  • Ohio Sprint Car Series kicks off season at Atomic

    Inside Line Promotions – WAVERLY, Ohio (April 18, 2018) – The Ohio Sprint Car Series (OSCS) will kick off its season Saturday, April 21 at Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio. It will be the first of six appearances at the high banked facility in 2018.
    OSCS Owner Steven Pocock is encouraged by the contact he has received from race teams and fans, noting 2018 is a building year and plans for 2019 are already being put into place.
    “We have gotten a lot of interest from race teams and fans. We are planning a lot of things to help the teams this season including tow packages for the Pennsylvania dates and drawings for free pit passes,” he said.
    Pocock said there are no OSCS membership fees in 2018. There will be pop-up bonuses for OSCS members throughout the 2018 season. Pop-up bonuses are for most laps led during the feature and the hard charger. Pocock said there is a Hard Charger Award and Tough Break Award provided by Pyrotect and Saldana Racing Products. Rod End Supply will also give out certificates for heat race winners. Those teams planning to compete for the 2018 OSCS title must register – free – by April 28 by going to
    “There isn’t a point fund for this year since we got a late start having not purchased the series just a few months ago. We will work hard to show the teams, tracks and fans we are in this to grow,” he added. “We will do things like hold a drawing for three pit passes for the teams. I encourage teams to our Facebook page and then our driver/owner discussion page and share your thoughts on how we can grow the series.”
    Pocock said OSCS has purchased a souvenir trailer and is making it available for the teams planning to run the series full time.
    “Bring your merchandise to our trailer and you set the price and you’ll get 100 percent back. All profits from the sale of OSCS apparel will be going into a point fund for the end of the year awards,” he added.
    Saturday’s OSCS opener at Atomic Speedway will be the 10th Annual Dan Reno Memorial and will pay the 410c.i. sprint feature winner $2,522 to the feature winner and will pay $300 to start. Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. with main gates a 4 p.m. and hot laps at 6 p.m. General admission tickets are $15; senior citizens and veterans $12; kids 12 and under free; and pit passes are $30.
