The ARCA/CRA Super Series is set to return to Anderson Speedway for the third time this season Saturday night. It serves as a replacement for the Battle at Berlin 251, which was canceled due to ongoing crowd restrictions in the state of Michigan.
Three-time Redbud winner Johnny VanDoorn makes his first start of 2020 this weekend at Anderson. He missed the Redbud 400 last month after his wife gave birth to their daughter, allowing Carson Hocevar to jump in the TK Racing No. 71 as a substitute driver and win the event.
June ARCA/CRA Super Series winner Cody Coughlin is entered, as well as JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour winner and Redbud 400 runner-up Josh Brock. Both drivers are former champions in the series.
Two-time Anderson Speedway track champion Jack Dossey III joins the field after a top-five run at the Redbud. He won the ARCA/CRA Super Series 125-lap event at Anderson last season.
Defending series champion Greg Van Alst, Steve Dorer, Dalton Armstrong, Brett Robinson and Hunter Jack have all won at Anderson in CRA competition in the past. Dorer and Armstrong are former Redbud winners, Van Alst and Robinson have both won at Anderson in the CRA LM Sportsman, while Jack earned his only JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour win at the facility last year.
Mason Keller returns to Anderson after finishing second back in June, while Austin Thom will make the trip all the way from Oregon to compete in Central Indiana once again.
Former ARCA/CRA Super Series champion Logan Runyon, defending JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour champion Dan Leeck, 2019 Kalamazoo Speedway winner Kyle Crump, Michigan racer Michael Simko and Indiana driver Jaren Crabtree also join the field for Saturday’s event.
Cody Coughlin won the 125-lap event at Anderson back in June, while Carson Hocevar took the victory in the Redbud 400 last month. Josh Brock was the winner in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour race in June, and he currently leads the series points standings over Greg Van Alst and Coughlin.
The CRA Street Stocks will also be on hand for their Four Crown finale. They will go 150 laps to conclude the night. CSR Mini Cups and Front Wheel Drive Figure 8’s will join the card as well.
