THE STORYLINES: I-55 RACEWAY USAC SPRINTS ON SUNDAY

Pevely, Missouri (June 5, 2020).........The capper of a doubleheader USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car weekend takes us to Federated Auto Parts Raceway on Sunday, June 7. An array of storylines are at the forefront and here are a few key items you need, must and should keep at least one of your eyes on this weekend as the series hustles on the 1/3-mile high-banked dirt oval. RETURN OF COURTNEY The mystery captured the imagination earlier this week as 43 of the 44 spots became filled for Sunday's round at I-55. Who would it be to file that final entry? As it turned out, it was none other than 2018 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion Tyler Courtney and Clauson-Marshall Racing who became the 44th entry. The defending USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget champ raced to a recent victory with the Midgets on May 22 at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla., and also captured a winged sprint car triumph at St. Francois County Raceway in Missouri just prior. This marks the 26-time USAC Sprint winner's season debut with the division. THOMAS OUT FOR REDEMPTION The lone past visit by the series to I-55 came in 2018, a barnburner between former roommates Jason McDougal and Kevin Thomas Jr. that saw six lead changes in a 30-lap span, including the final one, with just four laps remaining, as McDougal got by Thomas for the win. Thomas, of Cullman, Ala., is up for a little bit of redemption this time around after winning his heat race, leading 12 laps before finishing 2nd in the 2018 race. I-55 MIDGET EXPERIENCE While there's only been one previous appearance by the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars at I-55 in 2018, midgets have made the pilgrimage to the racy venue over the past six seasons under the POWRi banner, and a couple handfuls of the very same individuals you'll see on Sunday in a USAC Sprint Car were on hand in a midget. Pocahontas, Illinois driver Zach Daum won at I-55 in a midget in August 2016. Just last August, defending USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champ C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) ventured to I-55 for a pair of midget races, finishing 3rd in the feature on both nights. Two-time USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champ and current point leader Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) drove from 10th to 2nd in a midget at I-55 in April 2018. Fellow USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion Dave Darland (Lincoln, Ind.) finished a solid 3rd in August of 2016 while Courtney's lone I-55 midget experience was a 16th place result in April 2018. The 2018 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget driving champion, Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.), started on the pole and finished a best of 3rd at I-55 in April 2018. Arlington, Texas native and top Rookie thus far in the USAC Sprints, Anton Hernandez, was 12th in 2015. Kory Schudy of Springfield, Mo. earned a best I-55 midget finish of 9th in August 2018. Willow Branch, Indiana's Isaac Chapple, the 2016 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year, was 16th in 2015. 71p GETTIN' IT DONE The same Daigh/Phillips Motorsports No. 71p ride that Jason McDougal used to score his first career victory at I-55 in 2018 is now in the hands of Carson Short (Marion, Ill.). While Short has already reached USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car victory lane once before, in 2016 at Tri-State Speedway, in his family owned No. 21, he's seeking that first one aboard the 71p. Interestingly enough, the team has won the most recent USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car races at both of this weekend's venues, including Saturday's track, 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa., with driver Dave Darland. SAMPLING OF I-55 SPRINT SUCCESS Including Thomas, 14 of the 22 starters from 2018's USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car debut at I-55 are pre-entered for this Sunday's event. Robert Ballou, the Rocklin, Calif. native and 2015 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion, is returning to USAC competition after missing the past year due to a serious arm injury suffered in a Sprint Car accident at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway. Ballou set the standard at I-55 in his 2018 heat race, establishing a USAC track record for 8 laps at 1:44.38 before finishing 3rd in the feature. Fort Branch, Indiana's Chase Stockon led early in the 2018 affair at I-55, controlling 11 laps early, then two more during mid-race to lead a race-high 13 laps total before, ultimately, finishing 9th. Korey Weyant, great nephew of National Midget Hall of Famer and four-time Indianapolis 500 starter Chuck Weyant, was the hard charger at I-55 in 2018, rising up to drive from 18th to 10th in the final tally. Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.), a recent USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget winner at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. on May 23, took 5th in 2018. Defending USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champ C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) placed 6th, USAC Triple Crown champion Dave Darland (Lincoln, Ind.) 7th, 2017 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car titlist Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) was 8th, 2016 series Rookie of the Year Isaac Chapple (Willow Branch, Ind.) was 11th and 2014 & 2016 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champ Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) notched 20th. Mario Clouser (Auburn, Ill.) was 12th in that 2018 race while Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.) was 13th, Patrick Budde (Bartelso, Ill.) was 16th and Mitch Wissmiller (Saybrook, Ill.) 22nd. "SHOW ME" THE MONEY Robert Ballou (2012 at Grain Valley, Mo.) and Tyler Courtney (2017 at Moberly, Mo.) have each found victory lane in the "Show Me State" of Missouri in their USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car careers. They'll both be in action Sunday at I-55. As far as teams, Daigh/Phillips Motorsports won with Jason McDougal at I-55 in 2018. TOPP Motorsports did likewise with Courtney in 2017 at Moberly, a car now driven by Justin Grant. The Fox Brothers No. 53, now driven by Brayden Fox, was the victor at Grain Valley in 2011 with driver Jon Stanbrough. No team, however, owns more USAC Sprint wins in Missouri than Dynamics, Inc/Hoffman Auto Racing with four, the team with which Brady Bacon will race for this coming Sunday. The first Hoffman/Dynamics win in Missouri arrived in 1989 (with a wing) with driver Rich Vogler in at Moberly. Steve Butler returned the team to victory lane a year later in 1990 on the pavement at I-70 Speedway in Odessa. Butler did it again in 1991 at I-44 Speedway in Lebanon. Jerry Coons Jr. picked up the most recent for the winningest USAC Sprint team, back on the dirt of Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon in 2006. RECORD WATCHING With one more start this weekend, Brady Bacon would move into sole possession of 10th all-time on the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car starts list at 334, surpassing 1977-81-82 champion Sheldon Kinser. Two more starts this weekend would elevate Chase Stockon into a tie with 1973 USAC Sprint champ Rollie Beale for 12th all-time in starts at 319. It would also extend his record streak of consecutive starts with the series to 298, just two shy of becoming the first to reach the 300 mark. One more start would be Chris Windom's 148th consecutive in the USAC Sprint division, the fourth-best streak of all-time behind Chase Stockon (296), Levi Jones (284) and Dave Darland (204). Windom became the fifth driver ever to break the 400 USAC Sprint start mark in the season finale last year at Arizona Speedway. C.J. Leary would move past both Bryan Clauson and into a tie with Damion Gardner for 21st all-time (262 starts) with two more feature starts this weekend. Also, two more starts this weekend would move Justin Grant past 1972 USAC Sprint champ Sammy Sessions as well as 1969 & 71 USAC Sprint champion driver Gary Bettenhausen into 24th all-time in that department. Another start on Sunday for Tyler Courtney would mark his 178th career USAC Sprint start, moving him past 1986-87-88-90 series champ Steve Butler on the all-time list for 47th all-time. Two starts for Scotty Weir in this weekend's events would be his 146th and past Dave Peperak for 62nd all-time in USAC Sprint starts. Two starts for Isaac Chapple, which would put him at 120, would move him past Lee Kunzman for 75th all-time in USAC Sprint starts. For Carson Short, another two starts this weekend would put him at 92 career with the USAC National Sprint Cars. That would put him right inside the top-100 and alongside 1984-85 series champion Rick Hood. Spectator tickets are on sale for the Sunday, June 7, USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car race at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, exclusively at http://usactickets.com.

THE STORYLINES: 34 RACEWAY USAC SPRINTS ON SATURDAY

West Burlington, Iowa (June 5, 2020).........The storylines for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars' first visit to West Burlington, Iowa's 34 Raceway this Saturday, June 6, are plentiful. With a long wait of nearly four months since the last time we saw them in action, there's no more waiting to be had. So, let's get right to it. RUST VS. REST During an unprecedented time for the series with a hiatus of 112 days between USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car events, how will drivers and teams fare after such a long layoff? Basically, it's been another offseason to endure these past four months after the regularly scheduled three-month offseason during the winter months. Some of Saturday's driver lineup have been able to compete and win in the meantime, such as Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.), who captured the second night of the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget T-Town Midget Showdown at Oklahoma's Port City Raceway on May 23 as well as a POWRi Midget feature in Grain Valley, Mo. the very next night. Same for Zach Daum (Pocahontas, Ill.) and Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.), who captured POWRi Midget victories at Grain Valley and Oklahoma's I-44 Riverside Speedway, respectively. Not much rust, if any, were shown by them and others who have copious amounts of dirt track racing experience. For some others, it may take a few laps to get back into the comfort groove, but the rust issue has seemed minimal to this point. But, like every "new" season, there'll be things teams will continue to work on getting ironed out as they get back on track. BALLOU BACK 357 days since his last USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car start, "The Madman" Robert Ballou returns to competition with USAC Saturday at 34 Raceway. The Rocklin, Calif. driver is back after being sidelined for nearly a year following a broken arm suffered during a sprint car crash at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway in June of 2019, a race in which he won! The 2015 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion driver and owner and 29-time feature winner with the series, has been in competition the last couple of weeks in a winged sprint car in Pennsylvania. LEARY RETURNS TO THE 30 Defending USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion C.J. Leary will be sporting a new, but familiar number this weekend as the Greenfield, Ind. driver will be back behind the wheel of the family-owned Leary Racing No. 30, the same team and car number that the 2019 series champ raced to six of his nine career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victories. Leary will retain the services of 2019 USAC Chief Mechanic of the Year Davey Jones as the crew chief. Leary had competed in the first two events of the 2020 season at Ocala, Fla. for Gene Gile Racing, accruing a Fatheadz Eyewear fast qualifying time on the second night of the season and brought home finishes of third and seventh in his two outings, and now resides fourth in the standings coming in. 3-IN-A-ROW FOR BACON? No driver has ever won three consecutive features to begin a USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season. None. Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Brady Bacon aims to become the first after already doubling up with two-straight wins in the first two events of 2020 in Ocala, Fla. Only eight times has a driver even won two consecutive to start a USAC National Sprint Car season, and none in a decade prior to Bacon this season. Both of his two victories required yeoman's work from the two-time series champ (2014 & 16) after starting 9th each night. DARLAND'S 34 PROWESS Dave Darland (Lincoln, Ind.), the 1999 USAC Sprint champion, possesses the one-lap track record in both the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car and USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget at 34 Raceway. The series' all-time winningest driver at 62 victories and a National Sprint Car Hall of Famer to boot, he's also led 37 of a possible 60 laps at 34 Raceway in USAC Sprint competition at 34 Raceway, winning in 2013 and was leading when encountering a mechanical issue in 2010. DAIGH-PHILLIPS STRONG AT 34 The car that Darland raced to a new track record and victory at 34 Raceway in 2013 was the Daigh/Phillips Motorsports No. 71p. In fact, the team has won the most recent USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car races at both of this weekend's venues, including Sunday's track, Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, with driver Jason McDougal. Nowadays, the seat belongs to Carson Short (Marion, Ill.) who has two races under his belt with the team in February at Ocala. The pairing showed improvement from one night to the next, qualifying 4th and finishing 6th in the feature, and could be a force this weekend. WINDOM KNOCKING ON THE DOOR Chris Windom has knocking all over the door for a breakthrough USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car victory at 34 Raceway. Not only did he finish 2nd in the feature behind Levi Jones in 2010, he was the runner-up again to Darland in 2013. He's been strong and consistent with his new Hayward Motorsports sprinter thus far in 2020, clicking off fast time in the opener and scoring finishes of 5th and 2nd to possess 2nd in the standings coming in. 34 EXPERIENCE ABOUNDS Although it's been seven years since the last USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car visit to 34 Raceway, a number of drivers can count on their little bit of USAC experience at the track to help them navigate through Saturday night's festivities. In addition to Darland and Windom, Ballou was 5th there in 2013. Bacon led the first 13 laps of the 2013 event, but a broken rear axle suffered while leading relegated him to a 19th place finish. Cullman, Alabama's Kevin Thomas Jr. was 9th in 2013. Ludlow, Illinois native Steve Thomas was 13th in 2013. Terry Babb (Decatur, Ill.) had a career best USAC night there in 2010, recording fast qualifying time and finishing 5th in the feature. Patrick Budde (Bartelso, Ill.) was 16th in 2010. HELLO GOODNIGHT The Goodnight racing team has entered two cars for this Saturday at 34 Raceway, one for 2016 Gas City USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car winner Scotty Weir (Marion, Ind.) and one for Matt Goodnight (Winchester, Ind.). The team was a force with Darland behind the wheel of the Goodnight No. 39 in 2010, qualifying 5th and leading the first 20 laps of the 30-lap feature before a mechanical issue plagued the car while leading with less than 10 laps to go. CAR COUNT BOOM It's been a long wait, and drivers are eager to get back on the track. Saturday at 34 Raceway presents one of the first opportunities for many, and first for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars in four months. The previous two USAC Sprint events at the track have resulted in car counts of 20 and 22. This weekend's confirmed pre-entry list has doubled those numbers with 44 drivers and cars expected! HERNANDEZ LEADS ROOKIE RACE The race for USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year is young. Anton Hernandez (Arlington, Texas) was mightily impressive at Ocala, Fla. in February, becoming the first driver since Jason McDougal in 2018 to finish within the top-8 in his first ever series start. He leads all Rookies thus far, with additional entries coming this Saturday from Sterling Cling (Tempe, Ariz.), Chris Phillips (Plainfield, Ind.), Anthony D'Alessio (Apollo Beach, Fla.), Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.), among others. RETURN OF THE SAVAGE It's been seven years since "The Savage" Kurt Gross last made a USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature lineup. For the first time in quite a while, he appears on the pre-entry list for a series event. The fuel dealer out of Washington, Ind., Gross will be behind the wheel of the No. 1x in each of this weekend's events. It's a doubleheader USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car weekend this coming Saturday, June 6, at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa and Sunday, June 7, at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55!
