NEW RIDES ABOUND FOR TAMPA SPRINT OPENERS
Several drivers will be in new or relatively new seats when the 2010
Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car Series arrives at East Bay Raceway Park in
Gibsonton, Fla. for the “Bubba Army Sprint Nationals” February 8-10.
Dave Darland, Bryan Clauson, Tracy Hines, Chris Windom, Cole Carter,
Kyle Cummins and Justin Grant are among early entries who will be “sorting
out” new rides in the three-night non-winged spectacular at the 3/8-mile
dirt oval on the south side of Tampa.
Darland will make his first appearance in the Keith Kunz sprinter in
six years, while Clauson hops into the RWB Motorsports #2B vacated by
Darland after the 2009 season. Hines will pilot an entry for Bob Parker, for
whom he drove selected Midget races in 2009. Cole Carter and Kyle Cummins
are entered in Steve Stapp entries and Justin Grant makes his debut in the
Baldwin Brothers entry. Carter’s father Pancho and uncle Dana both piloted
Stapp entries during their USAC Sprint car careers.
The “Bubba Army Sprint Nationals” are part of the track’s 34th
Winternationals and mark the first time USAC Sprint cars have raced on dirt
in the Sunshine State since Rich Vogler’s victory at the Florida State
Fairgrounds 23 years ago.
Stapp’s entries continue a long tradition of family involvement in
the sport. Steve ranks second all-time in terms of USAC National feature
wins with 51, while Dynamics, Inc., who will field a car for Jerry Coons Jr.
at East Bay, is the all-time leader at 74.
A special “match race” for the news media in four-cylinder stocks is
planned during Monday night’s (Feb. 8) activities, with the participants to
be announced soon.
The Tampa races officially open USAC’s 2010 National racing
calendar, which continues with a Silver Crown/Sprint/Midget tripleheader
February 19-20 at USA Raceway Park in Tucson, Ariz. (the “Copper on Dirt”)
and Sprint/Midget doubleheaders February 25 at Las Vegas, Nev. and Feb. 27
at Perris, Calif.
Dave Darland of Lincoln, Ind., whose 28 career USAC Sprint Car wins trail only Tracy Hinesâ€™ 37 on the all-time National victory list among active drivers, has switched teams for the 2010 season. He will pilot one of two Keith Kunz Motorsports/Advanced Racing entries in the â€œBubba Army Sprint Nationalsâ€ February 8-10 at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Fla.
Darland, who finished third in the 2009 standings, won the 1999 series championship and is one of only five USAC â€œTriple Crown Champions.â€ His Sprint car career includes victories in the Tony Hulman Classic, Joe James/Pat Oâ€™Connor Classic, Rich Vogler Classic, Glen Niebel Classic, Robbie Stanley Classic, Four Crown Nationals and the Ultimate Challenge at Oskaloosa, Iowa.
Darland and teammate Henry Clarke of Villa Park, Calif., who claimed the 2009 series â€œRookie of the Yearâ€ honors, will try to give the Kunz Motorsports team their first USAC National Sprint Car ownerâ€™s crown. The team finished second in the 2009 standings and were second in 2003, fourth in 2007 and 2008 and fifth in 2006.
The Kunz team ranks fifth on the all-time USAC Sprint car feature winners list, with 35 wins to their credit, including three with Cole Whitt in 2009.
â€œIâ€™m looking forward to getting back to Florida,â€ says Dave, who admits his first outings at East Bay a few years ago were less than successful. â€œItâ€™s a hard track to figure out and has an odd shape,â€ he adds. â€œIâ€™m glad to be in a Kunz car because they always field top-notch equipment. I have to thank Cory Kruseman for suggesting that I call Kunz and it should be a fun 2010 for us.â€
In 2004 Dave dominated to win the â€œFour Crown Nationalsâ€ Midget race at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio in a Kunz entry, then finished second in the same race in a Kunz car in 2008. His only previous outings in a Kunz Sprinter were at Joliet, Ill. in 2003 where he did not qualify and at the Mopar Million at Eldora in 2004 where he finished 12th in a field of 138 cars!
The three back-to-back National Sprint races at East Bay, located in Gibsonton, Fla., serve as the 2010 Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car series openers and are part of the trackâ€™s 34th â€œWinternationals.â€
In an effort to generate maximum participation at what he considers his â€œhome track,â€ an added bonus for pre-registered USAC car entrants at Tampa will be a free right rear Hoosier tire compliments of Bubba â€œThe Love Spongeâ€ for any appearing car entrants whose entries were filed prior to the entry deadline.
Each night (Monday through Wednesday) contains a complete racing program capped by a 30-lap feature on the very competitive 1/3-mile dirt oval located in Gibsonton, a Tampa suburb.
