap of 12.10. I would really expect that to fall. These cars are usually a second to a second and a half faster than the Super Late Models. With the talent we have in this series, I would expect to see several drivers set a new all-time mark for Duck River Raceway Park if the track conditions are there for the speed' concluded Walton..

Under the USCS time trial format, every driver will time trial qualify. Following time trials and depending on the number of cars entered, either 4, 5 or 6 cars invert in their qualifying heat race order. The top finishing (4, 5 or 6) cars from the heats get their times back and then are scheduled to start the main event in that order.

EXCEPT their will still be a K&N Filters inversion draw for thew top six cars after all qualifying rounds to determine the final order for the front three rows in the main event.

The time trials for the Super Late Models and the USCS winged sprint cars will both occur early in the racing program, shortly after hot laps. Be there early for this part of the speed spectacle. Gates open Saturday at Duck River Raceway Park at 2:00pm...The drivers meeting is at 5:00pm and Hot ;laps are immediately thereafter. The time trials should start between 6:15 and 6:30 pm so come early!
