O'REILLY RACEWAY PARK ANNOUNCES 2010 SCHEDULE

INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 4, 2010) O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis has released the racing schedule for the 2010 racing season and a wide variety of thrilling events are on the calendar for the coming season. Highlighting the schedule will be the Kroger 200 benefitting Riley Hospital for Children, NASCAR Nationwide race. This race was recently named one of the top Nationwide races of the past season and the 2003 race was called the top Nationwide race of the past decade.

"The Nationwide race at O'Reilly Raceway Park has long been a favorite of the competitors and fans alike," said Ron Anderson, general manager of O'Reilly Raceway Park. "We anxiously await the start of season and holding events such as Kroger SpeedFest, Mac Tools U. S. Nationals and many of the weekly events that make this multi-use facility one of the premier racing venues in the country."

Kroger SpeedFest returns on July 22nd, 23rd and 24th with thrilling USAC, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series racing action on the lightening fast .686-mile ORP oval under a summer sky. The oval will also see racing action as the Advance Racing Association (ARA) returns during the year as does the ASA Late models for their yearly visit.

The 56th annual Mac Tools U. S. Nationals returns over Labor Day weekend on September 1st through the 6th as the stars of the Full Throttle Drag Racing Series vie for the most coveted trophy in drag racing. Last season Tony Schumacher, Ashley Force Hood, Jeg Coughlin, and Hector Arana took home the top prize at the end of the event.

The Goodguys Hot Rod Nationals returns in June for a weekend full of classic hot rods exciting racing action. This will mark the 22nd season Goodguys has visited the facility and is one of the top events on the drag strip.

In April the NHRA Lucas Oil Divisional race takes to the strip in a weekend filled with exciting racing action. This will mark the 3rd annual Season Kick-Off Celebration event and many exciting events will take place during the course of the weekend.

The schedule remains busy as weekly drag racing events will take place from March through October. The VP Fuels E. T. Bracket Racing Series, the Thursday Night Test & Tunes, and Tuesday Night Street Legals take to track during the course of the summer. O'Reilly Raceway Park will continue to offer weekly and monthly specials for those in our O'Reilly Tuesday Night Street Legal during the season.

"We hope that this schedule is a mix of events that have made us famous in the racing community and new events that will allow new visitors to come to the facility," continued Anderson. "The season will be here before we know it and we can't wait to welcome our guests."
