Adds ARCA Trucks in 2006
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
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.
