Never before has a single facility hosted dirt and pavement events for the same USAC racing series on the same weekend! A brand-new dirt oval is being constructed inside the existing 3/8-mile paved oval and the July 6 races will be conducted on the paved oval, with the July 7 races being held on the dirt oval.
The Mopar USAC National Midgets and the USAC Midwest Ford Focus Midgets share the billing on this unique event.
â€śUSAC has a long and storied history but this will be a first for us,â€ť says USAC President/CEO Kevin Miller. â€śThe idea of a single facility hosting both dirt and pavement events for the same series presents a challenge for our participants while giving our race fans a truly unique racing experience. We are always looking for innovations in our motorsports programs and this could be an idea which could expand.â€ť
Plymouth Speedway Owner Ed Kennedy is ecstatic about the upcoming event: â€śI really enjoy the USAC events at Plymouth and weâ€™ve had some incredible racing in recent years. This program should offer race fans something theyâ€™ve never seen before and a weekend they will long remember.â€ť
Kyle Hamilton scored a Mopar D1/STARS Midget victory, James Robertson won a 100-lap Ford Focus Feature and Sam McGhee won a USAC Focus Young Gun race at Plymouth this season.
