BLOOMINGTON, IN (July 6, 2003) - Bloomington Speedway will host another night of exciting racing action at Bloomington Speedway on Friday, July 11. The evening's racing will feature non winged sprint cars, O'Neal Wood Products modifieds, and Tire & Wheel Center super stocks.

Mike and Judy Miles are dedicated to provide their fans with the best possible racing program each Friday night and to making the fans visits to Bloomington Speedway as pleasant as possible. There are many things that they control such as the maintenance of the facility, the preparation of the racing surface, and the quality and economy of the food and drinks in the concession stands. However, there is one area where they have to have help; and that one area is probably the most important - the quality of the competition. There they need help; and they get it.

Each Friday night about a hundred teams show up to compete for that night's feature win and the season's championship. We feel that we have the best competitors around. In celebration of our 80th season of racing, Mike and Judy have decided to say thank you to the competitors in the best way they can. On July 11, the racers will be running for extra prize money and double points. The sprint car feature will pay $2,000 to win and both the O'Neal Wood Products Modified and the Tire & Wheel Center Super Stock features will each pay $750 to win with proper decals.

We expect the pits to be filled to overflowing with teams attempting to pick up the extra prize money and points. This will give the fans more of what they come to Bloomington Speedway to see - GREAT RACING.

This special show is just to say thanks to the fans and the competitors. There is no increase in the admission fee either in the pits or on the hill.
