Jonestown, PA (December 22nd, 2014) - Central Pennsylvania's Brock Zearfoss will waste no time getting his 2015 season activated, and will kick-off the new year competing at the annual Speedway Motors Tulsa Shootout in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The full-time sprint car competitor in 'Pennsylvania Posse Country' will once again step down from the '410' ranks, and compete in two separate 'micro sprint' classes at this year's nationally recognized indoor event.
Big Season Planned for American Racing Drivers Club
The American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) has a full season of events planned for the 2015 season, featuring the return of the wingless midgets to both North Carolina and Western Pennsylvania speedways as well as an increased presence on the area quarter mile tracks.
The 2015 season kicks off with the Friday night opener at the Linda's Speedway on April 3rd. It has been several years since the wingless midgets competed at Linda's but 2015 will mark the return with three dates at the Jonestown, PA track.
After nine seasons as a corporate entity, the United Racing Company will cease operation in December 2014.
Low car count, a diminishing number of shows, the rising cost of operating a 360 sprint car and less fan appeal make it difficult for promoters to see a positive financial impact when adding this division as an event at their race track. As a result, many race teams have turned to other options as well, like the forever popular 410 sprints with other teams going to the more affordable route of the 305 sprints, where they may compete locally to avoid the travel cost.
AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY
USAC history continues with the return of the 9th Annual AMSOIL USAC Eastern Storm opening at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 2nd. The Eastern Storm will continue with stops at the Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday night, June 3, New Egypt Speedway on Thursday night, June 4, Port Royal on Saturday night, June 6 and Susquehanna on Sunday night, June 7.
Past Eastern Storm Champions include Brady Bacon, Bryan Clauson, Levi Jones and Cole Whitt. Brady Bacon is one driver who is already gearing up for the 2015 Eastern Storm. Bacon recently confirmed that he's heading East for the Storm.

The duo, which plans to hit the road again with the Outlaws next year, will kick off the 2015 season at the Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown.
The United Racing Club will join in on the fun during this years running of the $3,000 to win 'Turnpike 25' on Thursday June 11. Last years very successful 'Turnpike 25' was won by Davie Franek. Davie won over a field of 25 360 sprint cars that turned out to compete on the racy 7/16th-mile D-Shaped New Egypt Speedway.
The United Racing Club will work closely with Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints official Dean Reynolds, who guided the 2014 version of the 'Turnpike 25'. Anyone interested in scheduling races or sponsoring the United Racing Club in 2015 and beyond, may contact Curt Michael at 302-344-1882
Hires Tim Glatfelter for a 40-race schedule.
John Trone has the racing bug. Big time. After the 2013 Sprint Car season, Trone relinquished his ownership role for health reasons. He spent 14 days in intensive care for congestive heart failure, and it was time to focus on the recuperation process.
But Trone wasn't far away from the game. He still sponsored Greg Hodnett, who moved over to the Mike Heffner-owned team, and was at the track on a weekly basis in a fan capacity. That status has changed. Trone is back wearing the ownership hat after one year of being on the sidelines and has hired up-and-coming Tim Glatfelter to drive his car in 2015.
"I needed to take off a year and recuperate," Trone said. "I didn't even know if I was going to be around in 2014.
