IRP Reschedules Rained-Out CARS Series Race

INDIANAPOLIS (May 13, 2004) Indianapolis Raceway Park has rescheduled the May 1, 2004, rained-out Championship Auto Racing Series (CARS) race. The new race date is June 12, 2004. Featured during the course of the evening will be the CARS Series Turbines Inc. Stock Cars, CARS Series Voris Construction Super Trucks, Allison Legacy Series and Baby Grands.

"We were fortunate that we had a Saturday night open in our busy race schedule," said Mike Myslinski, director of operations at Indianapolis Raceway Park. "By rescheduling the race we are giving our fans and suite holders another opportunity to attend a fantastic night of racing on the IRP oval."

Tickets for the event are only $12.00 for adults and children 12 and under is free. Suite holders should retain their tickets from the May race and use them for the June event. A revised schedule of events will be released soon.

One of five drag racing facilities owned and operated by the National Hot Rod Association, IRP was built in 1960 and has presented organized racing events since 1961. From March through October, the facility hosts more than 120 dates of racing on three tracks, a quarter-mile drag strip, a .686-mile paved oval and a 2.5-mile road course. Home to drag racing's biggest event, the NHRA U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend, the drag strip runs more than 50 days of point-to-point action, from national events to street legal community programs. The oval track draws racing's biggest events, including annual visits from the NASCAR Busch and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series to five annual USAC races, and an exclusive Saturday Night Series. The road course provides a home for several racing sanctions, such as SCCA, while providing an ideal resource for driving schools, corporate outings and open-road tests for professional drivers.
