Lucas Oil Raceway USAC Event Coming Friday Night

Entry List Released For Carb Night Classic

The much anticipated and newly named, USAC’s “The Week Of Indy” is coming up next week, leading up to the 100th running of the Indy 500.  It begins on Wednesday, May 25 at the Terre Haute Action Track, then the Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Thursday, before the finale at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indy on Friday, known as the Carb Night Classic, “The Race Before The 500”.MRTI_CARBNIGHT_POSTER

Formerly held on Saturdays, the USAC Silver Crown cars will be racing at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indy on Friday, May 27 in addition to the Cooper Tire USF2000 and Pro Mazda cars.  The event was moved to Friday, to fill a void for racing fans that who had no racing that night and more than one choice on Saturday.

Last year’s event, held on Saturday afternoon, saw Kingsurg, California driver Tanner Swanson take the victory at Lucas Oil Raceway.    Swanson has been dominant at the track, leading 385 of the last 386 laps of competition.  Swanson was followed by his brother Kody, Bobby Santos, Jerry Coons, Jr., and Aaron Pierce.

Carb Night Classic Schedule USAC                Pit gates for the Carb Night Classic will open at 9:00 AM for the USF2000 and Pro Mazda competitors and at 11:00 AM for USAC Silver Crown Series teams.  Grandstands will open at 2:40, USAC Silver Crown Series practice will be at 3:00, followed by qualifying for the Pro Mazda and USF2000 teams.  USAC qualifying will be at 5:05, followed by the USF2000 and Pro Mazda races starting at 6:10.  The Carb Night Classic for the USAC Silver Crown Cars will be held at 8:15.
