Fantasy Racing Preview: Redbud 400 at Anderson

Some of the best Super Late Model racers in America are at Anderson Speedway (IN) for Monday night’s Redbud 400.  Race fans can compete with one another in 51 Fantasy powered by Dirt Draft while watching Monday’s 400-lap marathon around the tight quarter-mile.


Fans who are new to Dirt Draft and use referral code “speed51” can save 50% off their first month of fantasy racing.






With Dirt Draft, fans are given $100,000 in fictional currency to assemble a roster of five drivers in an event such as tonight’s Redbud 400.  Your roster then goes against those of other fans, competing for points which can be redeemed for souvenirs, event tickets, a Speed51 pay-per-view broadcast and more.


While joining Dirt Draft is as simple as clicking this link, determining who will make your starting five can be much more challenging.  Here is a look at some potential names to consider as you fill out your roster.


A Potent Combination: While a pricey one at $26,400, Carson Hocevar is an intriguing pick for tonight’s race out of the high-priced top guns. Hocevar already has one ARCA/CRA Super Series win this season, taking the checkered flag in the Show Me State Showdown at Lebanon I-44 Speedway (MO).  He’ll also be driving the car originally intended for defending Redbud 400 winner Johnny VanDoorn.  With VanDoorn away following the birth of his daughter, Hocevar has climbed in the No. 71 and already shown speed this weekend.


A Fast Champion: Greg Van Alst set fast time of the day during Sunday’s open practice sessions at Anderson Speedway, logging a lap of 12.201 seconds.  The defending ARCA/CRA Super Series champion finished sixth when the series visited Anderson on June 20, narrowly missing out on the top five.  Priced at $19,900, Van Alst could be a bargain with a shot at a strong finish on Monday.


Going the Extra 25 Miles: The distance and name of the Redbud 400 has changed several times over the years.  While no winner of the event since its reversion to 400 laps in 2017 is in Monday’s field, Steve Dorer (2011) and Dalton Armstrong (2016) both hold wins in the Redbud 300.  Dorer is available for $20,200, while Armstrong will cost you a little more at $23,000, but both have proven they can win at Anderson.


Don’t miss out on your chance to win prizes as part of Monday’s Redbud 400.  Sign up today and watch the race on Speed51’s pay-per-view broadcast.
