After missing the previous race, Devin Feger came
back to continue his outstanding 2016 campaign by
winning once again at Peoria Speedway. After
starting on the inside of the second row, Feger
passed leader Daltyn England on lap 3, and was able
to cruise to the double checkered flags. Rookie
Daltyn England proved he will be a force to be
reckoned with by picking up an impressive second
place finish. Veteran driver Tim Brannam gave
England a run for his money but ultimately came home
in third. Billy Brickley and Ron Brannam rounded out
the top 5.

the latest information from Mike Long regarding the
upcoming USAC sanctioning
you to all for the strong participation in the last
three conference calls. We have accomplished our

attached. These will now be packaged as a National
rule book and redistributed when completed.
want to thank Levi Jones for spending time with us
to answer questions and announce the $10K points

groups/clubs will maintain internal control of their
series, including but not limited to all financials,
tech, procedural calls (line ups) and scheduling

penalty for not doing so
USAC registered drivers will be eligible for
National Points in sanctioned event.
will open Jan. 1, 2017
will be awarded for actual finishing position only.
are weighted by total car count per race

/ clubs, with registered drivers, will be required
to schedule a minimum of 10 USAC sanctioned races
are permitted to hold events outside of USAC
races will be noted upon issue of season schedule

valid Certificate of Insurance (COI) for a 1 million
dollar general liability policy covering the entire
year. All scheduled tracks will have their insurance
provider email this to Levi at USAC.
fund breakdown (thank you all for your ideas – I
merged them below)

in communication with Levi and look forward to
seeing you all next Saturday morning at the Museum

Guide to Getting Started.
Mini Sprint racing is one of the fastest growing segments of
open wheel racing. The class which features open wheel
racers similar in size to a full-size midget, but powered by
a motorcycle engine, have become a popular stepping stone
for today's youth as well as a economical playground for the
weekend warrior. The cars run on both paved and dirt
ovals around the world with the heaviest concentration in
the United States.
