OSKY INFO HUB: Front Row & Ultimate Challenges, Aug. 6-7!

Oskaloosa IA (8/2/12) by DarinShort.com. A rare alignment of the “best of both worlds” in Sprint Car racing will converge upon Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa; thus creating a “Sprint Car racing epicenter” during the 17th Annual Musco Lighting Front Row Challenge (FRC) and 11th Annual Casey’s General Stores Ultimate Challenge (UC) this coming Monday August 6th and Tuesday August 7th.

Both events are being held during the Cox Design and Metal Fabrication Inc. Southern Iowa Sprintweek.

Here are quick reference points that every race team and race fan needs to know.

Schedule & Format:

Monday, August 6th – 17th Annual Musco Lighting Front Row Challenge (FRC) featuring a complete racing program for the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series competing for $5,000 to win – or $50,000 to win from the back! And for the first time, the Monday program will also feature a preliminary night for Tuesday’s Ultimate Challenge for non-winged Sprint Cars – so race fans will get a rare chance to see the best of both worlds of 410 Sprint Car divisions on the same night for the price of one! The top two finishers of the non-winged USAC feature will lock into Tuesday night’s Ultimate Challenge feature race. Sammy Swindell has won the FRC the past three years in a row. There are no additional support divisions racing, this is a sprint car-only show.

Tuesday, August 7th – 11th Annual Casey’s General Stores Ultimate Challenge (UC) presented by Searsboro Telephone Company, with the winner of the non-winged USAC Sprint Car feature race taking home a whopping $15,000! A complete program will be on tap for the USAC Sprint Cars; plus for the first time, the Hinchman Racewear Winged 305 Sprint Cars will join the night’s racing program and will run heats and a championship feature. Young Kyle Larson took home the UC honors in 2011, and fans can expect another top-flight group of the world’s best non-winged sprint drivers for 2012. There are no additional support divisions racing, this is a sprint car-only show.
