United Sprint Car Series founder and President, Pete Walton said, ”We are very excited about this opportunity for our drivers and race teams to showcase their talents during this major racing event. A number of drivers in NASCAR’s top divisions excelled in sprint car racing previously. It will be an honor for the USCS to be racing in front of them and all the great fans at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Labor Day weekend. Fans who have never seen this type of racing are in store for an exciting evening on Friday, August 30th at AMS,” concluded Walton
Preliminary interest from sprint car competitors is extremely high for the AMS event. A field of some of the top winged sprint car drivers from across the nation are expected for the first-ever appearance of the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
