NSC Returns to Lincoln, July 14, 2018

The National SpeedSkating Circuit, the professional inline racing league for the sport of inline speed skating, is excited to announce its return to the Cornhusker State on Saturday July 14, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. CDT for Event 30.  The event will be held at the Speedway Village. The last time the NSC visited Lincoln, NE, was in July of 2017 when they hosted an unforgettable night of racing with nearly 500 spectators in attendance.  The NSC sports league consists of the top 30 professional men and women inline speed skating racers.  The women race distances ranging from 100m to 1300m and the men race distances ranging from 100m to 1600m.

“If you are trying to get an idea of what an NSC event is like, picture track and field, except the racers are on inline speed skates, going much faster and they are not required to stay in designated lanes.  This format of racing makes for one hell of a show,” said Miguel Jose, NSC President.

Inline speed skating has a long history with the city of Lincoln.  Lincoln has been the home of the amateur national governing body of roller sports (USA Roller Sports) for over 40 years.  It also has been the host city of the amateur roller sports national championships 28 times.  The decision for the NSC to host an event in Lincoln NE, stemmed from this rich history and Lincoln’s relationship with USA Roller Sports.  In fact amateur inline speed skating national championships start the day after the NSC event in the same venue.

“The NSC brought a lot to the National Championships last year, and I am happy that USA Roller Sports and the NSC are collaborating again this year.  The event was super exciting, and I can’t wait to see what this year brings,” said Megan Schuller, Speed and Figure Coordinator for USA Roller Sports.

“It’s hard to explain the excitement of an NSC event.  It’s more intimate than other racing sports because the spectators are seated close enough to feel the wind the skaters generate as they go by.  You’re close enough to hear the noise of every slip and crash that happens.  It’s pretty simple; if you enjoy any type of racing sports, you will absolutely love watching the best inline speed skaters in the world duke it out over a 2-1/2-hour event,” said Kelly Springer, Inline Speed Skating World Team Coach.
