USPRO PROMOTERS REGAIN CONTROL OF ASA LATE MODEL SERIES
Series is Ready to Roll for 2005 Season
The ASA Late Model Series is on track and ready to roll into 2005. The series, which was formerly known as the USPRO Racing Series, launched its inaugural season throughout the Midwest.
and Steve Dale, owner of American Speed Association have come to an agreement for the direction of the series and Steve has agreed to sell 100% interest back to Ron Varney Jr.
This is exciting news for Varney and his family who founded the original USPRO Racing Series. With all of ASA’s challenges this year, both parties felt it was best to part ways.
“We really appreciate all that ASA has done for us and the series,” commented Ron Varney. “It was a successful step for us, but we are now ready to take the next step on our own.”
The Varney’s were quick to point out that moving forward all Winner’s Circle and Points funds will be paid. The Awards Banquet will be held at Cedar Crest Banquet Center in Marshall, Michigan on January 29th.
Championship Car Owners Bud and Phyllis Gebben will be joining the ASA Late Model family as a partners in the series.
The series drew quite a bit of interest throughout the 2004 season. Many racers are drawn to the lower cost while racing in a traveling series. Tracks enjoy the series because it brings great competitive racing that fans love. All in all it is a win, win for the teams, tracks and series.
The partnership that created the ASA Late Model Series originated between Ron Varney Jr. of USPRO Racing and American Speed Association. Together they created a high profile series that has potential to expand beyond its current scope.
Today we would like to announce a restructuring of the ownership and management of the series. Ron Varney Jr.
