JEFFERSON, GA – Free Tires.
That’s what one lucky competitor will receive if they draw the right pill at the Hoosier Racing Tires World Crown 300 Pole Qualifying Draw Party at Gresham Motorsports Park on Friday, August 8.
The event – open to fans and competitors alike – will be held from 8:00-10:30 p.m. in the GMP Main Grandstand Concession Area. The highlight of the event will be a lottery-style drawing that will determine the qualifying order for the 31st-Annual World Crown 300 to be contested on Saturday, August 9.
This qualifying selection process should provide plenty of excitement as it will not only determine what position each driver will time trial in for Saturday’s 300-lap racing classic, but it will also determine the order in which teams will select their tires for Saturday’s event.
And now, thanks to Hoosier Racing Tires, the driver’s pot just got a little sweeter.
“We’ll actually have a drawing prior to the qualifying lottery to determine what pill will be the lucky Hoosier Racing Tires number,” said GMP general manager John Close. “Then we’ll put it back in the lottery drum and the driver that pulls that number during the regular qualifying draw will get a free set of Hoosier Racing Tires. It’s going to be a lot of fun to see who pulls qualifying pill number one, and also who pulls the lucky Hoosier Racing Tires pill. Wouldn’t it be crazy if it turned out to be the same one? We’ll find out on Friday, August 8.”
To be eligible to win the Hoosier Racing Tires, teams/drivers must have their World Crown 300 entries in to GMP no later than Monday, August 4.
The 2014 World Crown 300 will officially get underway on Wednesday, August 6 at Noon Eastern Time with the opening of the GMP campground area. Self Contained/Rough Camping is free of charge in GMP designated areas and is not permitted in the Infield Pit or Trackside Parking areas.
Thursday, August 7 will see the first on-track action of the 31st-Annual World Crown 300 with an optional test for all Super Late Models, GMP Outlaw Late Models and GMP Pro Trucks from 5-8:30 p.m.
There will be a second optional test – again from 5-8:30 p.m. – for all ‘Crown’ entries on Friday, August 8.
Both the Thursday and Friday test sessions are open for free fan viewing from the Gresham Motorsports Park Trackside Parking area.
