NORTH VERNON MIDGET/FOCUS “DOUBLEHEADER” MOVED TO JULY 14


The USAC Mopar National Midget and Midwest Ford Focus Midget “doubleheader” at Twin Cities Raceway Park in North Vernon, Ind. has been rescheduled for Tuesday night, July 14. The event, which was originally rained out June 11 and slated for August 14, will now fall between segments of this year’s “Indiana Sprint Week,” which runs from July 10-18.


 


“We felt that the new July 14 date would be more conducive to attracting teams and fans,” said USAC Competition Director Jason McCord. “The July 14 date will augment an already-popular nine-night period which features some of the most intense dirt-track racing on the USAC calendar.”


 


“Indiana Sprint Week” opens July 10 at Lawrenceburg and continues July 11 at Gas City and July 12 at Kokomo, then resumes July 15 at Terre Haute, July 16 at Boswell, July 17 at Bloomington and July 18 at Haubstadt.


 


The races at the 3/8-mile dirt Twin Cities Raceway Park are the first there since Mat Neely’s 2006 “Indiana Sprint Week” victory.
