Rare Pavement/Dirt USAC Silver Crown Weekend Ahead

— Two-hundred miles lie ahead for the USAC Silver Crown National Championship during a weekend that presents quite a rarity for the series: races on consecutive days on both pavement and dirt. Dating back onto the USAC National Championship trail, Lloyd Ruby won his first championship race at Milwaukee in 1961. The Springfield/Milwaukee weekend was a mainstay throughout the remainder of the 1960s and into 1970. Foyt and Parnelli Jones, shared weekend honors in 1964 with Foyt winning at Springfield and Jones at Milwaukee. Unser answered by winning the second end of the double with a winning performance on the magic mile dirt oval at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds in Illinois.
