Series News Release from USAC Racing
Mitchel Moles will make his USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship debut this Friday and Saturday night, May 20-21, at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track in the Reinbold-Underwood Motorsports number 19AZ.
The Raisin City, Calif. native currently resides 3rd in the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship standings and has been a force with the series as a Rookie campaigner this season.
