Cold temperatures combined with afternoon precipitation forced the postponement of the 45th running of the Tony Hulman Classic at the Terre Haute Action Track on Wednesday, May 20. No reschedule date has been announced at this time.
The Hulman Classic was an Amsoil USAC Sprint Car Series event which also had UMP Modifieds on the schedule. Terre Haute’s next event will be on Sunday, June 7 with the UMP Modified Summit Nationals, running for a $1,000 top prize. The Pro Late Models will be making their first ever appearance at the track.
Race fans will now turn their attention to the 62nd Annual Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, which is set to take place tomorrow, Thursday, May 21. 34 USAC Silver Crown wheelmen are entered along with a stellar field of UMP Modifieds that includes Ken Schrader and Kenny Wallace. Both fields of cars have great pre-entry lists, better than in recent years.
Pit gates for the Hoosier Hundred open at 12:00, with grandstands at 3:00, hot laps at 5:00, qualifying at 6:00, and racing at 7:00.
