BUDWEISER OVAL NATIONALS BACK TO THREE NIGHTS IN 2013! 
(Perris, CA, December 18, 2012)
Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian continues to play Santa Claus for racing fans with the announcement this morning that the Budweiser Ovals Nationals will return to a three day format in 2013. Added to the schedule on Halloween night, October 31st, will the finale for "The USAC Grudge Series," for the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series and the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series.

"For years, the Budweiser Oval Nationals had been a three day show," Kazarian said. "It was a tradition and part of the charm of the event. When we were forced to cut it back to two days in 2012, a lot of fans were disappointed. So was I. This year the USAC West Coast Sprint Cars and the USAC Southwest Sprint Cars will open the Ovals on Halloween night. Fans who are local to The PAS and fans who travel from around the country will get to see a group of drivers and cars they normally do not see. On top of that, it should some extra cars to the regular portion of the Oval Nationals."

"The race will be the third and final event of the "USAC Grudge Series" pitting the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series against the USAC Western Sprint Car Series," Canyon Speedway Park promoter Kevin Montgomery said via phone on Tuesday morning. The "Grudge Series" will begin on March 7th in Las Vegas. It will come to Canyon (in Peoria, Arizona) on September 28th before wrapping up at The PAS at the Oval Nationals. It is going to be a great race."

In addition to being the final event in "The USAC Grudge Series," the race will also be the finale for both the USAC Western Sprint Car Series and the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series. Three separate champions may be crowned that night and seven different champions may be crowned over the three days.

The two nights following the "Grudge Series," November 1st and 2nd, the Amsoil USAC National and CRA Sprint Car Series' will take over for their portion of the Budweiser Oval Nationals. They will be joined each night by the California Lightning Sprint Cars and the PAS Senior Sprints.

"On paper, this is shaping up as the best Budweiser Oval Nationals in history," Kazarian said. "We will have six different divisions and four different types of sprint cars competing. We should have well over 130 different cars on hand." 

With the addition of the third day, the practice session, which will be free for fans in the grandstands, has been moved to Wednesday, October 30th.

Tickets for the 18th Annual Budweiser, as well as all other 2013 events at The PAS, will be on sale soon. 

The entire 2013 PAS schedule is listed at the end of this release.
