Wolfgang remembers his buddy, Nace

Tea, S.D. — The 1989 season at Selinsgrove Speedway was capped off by the late Jim Nace of Thompsontown winning his third straight 410 sprint car title.

It was also the year in which the start-up series, the United Sprint Association (USA) was formed in direct competition to the World of Outlaws.

USA sanctioned three races at the track that year with Doug Wolfgang of Sioux Falls, S.D., winning two of three, including the $51,000-to-win National Open. Mark Kinser won the other USA-sanctioned race on June 5.

On Saturday, the speedway will remember Nace, who died in November 2009 following a seven-year battle with cancer, with the third installment of the Jim Nance Memorial National Open for 410 sprint cars.
