USAC has named Tommie Estes as its competition director for USAC’s Circle Track division, the sanctioning body announced.
Estes will lead the USAC Silver Crown National Championship in all forms of competition and be an advisor to USAC National Series Director Kirk Spridgeon, who will continue to oversee USAC’s AMSOIL National Sprint Car and NOS Energy Drink National Midget divisions.
In addition to his experience competing in sprint cars and midgets, Estes has previously served as the competition director for both the ASCS National Sprint Tour and the Chili Bowl Nationals. Estes also oversaw the racing operations at Dodge City Raceway Park for over 10 years, the organization said.
“Tommie is familiar with USAC’s operations and has been a trusted colleague to us over the past several seasons,” Spridgeon said. “It’s a great asset to have someone to fully devote their time to the promoters, track and competitor base to build up the momentum the Silver Crown series is experiencing.”
As the new leader of USAC’s Silver Crown series, Estes will work with tracks and teams for the 2023 program, USAC said, as the series has experienced new growth in car counts and an evolving schedule.
