Anderson Speedway Releases Details on $5,000 to Win Street Stock 300 Lap Event

Anderson Speedway officials have released the details on their $5000 to win 300 lap Street Stock event that will take place at the “World’s Fastest High-Banked Quarter Mile Oval” on Saturday, June 27th. The event will be sanctioned by Champion Racing Association with the CRA Street Stocks rules and will be a special point’s event for the Anderson Speedway Street Stocks and a regular points event for CRA Street Stocks, but the event is open to any Street Stock competitor who wants to come race.

“Street Stocks have always been one of this areas favorite racing divisions for years,” remarked Rick Dawson, Promoter of Anderson Speedway. “We have always had a couple of special events for Street Stocks each year, but now that they have become the premier racing division here at Anderson, I wanted to give them their own signature event like our Little 500 for the Sprint Cars and the Redbud 300 for the Late Models. We feel this event will attract the best drivers in this area for the biggest grassroots racing event in this region!”

The Street Stock 300 is set up to start 40 cars, 32 straight up from qualifying. Four more starters from a last chance race if necessary and two from Anderson Street Stock points and two from CRA points not already locked into the show. If there are more that 40 cars, there is a good chance that there will be additional starters who will receive lower guaranteed starting money than the original 40 starters.

The event will have a 10 minute halfway break at lap 150, which will be the only time teams will be allowed to refuel, but teams will be allowed to pit in the infield during the event to replace flat tires and do minor repair work to get themselves back into the race. There will be no tire changes allowed except for approved flat tires through out the race. The event will also feature the Lucky Dog rule were the highest running car one lap or more down will get a lap back at each caution, up until the last 10 laps of the event.

The 300 lap event will pay the winner $5000 and will pay all the way through the field down to $100 for 40th position. There will also be extra bonus money available for several teams through out the event including a $100 bonus to every car that finishes within 15 laps of the winner. A $200 bonus to the highest finisher in the second half of race after all cars more than one lap down are reset to being on the same lap for the purposes of this award and a $100 bonus to the most improved finisher from this group. There is also a $100 bonus for the most improved finisher of all the cars still running at end of race.

“We look forward to working with Anderson Speedway on this great event,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner of Champion Racing Association. “The CRA Street Stocks have always had great attended events at Anderson every since our first event there. This event not only has a great payoff, it also features some super incentives for racers to keep racing in the event with the great bonuses offered and the Lucky Dog Rule. This is going to be one of the most exciting events to watch at Anderson Speedway this season!”

Entry forms for the event are being sent out to competitors this week. Forms will also be available at the Anderson Speedway office or can be downloaded off the Anderson web site or off the CRA web site. Pit gates will open on Saturday, June 27th at 3pm, practice begins at 5pm with qualifying at 6:30pm. The race program will begin at 8pm.
