Saluda, VA. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Officials at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway are anxiously awaiting August 19th, the day that the 27th Annual USA 100™ will be run at the ½ mile speed plant in beautiful Jamaica, VA. The $65,000 one day show has moved to VMS this year for the first time with the blessing of the event originator Ernie Shelton, President of Tylerco Group USA, LLC, and Racing America Newspaper. In another first, it is the first time the event has been sanctioned by any organization; this year’s edition will fly under the Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MACS) banner.

Clarke Sawyer, General Manager indicated, “If you look at the past winner’s of this event, it is a who’s-who among dirt late model racing. We are confident that between the MACS Series, VMS, and Mr. Shelton we can all help restore the luster to the USA 100 TM.”

As to having the MACS Series as the sanction of this event, “We couldn’t be more pleased to be involved with Jeff, Andy and Matt as they bring their Series back to our facility for the seventh time. We are equally excited about the purse being offered, it is a tremendous one day show”, summarized Sawyer.

Track owner Bill Sawyer indicated his sentiments; “We are pleased to be bringing this event to Virginia Motor Speedway. I believe Clarke and his staff can provide a facility for this event to once again raise the event to the prominence that it once held. With the Geesey brother’s organization as well as the history of this event we are certainly proud to have the opportunity to showcase our facility with such a time honored race.”

Shelton interjected about this trademarked event moving to VMS, “Excitement, that’s what I can say about the 27th USA 100TM being run in 2006 at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway. At VMS you have a state of the art facility that is one of the best in the nation. Taking the USA 100TM to a venue such as VMS is a perfect marriage, this race will be one that race fans mark on their calendar as a must see race for years to come.”

The format will find time trails setting Twin $1000 to win, 25-lap qualifying events. The top 12 drivers from each of those will advance to the final 50-lap segment of the show paying $10,000 to-win.

A strong contingent of local and regional drivers will compete for the top prize with a few of the previous USA 100TM winners guaranteed to be in attendance including Mike Balzano, Denny Chamberlain and Chuck Harper, who all coincidentally are current or previous MACS Champions as well. Expect to also see regional powerhouse drivers like Booper Bare, Ricky Elliott, Jeremy Miller, Jimmy Bernheisel, G.R. Smith and a host of others competing against the MACS regulars for the $10,000 top prize.

Previous USA 100TM winners include: Steve Lucas (’05, ’99, ‘95); Rod Evans (’04); 2003 — no race; 2002 — no race; 2001 — no race; Chuck Harper (’00); Denny Chamberlain (’98); Mike Balzano (’97 and ‘87); Henry Hornsby Jr. (‘96); Donnie Moran (’94); Scott Bloomquist (’93-‘92); Billy Moyer (’91); Harold Redman Sr. (’90); Rod Evans and Harold Redman Sr. (Twin 50’s) (’89); Timmy Newman (only 88 laps) (’88); 1986 — no race; 1985 — no race; 1984 — no race; Larry Moore (’83 and ‘80); Delmas Conley (’82 and ‘79); Dickie Bartusiak (’81); Larry Cantley (’78); Gene McNeely (’77).
