Ballou Cleared to Race; Begins Season in this Weekend’s #LetsRaceTwo at Eldora

Robert Ballou, the 2015 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion, announced Thursday that he is cleared to race effectively immediately. He will make his return to the series this weekend behind the wheel of his own No. 12 at Eldora Speedway’s #LetsRaceTwo.
