?    The 49th scheduled running of one of the most historic sprint car races in the nation is set to take place at Salem Speedway on Sunday, August 3, as the USAC National Sprint Car Series visits the super-fast oval for the Indiana Stone Works Joe James/Pat O’Connor Memorial.
    The honor roll of past James/O’Connor victors reads like a “who’s-who” in open wheel racing history with such names as A.J. Foyt, Parnelli Jones, Bob Sweikert, Mario Andretti, Bobby Unser, Pancho Carter, Rich Vogler, Kenny Irwin Jr., and Tony Stewart gracing the list of former winners.
    The 2008 edition of the classic brings together USAC’s finest open wheel drivers as they attempt to add their name to the list of racing greats who have won the prestigious event. Winning one Joe James/Pat O’Connor Memorial is a significant accomplishment, capturing a second classic is a distinction bestowed on just 10 drivers.
