On the eve of the 2018-19 World Series Sprintcars Tournament blasting into life, several new nominations have rolled in for the 47th South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, while in an unfortunate development a popular American has been forced to withdraw.
Altoona, Iowa’s Terry McCarl will be forced to break a long run of consecutive Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic appearances, with business commitments, meaning he will be unable to strap in behind the wheel of the Ken Hutchins backed USA 24 entry.
Hutchins’ regular driver Paul Solomon will now be provided with a golden opportunity to contest the Classic, with the equipment that had been earmarked for the multi-time Knoxville Raceway Track Champion.
Of the latest batch of entrants World Series Sprintcars contracted driver Jack ‘The General” Lee, will join a trio of Dumesny’s in the Classic line up with Max, Mathew and Marcus all returning to the Classic as Max attempts to add a fourth Classic win to his already overflowing Honor Roll.
The latest group of Classic entries includes:
