Representatives from Quincy Raceways and the United Midwestern Promoters (UMP) have reached an agreement to bring the popular late model Summer Nationals —a.k.a The Hell Tour —back to the Bullring.
The 2013 date will be July 2, a Tuesday night, and will kick off the third week of the six-week event.
“This is a great date for us,” track spokesman Jack Walbring said. “It comes early in the series, meaning we should have an outstanding field of drivers. In most of the past years when we’ve had a Summer Nationals race it was late in the schedule and some of the big names had left the tour at that point.”
We’ll have more details as they become available.
