Tony Hulman Classic Postponed Due to Rain

The first of three nights of racing for USAC’s “The Week of Indy” has been postponed due to steady rainfall in Western Indiana. Wednesday’s 47th Annual “Tony Hulman Classic” was set to bring in 30+ USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars. The event will be rescheduled.

Two dates are being considered and officials are checking to confirm which one will be best. The new date will likely be released at the Hoosier Hundred on Thursday.

The “Week of Indy” will now get underway on Thursday, May 25 with the Hoosier Hundred featuring the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series presented by TRAXXAS at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, which has a much improved forecast.

Hoosier State Dirt / Pavement Doubleheader Awaits Silver Crown Drivers Thurs.-Fri.

What makes the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series so fascinating is its diversity. The 11-race schedule alternates throughout the season at venues ranging from dirt tracks located on the nation’s state fairgrounds with classic covered grandstands to paved surfaces that offer luxury suites and skyboxes.

On the track, a Silver Crown series title requires a driver to be readily adaptable to changing conditions and environments during a single 100-lap race, let alone a full season.

There are those who run for a championship, then there are dirt specialists and pavement specialists. In each race, drivers with those attributes will overlap as they compete for supremacy of that particular track on that particular night.

Ballou Goes for Unprecedented 3-in-a-Row Wednesday in 47th Hulman Classic

Two weeks ago, in his return to the cockpit of a USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car for the first time in eight months, Robert Ballou made the contingent on hand stand up and take notice that he hadn’t missed a beat.

His second race back in Eldora Speedway’s #LetsRaceTwo resulted in a commanding victory and placed him right at the top of the totem pole of favorites heading into this Wednesday night’s “Tony Hulman Classic” at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track.

It was a moment that recalled some of the greatest USAC comebacks seen in recent history such as Lee Kunzman’s National Midget win at Tri-County Speedway in Cincinnati in 1971, where he returned to victory in his first race after suffering a broken neck, arm and severe burns in a sprint crash at Missouri’s I-70 Speedway in 1970. Or Pancho Carter’s return after severe lower extremity injuries in a testing crash at Phoenix, in which he won his first two USAC Sprint Car appearances at Indianapolis Raceway Park and Winchester (Ind.) Speedway after a five-month layoff.

Santos Returns to Form Heading into Friday’s Carb Night Classic USAC Silver Crown Race

Indianapolis Raceway Park, O’Reilly Raceway Park or Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis. No matter which name it has been called throughout its 57-year history, there are distinct eras at the .686-mile paved oval which have been defined by the domination of drivers who proved to be nearly unbeatable in USAC competition.

In the last 20 years alone, Mike Bliss, Dave Steele, Tracy Hines and the current authority displayed by brothers Tanner and Kody Swanson, have each reigned supreme for a period of time at LOR. They are among a set of drivers that, when you saw their team unload their Midget, Sprint Car or Silver Crown in the pit area, it was nearly a foregone conclusion that, barring unforeseen circumstances, the race for the win at LOR would have to go through them.

Coming into the Friday, May 26 “Carb Night Classic” for the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series presented by TRAXXAS at Lucas Oil Raceway, we are reminded of the command of the mantle that Bobby Santos had for a stretch during the late 2000s/early 2010s. The Franklin, Massachusetts native began 2006 with his first LOR victory in the “Night Before the 500” USAC National Midget race and, in July, won the first of his three career USAC National Sprint Car features at the track. And it came in spectacular fashion.

On Friday, May 19, May the Showdown begins at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois with the first USAC National Sprint/Midget doubleheader held at the same track on the same night since 2010.

River Town Showdown Border War Brings USAC to Illinois and Missouri

In 1804, Lewis and Clark departed from the eastern edge of the Mississippi River to begin their expedition of the newly-acquired land to the west.

Two-hundred and thirteen years later, names like Justin Grant, Chad Boespflug, Chris Windom and Robert Ballou depart their homelands to explore uncharted and long-lost lands with the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship while Tanner Thorson, Brady Bacon, Spencer Bayston and Jerry Coons, Jr. navigate toward the Arch for their annual trek to the Illinois/Missouri state line for a USAC National Midget clash at the river.

The first stop of the “River Town Showdown” brings a USAC National Sprint Car and National Midget doubleheader to one track for one night for the first time since 2010 at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois.

Tri-City has become a traditional stop for the USAC National Midgets over the past several years. Even though Tanner Thorson claims Minden, Nevada as him hometown, he may as well have claimed a second permanent residence in Granite City, Illinois where he has spent his last five visits to the three-eighths-mile dirt oval in victory lane.

The Madman is Back; Ballou Returns to Victory Lane at Eldora After 8-Month Recovery

Rossburg, Ohio — Thursday, he was medically cleared. Friday, he was back in a racecar. Saturday, he was back in victory lane.

The timeline of events that led to Ballou’s triumphant return to the top after an agonizing eight-month recovery from serious neck injuries sustained in a racing accident last September is as remarkable as it comes.

The storybook journey took the Rocklin, California native and 2015 USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Champion to the front of the field on lap 18 of the 30-lap feature Saturday on night two of #LetsRaceTwo at Eldora Speedway after chasing down Chris Windom in lapped traffic to capture his first win in nearly a year.

Grant Guides the Way to Victory On Night One of #LetsRaceTwo at Eldora

Rossburg, Ohio — Eldora Speedway is the venue the Justin Grant/Sam McGhee Motorsports tandem truly kicked into gear last September as they raced to their first USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship feature win.

On Friday’s night one of #LetsRaceTwo, the two showed that the magic touch from eight months ago at the Big E has no signs of wearing off as they raced to their second USAC victory in as many tries at the western Ohio dirt oval.

It was the third series victory for driver Justin Grant in 2017 after a season-opening triumph in Ocala, Florida and an April score in Plymouth, Indiana in the Sam McGhee/Mike McGhee & Associates – Brown & Miller Racing Solutions/Maxim/Foxco. It was also the third career Eldora victory for Grant, a driver who is quick to pass the credit for his prowess at Eldora to the 17-year-old McGhee who turns the wrenches on the No. 11.

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.

His comeback closes an eight-month recovery from injuries he suffered in a vicious USAC/CRA Sprint Car crash in September of 2016 at California’s Calistoga Speedway during the “Louie Vermeil Classic.”

After flipping and hitting the top of the turn one catch fence, the 28-year-old Ballou estimates his car fell 15-18 feet before contacting the track surface. Among his injuries were a C2 fracture in his neck, a burst fracture of the C7 and a compression fracture of T8 vertebrae.

Grant and McGhee Stay On a Tear with Early Season Roll

Since Justin Grant and Sam McGhee Motorsports joined up in August of 2016, the pair has seen their level of success soar to a new stratosphere.

When the two knocked down a non-sanctioned win in their first race together at Bloomington Speedway eight months ago, then followed it up with two-straight top-three finishes at the Badlands, you just had the feeling this was a dream pairing in the making.

When their formation resulted in a dominating performance at Eldora Speedway’s “4-Crown Nationals” last September, you just knew this dream was becoming a reality.

In the 16 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car starts the 26-year-old Grant and McGhee, the 17-year-old mechanical prodigy, have teamed up, they’ve earned an average finish of 3.7. This year alone, that average has peaked to its current 2.3 through six starts, which includes a season-opening victory at “Winter Dirt Games” in Ocala, Florida.

Grant Breathes Easy with Victory in USAC Sprints’ First Pilgrimage to Plymouth

Plymouth, Indiana………Early on in Justin Grant’s sprint car racing career, a fellow competitor told him that he wouldn’t last more than eight laps without consciously remembering to breathe while he was racing.
Justin heeded that advice, and a handful of years later, the Ione, California native is finding the greatest success of his driving career. He could breathe easy after all was said and done Friday night after holding off a late-race charge from Chad Boespflug while mired in lapped traffic to collect his second series victory of the season in the first-ever visit by the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship to Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway.
The win came as a sigh of relief to Grant after a breathtaking moment in ProSource Qualifying that almost ended his night before it even began.

Throughout its history, the United States Auto Club has been a party to a multitude of intense rivalries. None are more revered than the “Gary and Larry Show” that took the USAC Sprint Car division by storm between 1968 to 1971.

In that four-year stretch, Gary Bettenhausen and Larry Dickson dominated the series like never seen before or since. In fact, the duo won nearly half the series races run in that span and took turns alternating series titles, with Larry winning in 1968 and 1970 with Gary taking the crown in 1969 and 1971. Each year that Gary or Larry was the champ, the other finished as runner-up in the standings.

Perhaps there has been no match that compares to the prolonged run of the “Gary and Larry Show” over the past five decades, but this past weekend, this generation’s greatest USAC Sprint Car rivalry was on full display – Chad Boespflug versus Chris Windom.

Windom Turns the Tide, Tames Boespflug to Take Tri-state’s Spring Showdown

Haubstadt, Indiana — One night after victory slipped through his fingers and into the hands of Chad Boespflug during a spectacular late-race duel at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway, Chris Windom wouldn’t let opportunity escape his grasp once again in Saturday night’s “Spring Showdown” at Tri-State Speedway, co-sanctioned by USAC and MSCS.

However, an average finish of 12th over 13 career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car starts at Tri-State didn’t bode well for Windom’s odds coming into the event at the quarter-mile paperclip in southern Indiana.

But stats are just that. Stats. They are simply numbers that tell of what has occurred in the past, but are not the be-all, end-all figurative crystal ball that foretells what the future holds.

Boespflug Bests Windom in Classic Battle of Bloomington

Bloomington, Indiana — On a restart two-thirds of the way into Friday night’s 30-lap USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship feature at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway, Chad Boespflug found himself playing defense on Chris Windom.

Some say defense wins championships, but in auto racing, a driver has to be on the offensive. And that’s exactly what the Hanford, California native did after seeing his lead slip away on the 22nd lap. Down the stretch, Boespflug attacked the topside and went after Windom, instigating a compelling, five-lap, hair-raising wheel-to-wheel showdown in which the two were locked into a constant side-by-side battle.

After ripping off lap-after-lap that appeared as if he was on a single-car qualifying run, Boespflug emerged ahead of Windom on the white flag lap, leading the final two circuits to take his first career Bloomington victory and first as a driver for the legendary Hoffman Auto Racing/Dynamics, Inc. team.
