PAUL ROMINE HEADS CARQUEST FESTIVAL OF FIRE LINEUP

Champion Paul Romine heads the lineup for the CARQUEST Auto Parts Festival of Fire, July 2nd at Indianapolis Raceway Park. Romine will compete against fellow Indianapolis-resident Bruce Litton in a winner take all two-round match race.

"I have been looking forward to this race the entire season," said Romine, 51, a lifelong resident of Indianapolis and owner of Dealers Engine Sales, located on the southeast side of Indianapolis. "Bruce and I compete against each other heavily on the IHRA circuit, but it isn't everyday that we can meet at an NHRA facility and to do it in front of our hometown fans, this is going to be a bragging rights event for both of us."

Currently Litton leads the IHRA point standings with the CARQUEST-sponsored dragster of Romine just few rounds behind.

"We go from here directly to the IHRA CARQUEST Empire Nationals next weekend," Romine said. "With our new co-crew chief Bob Brandt, I would like to lay down so good laps Friday night at IRP in front of the hometown fans in preparation for next weekend when it counts in the IHRA point standings."

The CARQUEST Auto Parts Festival of Fire kicks off the July 4th weekend, Friday night, July 2nd with not only Romine vs. Litton, but also featuring 290 MPH Jet Funny Cars, car crunching Monster Trucks, and an incredible Fireworks display to end the evening.

Tickets are just $15 with children 12 and under free. Gates open at 11:00 a.m. and with racing beginning at 7:30 p.m. Stop by a local Indianapolis CARQUEST Auto Parts Stores for tickets or call 317-291-4090 for more information.
