INDIANAPOLIS – official series release —
USAC will return to the Northeast once again in 2015 for the ninth annual AMSOIL USAC Eastern Storm, opening at Grandview Speedway on June 2.
The Eastern Storm for the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series will continue with stops at the Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday night, June 3, New Egypt Speedway on Thursday night, June 4, Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 6 and Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday night, June 7.
Past Eastern Storm champions include Brady Bacon, Bryan Clauson, Levi Jones and Cole Whitt. Bacon is one driver who is already gearing up for the 2015 Eastern Storm as he has already confirmed plans to participate in 2015.
The USAC sprint cars and ARDC midgets will share the race card at the Grandview Speedway on June 2 when the Eastern Storm opens on the hill.
A big night of racing is planned for the Lincoln Speedway on June 3. The USAC sprint cars will have a full show plus their make-up portion of the rain out from 2014. The 360/358 Sprint Challenge will also be on the race card. The rain out portion of their show will include a B Main and the 25 lap, $2,500 to win main event, with the same payoff as posted for the 2014 event.
On Thursday night, June 4 New Egypt Speedway will host the USAC Eastern Storm. Friday night is an open date at this time. The USAC sprint cars will then invade Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 6. In the 2014 event, Bacon sizzled the fast Port Royal Speedway.
In 2014, rain was no friend to the Eastern Storm, also forcing a cancellation at the Susquehanna. In 2015, Susquehanna Speedway Park will close out the Eastern Storm on Sunday night June 7.
