Anderson Speedway Adds ARCA Trucks in 2006

For the first time since 2000, the ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series returns to Anderson Speedway for the 2006 season, to shape a growing schedule that includes events in the U.S. and Canada.

“We’re obviously excited that ARCA and the Lincoln Welders Truck Series are returning to Anderson Speedway in 2006,” said Rick Dawson, president and co-owner of the track.

"ARCA has a long history with Anderson over the years and race fans should be very excited for the ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series to make a return appearance to Anderson.”

The touring truck series returns to Anderson on April 29 for a 100-lap event. The series has previously made appearances at the .25-mile facility in 1999 and 2000, with Aaron Hulings winning the inaugural event in a Ford Ranger and Troy Marciniak putting his Chevrolet S-10 into victory lane the following year.

2006 will mark Anderson’s 59th consecutive year of operation. The historic high-banked quarter mile was constructed in 1948 and features 17 degree banking in the corners.

While series officials have yet to release a final 2006 schedule, as many as 15 events may become part of the final plan, with races already scheduled in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Virginia and Ontario, Canada.

The series returns to the .25-mile Kentucky Speedway on May 13 and Salem Speedway on September 16. Both dates are in conjunction with the ARCA RE/MAX Series.

Other tracks hosting the series in 2006 include Toledo Speedway (July 7), Flat Rock Speedway (July 15), Kil-Kare Speedway (July 21), Delaware Speedway (August 4), Winchester Speedway (August 13), the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds (August 26), and the traditional Labor Day weekend visit to Virginia Int’l Raceway.
