CRESCO, Iowa -- Officials from RL Promotions and the Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Iowa, have announced a tentative schedule of events for the 2006 racing season at the 3/8-mile clay oval.

An exciting season of racing will launch on Friday, April 21, with an open practice Test ‘n’ Tune session, followed by the season opener for the USRA Weekly Racing Series on Sunday, April 23. The USRA Weekly Racing Series will consist of USRA-sanctioned Modifieds, Stock Cars, B-Mods and Hobby Stocks, along with Outlaw Hobbies. The Street Stock class that competed in 2005 will become the USRA Hobby Stock class. This class will be a 9:1 compression 360 class. The Hobby Stock division that raced in 2005 at the Cresco Speedway will now be called Outlaw Hobbies.

The O’Reilly Auto Parts USMTS Modifieds will make two visits to the Cresco Speedway in 2006. The first date is slated for Wednesday, June 21, during the annual Howard County Fair. Seven-time O'Reilly USMTS champion Kelly Shryock is expected to be among the stellar field of stars and cars as he looks to defend his crown against the likes of Tommy Myer, Brad McEwan, Al Hejna, Cory Dripps, Zack VanderBeek, Ryan Ruter, Jason Hughes, Mark Noble, Dean Mahlstedt and many more of America's modified top guns. America's premier modified series returns again on Sunday, August 13, for another $2,000-to-win show.

The IRA Outlaw Sprint Series returns for the annual Labor Day Classic on Sunday, September 3, which will also serve as the season finale for the USRA Weekly Racing Series.
