MATT HAGANS TO MAKE HIS RETURN WITH THE CRA SUPER SERIES AT WINCHESTER SPEEDWAY
Salem, IN (May 9, 2005) -- Brownsburg, Indiana native Matt Hagans, a CRA Super Series regular from 1997 through the 2002 season, will make a return to the series for the Manning Service 100 Presented By Spray Power at Winchester Speedway on Sunday, May 22nd. Hagans will be piloting a Bill Rievley prepared machine on the track were he scored one of his four CRA Super Series victories.
"When I heard the series was going back to Winchester Speedway, I just knew I had to find a car and race there again in a late model," remarked Hagans, the owner of Eagle Creek Aviation Services in Indianapolis, Indiana. "I just love the high banked tracks, especially Winchester and Salem. I have always run well at those tracks, there a lot of fun, especially in a late model. Hopefully I can still drive one after driving the heavier ARCA RE/Max Series cars."
Hagans has run selected ARCA RE/Max Series events since leaving the CRA Super Series. In 12 career ARCA RE/Max Series starts since 2002, he has 4 top 5 and 6 top10 finishes including a career-best 2nd at Michigan International Speedway in 2004. Hagans finished 5th in this past February's ACRA RE/Max Series event at Daytona International Speedway in a team back up car. Hagans is fielding cars this season for Joey Miller in an effort to win the 2005 ARCA RE/Max Series Championship.
The Winchester Speedway Grand Re-Opening Weekend will kick off with an Open Practice on Saturday, May 21st. Pits open at 10AM, and the track will be open for practice until 6PM. On Sunday, May 22nd Pit Gates open at 8AM, Spectator Gates open at 10AM, the racing program will begin at 2PM.
