WATSONVILLE, CALIFORNIA (June 13, 2013) – The USAC/CRA 410 traditional sprint cars will hit John Prentice’s Ocean Speedway Watsonville for their first of two appearances, going head-to-head with the USAC Western Classic Sprints in a co-sanctioned contest. IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, and Four Bangers will join the USAC competition on a busy night for Father’s Day weekend.
