OUTFRONT Media of St. Louis will sponsor the August 19 USAC Silver Crown Series race during the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 INDYCAR Weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois. The 80-lap, 100-mile USAC Silver Crown Series race will be called the OUTFRONT 100.
OUTFRONT provides unmatched media coverage of St. Louis and the metropolitan area, reaching consumers at all corners of the market, city and neighborhoods. Out-of-house displays (OOH) are perfectly positioned to capture target audiences across businesses big and small.
The USAC Silver Crown Series and its unique brand of grassroots, open-wheel excitement will make a triumphant return to WWTR after a five-year hiatus. Silver Crown cars are somewhat similar to Sprint Cars but are not considered as Sprint Cars. The incredible power-to-weight ratio – 800+ horsepower at a lightweight 1,650 lbs. – make them the fastest short track racers in the country.
Points leader and six-time USAC Silver Crown Series champion Kody Swanson is a favorite to win the OUTLOOK 100, coming off his sixth career victory at Toledo, Ohio. The California native has won more than 30 Silver Crown feature races but never has visited Domino’s Victory Lane at WWTR.
Third-generation driver Bobby Santos III is second in the USAC point standings and has won twice at WWTR, in 2013 and 2014. Santos III also holds the 80-lap Silver Crown record at WWTR – 49:46:000 at 120.563 miles per hour, set in 2014.
Spectator gates will open at 8 a.m. on August 19, with the first USAC Silver Crown Series practice set for 10 a.m. The OUTFRONT 100 is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m., following NTT INDYCAR SERIES qualifying.
Tickets are available at the WWTR ticket office, by calling (618) 215-888, or online at wwtraceway.com.
