Working together is a theme for success in short track racing and Winchester Speedway is no stranger to that. In an effort to further that process, Winchester Speedway is announcing that the Fly Over States 150 on Tuesday, May 18 is now a co-sanctioned event with the ARCA Midwest Tour and the ARCA / CRA Super Series.
“The Midwest Tour is excited to be part of this new event at an iconic Midwestern facility,” said Gregg McKarns, promoter of the ARCA Midwest Tour. “It’s always fun to see how our stars match up with the top CRA drivers, as well as those emerging national Super Late Model top dogs.”
“We are looking forward to working with Winchester and the ARCA Midwest Tour on this new event,” said Glenn Luckett, managing partner for the Champion Racing Association. “This will be a great event for teams to get ready for Labor Day and the Winchester 400.”
The big mid-week show will be a high-dollar, 150-lap Super Late Model race. More details are expected to be announced in the coming months. The support series and other activities for the prestigious event will be revealed soon.
“This race was always going to be a CRA event, but I really wanted to get Gregg McKarns and what he has going with the Midwest Tour as part of this,” said Bob Dillner, promoter of Winchester Speedway. “Both series and their teams of people are professional and do a great job, but I believe Gregg, like his father, is an innovative promoter and his series is one of the tops in the nation. Bringing these two series together epitomizes Midwest Super Late Model Racing and we are proud to have them at Winchester Speedway.”
Announcements for monetary and other incentives for both series will be announced soon. The event will be an invitational for Midwest Tour regulars and a points-paying race for the CRA Super Series. The event will be conducted per CRA rules.
Details on all the events at Winchester will be made on an individual basis. Also, expect the entire schedule for Winchester Speedway in 2021, which will feature the return of USAC and its first appearance for the Silver Crown Series, to be released soon.
