It was a night for old friends in the winners circle at the Indianapolis Speedrome Saturday, April 14. In the Bryant 76 Racing Fuels Late Models 26-year racing veteran George Sutton paced the field to win the 25-lap oval main. 21-year veteran Jack Dossey, Jr., off Bill Tunny, Jr., 1999 champion Bobby Douthitt to win the 35-lap figure-8. Points leader Bruce Tunny was scratched for the night with a broken pinion gear. Dossey also claimed the trophy dash with Douthitt taking fast time. Heat and preliminaries went to Rodney Sizemore, Jeff Hizer, Keith Richee and Fred Bear, Jr.
The Chuck's Race Car Parts Stocks 25-lap feature went to Jack Smith, whose roots at the Speedrome stretch back to the Fifties. Smith held off Greg Jines and Joe Sheedy in the closing laps of a hard-fought race.
