Superior, Wisc. - The cars and stars of the AMSOIL National USAC Sprint Car Series are set to invade the 3/8 mile red clay AMSOIL Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin for the first time ever on Friday, June 20th along with a full program of WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds and Pure Stocks.

The 410 USAC Sprint Cars compete 10 months out of the year from Florida in February to Arizona in November and cover much of the United States during their ten state, thirty seven event tour and their stop in Superior will make their northern most stop on their yearlong tour.

USAC veterans Brady Bacon, Bryan Clauson and Dave Darland have each won multiple main events so far on the 2014 USAC tour, while Chase Stockon, Hunter Schuerenberg, Daron Clayton, Tracy Hines and Justin Grant have also each notched a single victory so far on tour. Bacon leads Darland by 44 points heading into the event in Superior.
