Winged sprint cars heading to Senoia
Wild and exciting winged outlaw sprint car racing will headline the two-day USCS Senoia Summer Nationals IV (2013) racing program at Senoia Raceway August 16 and 17. The United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters “Outlaw Thunder” Tour (www.uscsracing.com) roars into the high-banked 3/8-mile red clay oval for the 4th annual USCS Senoia Summer Nationals. This event is race number 23 and 24 on the 17th Anniversary schedule for the nationally touring USCS drivers.
This will be the one and only visit scheduled of the 2013 season for the USCS winged sprint cars to Senoia Raceway. These races will award national points as well as USCS Southern Thunder Tour regional series standings. The USCS Southern Thunder regional series consists of races in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Eastern Tennessee and both Carolinas.
The two-night special event is expected to bring top winged outlaw sprint car drivers from at least six 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 120 mph.
