The event serves as round two of a five race USCS “Super Dirt Week” scheduled over the next week at five tracks all located in Arkansas. The 2014 version of the event brought 36 competitors to the facility to compete on the historic ¼ mile. One of its hometown favorites; Tim Crawley from nearby Benton, Arkansas, who was the 2012 USCS National Champion, won the 2014 contest.

The holiday week special event is expected to bring top winged outlaw style sprint car drivers from at least six states to the ¼ mile clay oval track located just off Interstate 30 West at the Alexander Road Exit 126 in Little Rock, Arkansas (near Benton).

The USCS winged sprint car race will award USCS National Championship points as well as USCS Mid-South Thunder regional series Championship points. The USCS Mid-South Thunder regional series primarily consists of races in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri and West Tennessee

Fans will be treated to an action packed USCS presented by K&N Filters sprint car racing program that will include test and tune hot laps followed by the evening's first sprint car race, the Hoosier Tire USCS Speed Dash that showcases the top six cars from the previous USCS main event in an edge-of-your-seat six-car shootout. This dash will be followed by a series of qualifying heat races and Last Chance/B-Main race(s). The evening’s grand finale will be the 30-lap USCS sprint car A-main event.

Also featured on the special holiday week racing program are three of the track’s most popular weekly racing divisions that will add some door-to-door and fender rubbing racing action to the event. Those divisions include the IMCA open wheel modifieds, the Bumper to Bumper Super Stocks and the track’s winged 600 mini sprints.

In addition to the racing action the event also features a huge professional FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR to celebrate our Nation’s freedom. USCS Founder and President said ”Last year’s fireworks at I-30 Speedway were breathtaking and the most exciting I’ve ever seen at a racing facility. All I can say is Wow!, Don’t miss this event, the fireworks are worth the price of admission alone.”

COMP Cams Interstate Cup Sprint Car Series Opens at I-30 this Saturday

Memphis, Tennessee (04/02/15) – Hopefully the third time will be the charm, and I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) will finally get to host the opener for the 2015 edition of the COMP Cams Interstate Cup presented by Dixon Road U-Pull-It this Saturday, April 4th.

After seeing the opening rounds claimed by rain on March 14th and March 28th, fans and racers are eagerly anticipating the lid lifter, which will be held this Saturday, April 4th.  For more information, please visit .

The COMP Cams Interstate Cup presented by Dixon Road U-Pull-It was created in 2011 to reward drivers for competing at both tracks.  A.G. Rains from West Memphis, Arkansas claimed the title in each of the first three years before seeing fellow West Memphis resident, Marshall Skinner dethrone him in 2014.

For 2015 the tracks have once again coincided their schedules to not run Winged 360 c.i. Sprint Cars on the same night to further their cooperation. Each weekly racing series point’s event through September 12th at each track will count toward a driver's point total in the program. Any special event that pays more than a weekly show does not count as a point's event for the series.

Drivers have no restrictions on how many races that they can miss at each facility to still be eligible for the season-ending point's money.  Points acquired in all races will count toward the final total.

The final payout for the series will pay ten places, and the minimum payout for the final COMP Cams Interstate Cup will be the following: 1)$2,000 2)$1,500 3)$1,000 4)$800 5)$700 6)$600 7)$500 8)$450 9)$350 10)$300 and as more sponsors are secured the payout may be increased.

COMP Cams has also posted the following contingency prizes for the top five:
1st - $1000 COMP Cams Gift Certificate PLUS Trophy Cup
2nd - $750 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
3rd - $500 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
4th - $250 COMP Cams Gift Certificate
5th - $125 COMP Cams Gift Certificate

In addition to money and contingencies, the program will reward provisionals.  The driver, highest in the final top ten standings in the point's program, who doesn't qualify for the 7th Annual Ralph Henson Memorial on Saturday, September 19th at I-30 Speedway will get a provisional starting spot in the main event. Similarly the driver highest in the top ten in the final points (who didn't use a provisional at the Ralph Henson Memorial), who doesn't qualify for the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway on Saturday, October 3rd will get a provisional starting spot for the main event.

Race fans can also donate money to the point's fund if they so choose.  For a $100 donation, a race fan can be the title sponsor on a Sprint Car Weekly Racing Series Event at either track, and 100% of that money will go into the point's fund.  For more information on sponsoring an event contact Ben Shelton at 901-335-3037 or .

The COMP Cams Interstate Cup would like to thank its sponsors, which include COMP Cams, Speed Mart Inc., Hoosier Racing Tires, I-30 Speedway, Riverside International Speedway, and Marketing Services.

I-30 Speedway Cancels Saturday’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series Event Due To Wet Conditions Following Winter Storms

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – March 17, 2015 - – Lingering wet conditions from the same winter storm systems that led to the cancellation of Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway'’s March 20 World of Outlaws Late Model Series event have forced officials from I-30 Speedway to also cancel the WoO LMS event scheduled for March 21 at I-30.

Large accumulations of snow that have slowly thawed and frequent rain have left the quarter-mile oval and its surrounding facility heavily saturated, with large portions of the track’s pit area inaccessible. With forecasts predicting more wet weather later in the week, track promoter Tracey Clay was forced to call off the event.

"“I want to thank Tracey and her father, Joe for their efforts to host this race,"” WoO LMS Series Director Tim Christman said. “"They'’ve always done everything possible to get our races in. Unfortunately, the harsh weather this winter has made it impossible for the track to host a major event this weekend.”"

In light of the cancellation, I-30 Speedway hopes to host an open practice on Sun., March 22 for its local divisions. More information is available by visiting

World of Outlaws Late Model Series competitors return to action at the Douglas Dodge Ram Trucks Illini 100 March 26-28 at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Ill. The blockbuster weekend features an open practice on Thurs., March 26 ahead of two separate WoO LMS programs on Fri., March 27 and Sat., March 28. Friday’s program features a 30-lap A-Main paying $6,000 to the winner, while Saturday’s main event winner will pocket a whopping $15,000.

General admission ticket prices for the Illini 100 are $25 for Friday and $35 for Saturday. Two-day tickets with a reserved seat are available in advance at the reduced price of $50. Two-day ticket prices at the gate will be $55 without reserved seating. Tickets are available now at

Short Track Nationals Slated for Final Weekend of October

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (January 27, 2015) – I-30 Speedway’s Short Track Nationals. It’s an event that race teams and race fans alike from all corners of the country eagerly anticipate each year.

And this year is no different, with the 28th version of the premier 360-ci Sprint Car event in the country set for October 28-31, 2015.

In what has become an annual pilgrimage to Little Rock, Ark., for many to determine bragging rights for the next twelve months, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell became the event’s 17th different winner this past October by defeating a field of competitors from all across the nation.

Bell joined a prestigious list of winners that includes names such as Kinser, Swindell and Wright along with current Outlaw regulars including Paul McMahan, Brad Sweet, Jason Johnson and Jason Sides among others.

Gary Wright ranks as the only four-time STN champion with triumphs in 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2004. Sammy Swindell added his third win in 2013 to previous scores in 1990 and 2011 to match Steve Kinser’s three STN wins (1988, 1989 and 1991) with two-time STN winners including McMahan (2002 and 2012) and Tony Bruce, Jr. (2008 and 2009).

In addition to Bell, others capturing STN honors on one occasion include Brad Sweet (2010), Jason Meyers (2007), Jason Johnson (2006), Tim Montgomery (2005), Jason Sides (2001), Mike Ward (2000), Tim Crawley (1998), Wayne Johnson (1997), Pete Butler (1996), Terry Gray (1994) and John Gerloff (1993).
