So on the Hosehead's forum (NorCal page) someone was asking about a list of NARC champions and race winners and I looked back at my old Sprint Car Annuals and was able to provide the NARC champions list and all main event winners between 1992 and NARC's final season in 2000.

Couldn't help but look at everything else too...using the Annual covering the 1992 season, let's look back at the Montana Open Wheel Racing Association, a forerunner of today's Big Sky Sprint Tour.

It ran at the following tracks that year....
Capital City Speedway - Helens, MT (now closed)
Electric City Speedway - Great Falls, MT
Bridge County Raceway - Lethbridge, Alberta
Hub of the Valley Speedway - Belgrade, MT (now closed, Gallatin Speedway later opened in '98)
Magic City Speedway - Billings, MT (now closed, Billings Motorsports Park later opened in 2003-ish)


Of those five tracks, three of them are no longer around.
