Week Of Indy Terre Haute Event Postponed Due To Rain

Hoosier Hundred & Carb Night Still On For Thursday/Friday

(Terre Haute, IN) The first of three nights of racing for USAC’s “The Week Of Indy” has been postponed due to steady rainfall in Western Indiana.  The Tony Hulman Classic was set to bring in 30+ USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars and the Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds.  The event will be rescheduled.  Two dates are being considered and officials are checking to confirm which one will be best.  The new date will likely be released at the Hoosier Hundred on Thursday.  The “Week Of Indy” will now get underway on Thursday, May 25 with the Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, which has a much improved forecast.

With the postponement of the Tony Hulman Classic, fans, teams, and drivers will start making the trek an hour to the east for Thursday’s Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, IN.  The event will feature the USAC Silver Crown Champ Cars presented by Traxxas.  Also racing will be the Mid-American Stock Car Series.  The event is rich in tradition and this year’s field is expected to be in upwards of 40 cars for the 100-lap event.

The weather forecast for Thursday has shown great improvement with any chances for rain ending in the early morning hours.  The track at the Indiana State Fairgrounds holds up well with wet weather as proved last year when a two hour downpour came through at noon on raceday.  USAC Silver Crown hotlaps will be first on track at 5:00 with their qualifying session around 6:15.  The Mid-American Stock Car Series will run their feature shortly after 7:00 and the USAC Silver Crown Series Hoosier Hundred will take the green around 8:00 PM.

 

Also still on schedule for this week is the Carb Night Classic on Friday, May 26th at Lucas Oil Raceway.  On track will be the USAC Silver Crown Series for a 100-lap event.  A solid field of cars is expected.  The Mid-American Stock Car Series will also be making their return to the Brownsburg, IN oval.  Mid-American practice will begin at 3:15, Silver Crown at 4:00, Champ Car qualifying at 5:30, Mid-American Stock car feature at 6:30, and the Carb Night Classic for the Champ Cars will go green at 8:00 PM.

Fans who have purchased a “Week Of Indy” Superticket, will be able to use it on the remaining two events this week, as well as the Tony Hulman Classic makeup date.  If you have any additional questions, call 217-764-3200.
