Officials from North Central Speedway have announced plans to bring the Upper Midwest Sprint Series to Brainerd.
At least four events are already slated on the one-third mile clay oval during the 2009 season.
UMSS founder and race director, Ron Bernhagen, is thrilled to have NCS included in the inaugural Sprint car campaign.
"This is an exciting step in the development of the UMSS," he said. "Thus far our first season has surpassed all expectations as far as number of events. Being able to showcase our budget and fan-friendly format in Brainerd should be a real treat for everyone."
June 13 will mark the initial NCS visit for the winged 360 Warriors.
The annual Kouba Memorial will bring the UMSS back to Brainerd for a July 4 fireworks spectacular.
Labor Day weekend will feature two complete shows for Sprint Cars when the UMSS becomes the main attraction in the annual Mighty Axe Nationals.
"We are pleased to bring the UMSS to our fans this summer," NCS promoter Tim Boeder said. "The principle idea behind the series is to bring a highly competitive, fan-friendly Sprint Car show to town while being able to keep costs at a minimum. Our fans will be treated to an incredible amount of action without having to pay the ticket prices associated with many other Sprint Car Shows."
The UMSS will offer a unique format for fans with plenty of driver/fan interaction throughout each program. Autograph sessions and kids activities will provide families with an inexpensive night at each UMSS event at NCS, located five miles south of Brainerd.
