2009 Sneak Preview Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Series Schedule
 

Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (November 26, 2008) While the 2008 season for the American Sprint Car Series was officially logged into the record books with the final Regional event of the season on November 15, activity in preparation for the 2009 season has been feverish for several months already.

 

And, while the 2009 schedule for the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series presented by K&N Filters is still a work in progress, a preliminary "sneak preview" of the 2009 slate was released from the series' Tulsa office today.

 

Currently, the series is slated to kick off the 2009 campaign with the Devil's Bowl Speedway Spring Nationals in Mesquite, TX, on March 20-21.  Thirty nights of action are already set for next year, with the season scheduled to conclude with I-30 Speedway's $15,000-to-win 22nd Annual Short Track Nationals in Little Rock, AR, on October 29-31.

 

Another ten to twelve confirmed events will be added to the schedule in the coming weeks as workable dates are determined, with ongoing discussions continuing with a number of other venues.

Drivers contending for the 2009 series title will be vying for a share of the $250,000 points fund, which will be distributed at season's end among the top 15 drivers in points.  The champion will collect a hefty $60,000.
