Winchester, IN – Winchester Speedway has been home for the Vores Compact Touring Series since the series was formed in 2012. The series will return to the “World’s Fastest Half-Mile” for three races in 2021 as part of their tenth season of racing.
VCTS will make their first appearance at Winchester on Tuesday, May 18 as part of the Fly Over States 150. The tour will join the ARCA/CRA Super Series and ARCA Midwest Tour Super Late Models for the inaugural event.
The series returns to the central eastern Indiana racetrack on a traditional weekend with a rebranded event. VCTS will be in the spotlight as the first main event of the King of the Highbanks weekend on Saturday, September 4.
One month later, VCTS will once again decide a series champion at Winchester on Friday, October 15 to kick off the 50th Winchester 400 weekend. The points-paying finale has been held at Winchester every year since the series’ inception.
“Our guys love Winchester Speedway; it’s one of the most famous racetracks in the world. It’s an amazing thing to be a part of not one, not two, but three big races at Winchester,” said the Vores Compact Touring Series Director of Racing Operations, Dan Redmond. “Our guys are definitely looking forward to the Fly Over States 150 as a new event for our series.”
The Vores Compact Touring Series has contested 31 races at Winchester, far more than any other track the series has competed at. The track holds a special place in the heart of the series after getting their start at the track.
“The first couple of years, the bulk of our races for VCTS were at Winchester Speedway,” said Redmond. “It’s something that with the traditions of the Winchester 400 and the speed and the high banks of Winchester, there’s no place in the country like it.”
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.
