Over the off-season the staff at the Great American Dirt Track has been busy at work preparing for the 2013 season. One of the major dominos recently fell into place with the announcement of United Wireless again partnering with the speedway. This time they’ve up the ante though, as they’ll present the Great American 305 Sprint Car Shootout Series. “United Wireless involvement with our track is really something special,” stated track owner Patrick Johnson. “They provide a great service to people and we’re excited to keep telling our race fans how they can benefit from United Wireless.”
The Great American Dirt Track recently released a 2013 schedule with the Steve King Memorial returning on Saturday, May 25th. This headlining event will again feature the ASCS National Sprint Car Tour. Thursday, June 20th, the USMTS Modifieds will stop in as they get set for a trek through the Southwest. A new event has been created this year too. The NCRA 360 Sprint Cars will hit the track on Thursday July 4th, in an Independence Day blow out.
Within each of these events the 305 Sprint Cars will also compete. The “United Wireless Great American 305 Sprint Car Shootout Series” is a three race mini-series.

About United Wireless
United Telephone Association, Inc. was organized in 1951, by a group of farmers in the Ford County area who wanted telephone service in the rural area surrounding Dodge City, because they were unable to get Southwestern Bell to provide them with any service. They were soon joined by farmers in the Gray County area. The original plan of the Association was to serve the rural area surrounding Dodge City; the towns of Ensign, Spearville and Kingsdown and the rural area surrounding each town, in which the Association had options to purchase the telephone systems. In October 1952 the telephone exchanges in Cimarron, Copeland, Montezuma and Ingalls were purchased. In February 1956 the exchanges of Ashland and Englewood were purchased. On February 23, 1959 the Ensign Telephone Company was purchased. In February 1973, the Board made the decision to take over the territory served by the Ford Mutual Telephone Company.
In February, 1967, a Private Branch Exchange of PBX was installed by United for the American Products Manufacturing business in Spearville. This was a first for United. In 1979 United formed a subsidiary company, United Communications Association, Inc., to handle Cable Television and the deregulated portion of the telephone business. In 2000, United Communications rolled out its DSL Internet service in all if its exchanges. In 2005, United Wireless was started as a way of bringing the latest technology to their customers. This service includes both wireless internet services and United Wireless cell phone services.
