Sprintacular Weekend on Tap for USAC Sprints July 5-6 at Lincoln Park Speedway!

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media

Putnamville, Indiana (July 4, 2024)………It’s the most Sprintacular time of the year!

The post-Independence Day boom takes us to not one, but two-straight USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship events on Friday-Saturday night, July 5-6, at Putnamville, Indiana’s Lincoln Park Speedway.

The 5/16-mile dirt oval they call The Capital of the Cushion is the playground for the 10th annual IndianaOpenWheel.com Bill Gardner Sprintacular, honoring the life and memory of Bill Gardner, who passed away in July of 2014.

Gardner was born and raised in Putnam County, Indiana, and practically grew up at Lincoln Park Speedway. Gardner co-owned a sign and graphics business, was a crewman for driver Brian Hayden and was the founder of www.indianaopenwheel.com.

The event culminates with a 30-lap, $5,000-to-win feature on Friday followed by a $10,000 winner’s share for Saturday’s 40-lap grand finale.

Seven past Sprintacular winners are expected to compete in this weekend’s event: Rocklin, California’s Robert Ballou (2015 & 2016); Cullman, Alabama’s Kevin Thomas Jr. (2017 & 2021); Ione, California’s Justin Grant (2018 & 2022); Princeton, Indiana’s Kyle Cummins (2019); Kansas, Illinois’ Shane Cottle (2020); Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon (2020 & 2023) and Greenfield, Indiana’s C.J. Leary (2021 & 2022).

Several more top star drivers will be vying for a first career Sprintacular victory, including USAC National Sprint Car point leader Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.), Daison Pursley (Locust Grove, Okla.), Mitchel Moles (Raisin City, Calif.) and Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.), all of whom reside in the top-10 of the series standings.
