EAGLE, McCOOL, LAKESIDE HEARTLAND TOUR THIS WEEK;

CLAUSON, BACON SPLIT SPRINT WINS AT BLOOMINGTON, HAUBSTADT

The AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series invades America's heartland this week for a trio of events expected to weigh heavily on the 2015 championship.

Friday night's "Rumble at the Bullring" unfolds at Eagle (Neb.) Raceway while Saturday's race is at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Neb. Sunday night's "Weld Racing Spring Classic" is at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kans. All three races carry additional WAR sanction.

Chase Stockon of Elizabethtown, Ind. leads the standings after a third and a fifth in races last week at Bloomington and Haubstadt, Ind. He has a 15-point lead over Robert Ballou in the latest rankings.

Defending series champion Brady Bacon, a 2009 USAC Midget winner at McCool Junction, won Saturday night's "Spring Showdown" at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt. He led the final 27 laps to beat Ballou, Kyle Cummins, Brady Short and Stockon.

Bryan Clauson of Noblesville, Ind. won Friday night's 30-lapper at Bloomington Speedway. Jon Stanbrough took second ahead of Stockon, Tracy Hines and Bacon.

Dave Darland, whose 54 victories are the all-time series record, owns Eagle victories in USAC Sprints and Midgets and Hunter Schuerenberg won last year's Sprint outing at McCool Junction. Sunday's race at Lakeside is the first for USAC's Sprint cars in Kansas City since J.J. Yeley's victory in 2001. Darland stands fourth in the series points behind Stockon, Ballou and Bacon.

2015 AMSOIL USAC Sprint Car National Championship Points: 1-Chase Stockon-467, 2-Robert Ballou-452, 3-Brady Bacon-439, 4-Dave Darland-424, 5-Kevin Thomas Jr.-391, 6-Jon Stanbrough-374, 7-C.J. Leary-364, 8-Tracy Hines-342, 9-Justin Grant-315, 10-Kyle Cummins-310.

CRA BACK TO THE PAS MAY 2

VANDER WEERD TAKES PERRIS' "SO-CAL SHOWDOWN"

Former AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car Champions Damion Gardner and Mike Spencer continue their battle for the 2015 championship May 2 when the series returns to Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. The two are separated by just five points after taking second and third respectively in last Saturday night's "So-Cal Showdown" at the PAS.

Richard Vander Weerd of Visalia, Calif. remained unbeaten at Perris Saturday on "Power of Purple Night." Wheeling the Vander Weerd Construction/Battery Worx Maxim/Shark, he passed Spencer on lap eight and led the final 23 laps to beat Gardner, Spencer, Ryan Bernal and Austin Williams. The win left Vander Weerd sixth in the new standings.

Gardner and Spencer will also continue their mastery at the PAS May 2. Gardner, who has three series titles, has 32 wins there while Spencer, a five-time USAC/CRA king, has 25.

BLOOMINGTON, HAUBSTADT HOST SPRINTS FRIDAY, SATURDAY

Chase Stockon continues his drive to a USAC National Championship this weekend as the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Cars visit a pair of Indiana tracks. Friday night's race is at Bloomington Speedway and Saturday's "Spring Showdown" is at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt.

Stockon has a half-dozen "top-10" finishes in the first six races to forge an 11-point lead over runner-up Robert Ballou entering this week's activity. Despite a pair of seconds, Stockon continues to seek his first 2015 victory. Ballou scored a pair of wins in Florida and leads third-ranking driver Dave Darland by 13 points in the latest standings.

Darland, whose victory at Ocala, Fla. in February extended his all-time record to 23 consecutive years with at least one USAC National win, will try to extend his all-time leading USAC Sprint victory total which stands at 54.

Bryan Clauson won both Bloomington Sprint features last year while Daron Clayton won twice at Haubstadt and Ballou once.

Defending AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Champion Brady Bacon stands fourth in the points, 47 behind the leader after an Ocala victory and a pair of thirds.

2015 AMSOIL USAC Sprint Car National Championship Points: 1-Chase Stockon-352, 2-Robert Ballou-341, 3-Dave Darland-328, 4-Brady Bacon-305, 5-Kevin Thomas Jr.-305, 6-Jon Stanbrough-286, 7-C.J. Leary-284, 8-Justin Grant-267, 9-Chris Windom-236, 10-Tracy Hines-233.

FRIDAY'S KOKOMO MIDGET RAINED OUT; SATURDAY "ON"

Extremely wet grounds and flooding have forced a cancellation of Friday's opening night of the 2015 Kokomo Midget Grand Prix Honda USAC National Midget event at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway.

Favorable forecasts are prevalent for Saturday's scheduled race at the quarter-mile dirt oval and that event remains on the calendar.

The Kokomo Midget Grand Prix serves as the opening event on USAC's 2015 Honda National Midget calendar, which encompasses 14 different tracks in a half-dozen states. The series will also appear at Kokomo as part of the "Indiana Midget Week" in mid-June.

KOKOMO MIDGET "GRAND PRIX" THIS WEEKEND

Rico Abreu captivated race fans and participants alike with his 2014 Honda USAC National Midget championship. He swept last year's "Kokomo Midget Grand Prix" at the Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway. This year's series openers at the Kokomo oval unfold this Friday and Saturday.

The 18-slate National campaign kicks off with what promises to be a spectacular two-night program of races at one of America's premier short-track dirt ovals.

Bryan Clauson also scored a 2014 Midget win at Kokomo and this year's competition is again expected to start an extremely competitive title chase.

Kokomo's rich USAC Midget history spans 76 races dating back to USAC's initial year of operation in 1956. Mel Kenyon won seven times there and Rich Vogler won six. Active drivers with Kokomo Midget wins include Tracy Hines, Brady Bacon, Clauson, Michael Pickens, Dave Darland, Christopher Bell and Abreu.

Abreu set the one-lap Kokomo Midget track record of 13.009 seconds in 2013.
