(Bloomington, Ind. - July 29, 2001) The sprint cars have had a night off; and they have only a week to get ready for the INDIANA FIVE CROWN; and the sprint car season is winding down, so just about everybody should be here for this race.

Laborers Union # 741 will be joining us for an exciting evening of racing entertainment. These guys work hard; but they will be taking a well deserved break to watch the Sprint Cars, O'Neal Wood Products modifieds, and bombers compete on the famous red clay.

Kevin Briscoe is leading the Bloomington Speedway points race; but Derek Scheffel and Kevin Thomas aren't far behind. Eric Burns, Kevin Chambers, Josh Cunningham, Eric Roberts, Dave Peperak, Marc Jessup, and Wil Newlin make up the rest of the top ten in points. These guys will all be trying to protect their positions and improve them, if they can. Eric Roberts is having an unusually successful rookie season. He has missed only two features; and he has 4th place finish. Roberts is getting a lot of seat time running at other tracks as well.

Matt Boknecht, Adam Sasser, and John DeMoss are atop the modified points; and Sasser is coming off of a win on August 27. He will be attempting to become the first modified driver to win two features in a row and to join Matt Boknecht as a three time winner at Bloomington Speedway.

August 10 will be the only time that the Bombers will visit Bloomington Speedway red clay this season. Many new racers get their start racing bombers. While these drivers are short on experience, they are long on enthusiasm. Also they almost never get a chance to run a heavy track like the one that they'll find at Bloomington Speedway. They will be pulling out all of the stops to turn in a good performance and make the most of their visit to the famous red clay. They will be running for $300 to win with $100 of the prize money has been provided by Racers' Alley South.

Come to Bloomington Speedway early to secure your favorite spot for the evening. Select your dinner from the delicious food available at the concession stands, bring a book that you've been meaning to read, or simply sit and enjoy the beauty of the area surrounding the red clay of Bloomington Speedway.

Grandstand admission for this special race is only $10 and pit admission is $20. As always at Bloomington Speedway, children 12 and under are admitted free with a paying adult. Coolers are permitted; but glass containers are strictly prohibited. Parking and overnight camping are both free. Pits gates will open at 4:30; and the grandstands will open at 5:30. Hot laps will begin at 6:30.
