HOOSIER HUNDRED RESET FRIDAY DUE TO WET GROUNDS
The “Hoosier Hundred,” USAC’s 2013 opening TRAXXAS USAC Silver Crown Championship race at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, has been reset for Friday night after morning rains left the grounds extremely wet.
“We anticipate sunny skies tomorrow,” says series coordinator James Spink. “That will allow race organizers at the Fairgrounds to properly prepare the grounds and race track to provide the optimum experience for participants and race fans.”
The “Hoosier Hundred” is one of America’s most revered dirt-track events, the 100-mile race on the historic one-mile oval dating back to 1953. Former winners have included numerous Indianapolis 500 veterans and winners and Jerry Coons Jr. hopes to become only the third driver to score a third consecutive victory on Friday night.
Pit gates will open Friday at noon and the grandstands will open at 3 pm. Practice starts at 5, followed by qualifying at 6.
