The opening race of the 2013 Traxxas USAC Silver Crown Series renews a tradition dating back to 1995 when Donnie Beechler was the first winner. One previous Silver Crown race pre-dated the “Sumar Classic” when Gary Bettenhausen was the 1980 winner.
The April 28 timetable finds a 4:30 drivers meeting, followed by practice at 5. Silver Crown qualifying is scheduled at 6, followed by modified heats. Opening ceremonies are slated at 7. A 15-lap modified feature precedes the 50-lap “Sumar Classic” main event.
Defending Traxxas USAC Silver Crown Champion Bobby East won last year’s “Sumar Classic.” Previous winners have included Levi Jones, Dave Darland, Bud Kaeding, Josh Wise, Brian Tyler, J.J. Yeley, Tony Elliott, Jack Hewitt and Kevin Thomas.
