Twin 100s Take on Toledo This Sunday; Mike Eddy Enters
TOLEDO OH (7-29-04) Kawkawlin, MI driver Mike Eddy has filed an entry for the Sunoco Super Series portion of the Twin 100's, set for this Sunday, August 1 at Toledo Speedway. The Main Event Late Model Series will also compete on the same race card in their own 100 lap feature race. The unique race card, showcasing both stock-bodied and outlaw-bodied Late Models in separate 100 lap contests, was washed out by rain May 30 and reset for this Sunday.
Eddy was one of the men to beat in the 1970's 1980's and 1990's in the Tri-State area. Known for his hard-charging style, Eddy was one of the legendary car builder Ed Howe's protege's as he scored victory after victory throughout the Midwest. Mike will wheel the no. 7 Chevy Monte Carlo owned by JVEE-M Racing of Gahanna, Ohio in the Sunoco Super Series portion of the Twin 100's Sunday night at Toledo.
The Indiana-based Sunoco Super Series cars are outfitted with template, or stock-bodies. Canadian superstar Jr. Hanley and 2003 champion Bobby Parsley, along with Johnny Belott, Brian Campbell, Freddie Campbell, Scott Hantz, Scott Baker, Dave Kuhlman and the Sunoco regulars will battle for top honors in the 100 lap event on Toledo's ½ mile, high-banked paved oval. A field of 30 Sunoco Super Series cars is expected Sunday.
2003 Main Event Series champ Rich Rohrer is set to defend his title and is also the defending Toledo race winner for the Main Event Series portion of the Twin 100's. The outlaw-bodied style cars should also have a field of close to 30 machines at the Glass City oval this Sunday. Rohrer, of Canton, OH will be joined by drivers such as Tim Ice, Jerry Cook, Kuhlman, Hantz, Tim Felver, Belott and many more as they also will tackle the Glass City oval for 100 laps August 1.
This unique concept of 2 Late Model divisions competing on the same night originated at Toledo several seasons ago. After a year layoff, the event was again added to the Toledo schedule to continue to bring race fans top-notch traveling series to the ½ mile speedplant.
To accommodate the traveling race fans and race teams, the Twin 100's have special start times for this Sunday; The pits will open at 10:30, practice will begin at 2, time trials are set for 4 and racing will start for this event only at 6 p.m.
Toledo Speedway is located on Benore Road at the I-75/Alexis Road exit on the Michigan-Ohio border. The track phone number is 419-727-1100.
