Salem, IN – ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS officials have released the entry form for the 43rd Running of the Winchester 400 on the famous High Banks of Winchester Speedway, which will be held on Sunday, October 12th. This event is one of the top short track events in the country. Some of the past winners since CRA began sanctioning the event include names like Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, David Stremme, Ross Kenseth, Erik Jones, Scott Hantz, Brian Ross, Ryan Lawler, Boris Jurkovic and Bobby Parsley.
The Winchester 400 is the final leg in the JEGS/CRA $100,000 Super Late Model Triple Crown. The other events included the Stoops Freightliner Redbud 300 on June 14th at Anderson Speedway which was won by Daniel Hemric and the Berlin 251 on July 19th at Berlin Raceway that was won by Johnny VanDoorn. Since there are already two winners, no one will be able to claim the $100,000 bonus for winning all three events, but both Hemric and VanDoorn have a chance to claim the $10,000 bonus for winning two of the three events.
The Winchester 400 is 400 laps counting cautions with live pit stops. It is a 12 tire maximum race. The event will pay $15,000 to win plus bonuses, which includes $10,000 in lap leader money, which is $25 per lap lead, plus bonuses of $1500, $1000 and $500 to the top three finishing traveling non-regular CRA teams.
