2007 Winchester 400 Date Announced

Winchester, IN (October 18, 2006) -- Winchester Speedway owner Charlie Shaw with Champion Racing Association, the promoters of Winchester Speedway, have announced the date for the 2007 36th Annual Winchester 400, which will be ran on Sunday, October 14th, 2007 with preliminary events on Friday, October 12th and Saturday, October 13th.

"Based on the success we had with the return of the Winchester 400 this past weekend, we are announcing the date for the 36th Annual Winchester 400 so all the fans and race teams can start planning to return next season," remarked Shaw. " The crowds were not huge but the weather may have hurt that a little. Also this is the first year we did the return of the 400 with the three-day event. The campers and so forth showed me that we are on the right track. I think we are on to something. If we stay with it a few years I believe we can make this race like it was in the old days. We want it to be a race people look forward to all year long."

The CRA Super Series will sanction the 36th Annual Winchester 400 again in 2007. It will be the fourth time that the series has sanctioned this prestigious event. Scott Hantz got to add his name to the list of Winchester 400 Champions by winning Sunday's 35th Annual Ed Martin Auto Group Winchester 400.

"We would like to congratulate Scott Hantz and owner Dick Poe on their victory and their 2006 CRA Super Series Championship," remarked R.J. Scott of Champion Racing Association. "What a way to cap off the 2006 season by winning a championship and one of short track racings most historic events in the same day. We look forward to working with Charlie Shaw to continue to build this event back to the prominence it once held. We would like to thank all the fans, sponsors and racers that helped make this past weekend a success, we hope they will all come back and support this event next year!"

Winchester Speedway owner Charlie Shaw and track promoters R.J Scott, Glenn Luckett and Greg Wood with Champion Racing Association would like to thank all the fans, sponsors, competitors, and track volunteers and workers for a great 2006 season.
