USAC Sanctioning Angell Park’s Pepsi Nationals

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. – The USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series will return to Angell Park Speedway on Sept. 5 for the iconic Pepsi Midget Nationals. SLS Promotions and Hans Lein recently teamed up with the Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department to operate the third-mile dirt oval in Sun Prairie, Wis. Lein was a longtime midget racer and midget car owner at Angell Park, and his love for the track runs deep. “I’ve always loved Angell Park Speedway and am really excited for this opportunity,” Lein said. SLS Promotions’ Larry Hillerud echoed those sentiments, himself a former midget driver with USAC and Badger at Angell Park from the 1970s through the 1990s. The track has hosted 46 previous USAC National Midget events since Larry Rice’s victory in 1970. Angell Park’s tradition of racing dates back to 1939, while the Pepsi Nationals’ origins go back to 1982, with the inaugural event won by Billy Engelhart.
