Anderson Speedway 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 features.

“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.
