FLIPPIN, Ark. -- North Central Arkansas Speedway in Yellville, Ark., is the latest dirt oval to join the family of USRA member tracks, and will feature the popular USRA RHS Modifieds as part of their weekly Friday night racing program in 2012.

“The USRA was founded in 2002 and the first sanctioned track was in Arkansas,” noted Lone Oelke, Director of Growth & partnerships for the USRA. “It’s a fun, fast racetrack and will fit nicely with some Saturday night tracks in the area to give drivers some more ammo to shoot for the national title.”

Located between Yellville and Flippin in the beautiful Ozarks, the North Central Arkansas Speedway is owned and operated by Russell and Valerie Hand.

Drivers in the USRA RHS Modified division will compete for a points fund worth up to $1,500 at season’s end to the track champion plus multiple contingency awards and a $10,000 top prize for the national champion in the American Racer USRA Weekly Racing Series.

Rob Muilenburg of Sparta is the defending track champion in the Modified division.

Other classes featured on Friday nights include Super Stocks, Mini-Stocks, Cruisers and Pure Stock Trucks.

A pair of play days are slated for Saturday, March 31, and Saturday, April 7, with the track’s season opener presented by Simons Petroleum set for Friday, April 13. Gates open at 6 p.m. with racing at 8.

The North Central Arkansas Speedway is a high-banked 3/8-mile dirt oval located 2 miles east of SR 14 in Yellville on US 62. For more information, call the office at 870-656-4699 or the track hotline at 870-449-5277 or check them out online at
