Mother Nature was less than cooperative but the racing was wild this weekend at the Indianapolis Speedrome. What's good for Central Indiana farmers is tough on the Hoosier race scene but a lot of hard work and cooperation from the racer's got the show on the road.

Friday, 7/27/2001 -The 2001 championships are in the home stretch and things are heating up in the Carmel Sod Modified division. Kelly Whiteman took Friday's 50-Lap feature, chased to the line by Doug Greig and Scott George. A mad scramble behind the lead pack featured a hard charging Billy George for fourth and an airborne Chad Warweg in fifth. Billy Boyer had entered the night leading the points but was first out of the main dropping him back in the standings.

The Race City Auto Sales Legend Cars went to Indy's Rodney Smith over T.J. Sneva and Greig. The Yardarm Bomber Figure-8's were a duel to the line with Scott Settles by some bumper chrome over Rick Howard. The Bandolero main went to Tony Sanders and Jimmy Hardcastle and Jerry Green snagged Sunshine Cafe Roadrunners features.

Saturday, July 28, 2001 - The fans and officials of the Indianapolis Speedrome wish to thank the racers of the Sunshine Cafe Roadrunner division who made the racing possible after rain struck late in the evening. As the sprinkles began Jimmy Kirby snagged the win in the Chuck's Race Car Parts Stocks over Al Fullenkamp and Corey Turner.

Casey White became the first rookie in the Bryant's 76 Racing Fuels Late Model division to score a feature victory as he triumphed in the 25-Lap Oval main. Late in the evening R. J. Norton, Jr. took his second Figure-8 win after a torrid duel with Kenny Stewart and Fred Bear, Jr.

Roadrunner wins went to Kerry Wright and Kevin Corbett both scoring their first feature wins.
