BLOOMINGTON, IN (June 29) - On July 4, Bloomington Speedway will feature our three regular classes - non winged sprint cars, O'Neal Wood Products modifieds, and Tire & Wheel Center super stocks. In addition, we'll have a spectacular ariel fireworks display courtesy of Bloomington Powersports. To make this even a better deal for the fans, discount coupons will be available at Big Red Liquor Stores.

Mike and Judy Miles have pulled out all of the stops to make this one of the best shows of the year by running all three of our regular classes along with the spectacular fireworks display. This is a don't miss show. Get a group of friends together and join us for a great evening of racing. You'll enjoy one of the area's best fireworks displays at no additional charge.

Going into Friday's competition Justin Marvel (373) holds an 18 point lead over Kevin Briscoe (355) in the sprint car points race; and three time Bloomington Speedway sprint car champion Derek Scheffel (336) is only 19 point further back. Kenny Carmichael (323), Mike Hunnicutt (308), Kevin Thomas (282), Shawn Krockenberger (280), Kevin Chambers (280), Bobby Stines (275), and Jon Sciscoe (269) make up the balance of the top ten in points. Since Kevin Thomas has announced his retirement and is not expected to compete Friday night, he will almost certainly fall out of the top ten after July 4 competition.

In the O'Neal Wood Products modified division, Ray Humphrey (405) holds a 41 point lead over Shelby Miles (364). Miles car suffered some pretty severe damage at Lincoln Park Speedway Saturday night; but you can bet that he'll do everything possible to get it repaired in time for this Friday night's competition. Jeff Bland, Jr. (340) is third in the points ahead of Brady Short (337), Jesse Cramer (330), Clint DeMoss (324), J.P. Karpowicz (319), J.P. Hume (310), Matt Bex (306), and Greg Deckard (292).

In the Tire & Wheel Center super stock division, defending champion Greg Kendall (371) holds a 22 point lead over Jack Frye (349). Chris Deweese (346), Ben DuBois (340), Chris Hillman (340), Danny Harris (315), Lee Hobbs (313), Mel Bigham (304), Ralph Groomer (295), and Steve Hollars make up the balance of the top ten.

As competitive as our regular drivers are, the real star of a Bloomington Speedway racing program is the track itself. Just about everyone who comes to Bloomington Speedway for the first time raves about the beautifully manicured racing surface. The rest of the facility is equally well-kept; and the view from the grandstand is simply beautiful.

Pit gates will open at 4:30 PM, the grandstand gates will open at 5:30 PM, hot laps will start at 6:30 PM, and racing will begin at 7:30 PM. General admission is $10 for this event; and pit admission is $20. Children are admitted free to the grandstand when accompanied by a paying adult. Overnight camping is permitted. Coolers are allowed; but no glass containers please.
