SuperTruck and Street Stock Teams Head to Legendary O'Reilly Raceway Park
Teams to have Key Role in the Inaugural “Circle Track Classic” on
Saturday, September 20th
One of the most unique events in Anderson Speedway history is scheduled to take
place September 20th…but its not taking place at Anderson Speedway. In an effort
to show unity in short-track racing in central Indiana, Anderson Speedway teamed
up with the officials of Champion Racing Association (CRA) to serve as
promotional partners in the Inaugural “Circle Track Classic” at O’Reilly Raceway
Park (ORP) in Indianapolis.
Anderson Speedway points will be
awarded to Anderson Speedway Truck and Street Stock teams that participate in
the highly anticipated, high profile racing event in the city long acknowledged
as “The Capitol of Racing.” The Anderson Speedway teams will be key parts of the
4-division show that features the CRA Super Series Late Models, the Howe/CRA
Sportsman, the CRA Street Stocks, and the Super Truck Challenge. The Super Late
Models will run a 100-Lap feature, with the other divisions battling in 50-lap
“Anderson Speedway teams and fans
routinely acknowledge that we race weekly at one of the most historic facilities
in America, and its great for them to get a chance to experience another one of
Indiana’s racing jewels in O’Reilly Raceway Park,” noted Anderson Speedway
President Rick Dawson.
“Through our participation with CRA,
we encourage our teams and our stock car fans to be part of this very special
race in Indianapolis.”
The September 20th date at ORP
presents a rare opportunity for central Indiana short track race fans to see
their local hero’s take center stage at a facility normally reserved for the
national stars. The date is even more special, as there are no conflicting stock
car events at Anderson Speedway, Winchester Speedway, Mt. Lawn Speedway and many
other area tracks.
“The choice is really easy for race
fans on this weekend,” commented CRA Managing Partner Glenn Luckett.
“Coordinating the open date with area race tracks is a tremendous benefit to
area racers and fans. It certainly gives everyone a chance to be recognized at a
very important racing event in the Midwest.”
ORP will host an open practice for all
teams from 5 to 9 on Friday night, September 19th. On the following day,
official activities for the Inaugural “Circle Track Classic” will begin with
gates opening at 10am, practice at 12:30, qualifying at 4pm and racing at 7pm.
