For the 26th straight year next week, NASCAR’s top Stock Car stars will gather at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway for another 400-mile test of speed, skill, and bravery. As is so often the case, when there is racing to be had at the Brickyard, you can also find great racing just to the west at Indy’s great short track, Lucas Oil Raceway.
On Saturday, September 7, the night before the Brickyard 400, the nation’s top Late Model stars are also ready to gather together, to settle who is the best among them, in a winner-take-all, no-holds-barred contest for $10,000. That, is what the first ever Speed51 Super Select is all about.
With invitations now extended to dozens of the hottest Super Late Model drivers over the past year, the entry list continues to build for the 75-lap big dance, which will be run in three 25-lap segments, keeping drivers on their toes.
See short track all-stars like Bubba Pollard, Harrison Burton, Stephen Nasse, Donnie Wilson, Casey Johnson, Brian Campbell and more leave nothing on the table as they go at it for the full 75 laps.
The fight that’s also expected for the 30-lap ‘Open’ race will also be intense, with Super Late Model drivers who didn’t not make the invitee list, try to crash the party and steal away that $10,000 later in the night.
The evening’s events will also feature one of the nation’s top level’s of Open-Wheel racing as the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series will be providing their own thunder, in the 100-lap Rich Vogler Classic.
