Thursday night’s “Hoosier Hundred” at the Indiana State Fairgrounds has been postponed due to overnight heavy rain that left the track far too wet for the 100-lap event.
Track Enterprises and USAC officials waited for the track to come around after continuous precipitation overnight and into the morning hours saturated the Indy Mile racing surface. But the surface was unable to withstand the showers, giving officials no choice but to put a halt to tonight’s racing activities.
Track Enterprises and USAC are currently discussing a makeup date for the 63rd running of the “Hoosier Hundred” featuring the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series presented by TRAXXAS. Stay tuned to http://www.usacracing.com/ and its social media networks for further announcements.
The “Week of Indy” continues Friday night, May 26, at Lucas Oil Raceway with the Silver Crown Series’ “Carb Night Classic.” The 100-lap event will be the first of two appearances by the Silver Crown cars at LOR in 2017.
Spectator gates for Friday night’s “Carb Night Classic” at Lucas Oil Raceway open at 2:45pm, hot laps at 4pm, ProSource Qualifying at 5:30, with racing set to begin at 6:30pm.
