Formula USA has confirmed that AMA/Progressive Insurance U.S. Flat Track Champion Chris Carr and his Quality Checked Certified Pre-owned Ford Racing Team will be joining the K&N Filters Del Mar Weekend racing events near San Diego this weekend. Carr will be racing in the Saturday night short track event and Sunday in the K&N Filters Del Mar Mile.
The addition of Carr thickens the plot of racing at the Formula USA National Dirt Track Series season finale. The 2000 Formula USA National Dirt Track Champion and a two-time winner on this year’s Formula USA tour, Carr will face season points leader, defending champion and last year’s short track winner Terry Poovey, and will also challenge Nicky Hayden this weekend along with dozens top racers.
“The talent at this year’s Del Mar event is the best lineup we’ve seen in years with new guys and proven legends; this will be one for ages,” said Mike Kidd, vice president of Clear Channel Entertainment – Motor Sports.
