IRP Releases Tentative 2005 Weekly Drag Racing Schedule

INDIANAPOLIS (January 13, 2005) Indianapolis Raceway Park has released the tentative 2005 weekly drag racing schedule, it was announced today. The weekly schedule doesn't include dates for Super Chevy, Goodguys or any other special drag racing events.

"Many of our drag racers have jobs during the week," said Mike Myslinski, director of racing operations at IRP. "By giving them the schedule this early in the year it allows them to plan vacation time and gives them a head start to prepare for the upcoming racing season."

The full 2005 drag racing and oval schedule will be released in the coming weeks.

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 Series, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and three USAC races, including the 60th Annual Night Before the 500. 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.
