CRESCO, Iowa (Jan. 7) -- Officials from RL Promotions and the Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Iowa, have announced a tentative schedule of events for the 2008 racing season at the Howard County Fairgrounds 4/10-mile high-banked clay oval.

An exciting season of Fast & Furious Fridays and racing under the United States Racing Association banner will kick off on April 25 with the season opener for the USRA Casey’s General Stores Weekly Racing Series featuring USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods, USRA Hobby Stocks and Outlaw Hobbys.

The annual Howard County Fair race will take place on Sunday, June 15, and the Season Championship for the USRA Casey’s General Stores Weekly Racing Series will happen on Aug. 22.

On Thursday, July 3, the bad-fast Stock Cars take center stage for the Great American Stock Car Shootout. The stars of NASCAR will grace the place on Tuesday, July 29, along with an invasion by the O’Reilly USMTS Modifieds.

The curtain will close on the 2008 season on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 3-4, with the USRA All-Star Invitational, featuring drivers in every USRA-sanctioned division from every USRA-sanctioned track. This will be a two-day special for the USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and USRA Hobby Stocks. USRA-licensed drivers finishing (or currently ranked) in the top-20 in track points will be eligible.

New for 2008 will be the Cresco Speedway Party Zone, allowing vehicles and fans into the infield area for a unique view of the action. A volleyball net and horseshoe area are among the special features planned, and fans will be able to bring their own food and drink into the Party Zone.
