Anderson hosts Late Model weekend

For the next two weeks the focus of stock car racing will be centered on central Indiana with big event scheduled at Anderson Speedway and Indianapolis.

Anderson Speedway is hosting this coming weekend two nights of late model action on the high-banked quarter-mile oval.

Action starts Friday at 7:30 p.m. with the CRA/JEGS All Star Tour drivers competing in a 100-lap feature and a 75-lap feature for the CRA Sportsman Late Models.

The highlight of the weekend will take Saturday with the running of the Stoops Freightliner Red Bud 300, also starting at 7:30 p.m.

A two-day ticket is available at the track for $30.

With $10,000 to the winner of the Red Bud 300 the race is attracting some of the top names from around the country.

Michigan driver Johnny VanDoorn, a three-time CRA Super Series champion, is eligible for the $100,000 bonus if he wins the Red Bud 300 and the Winchester 400. VanDoorn won the first leg of the JEGS Triple Crown earlier this year at Berlin Raceway.

VanDoorn said he isn’t thinking about the $100,000 potential bonus.

“If you think about the $100,000, it will mess up your mind,” he said. “I want to win the Red Bud, it’s one of the top five short track races in the country.”

Already among the entries for the race are former winners Scott Hantz, Steve Dorer and defending champion Ross Kenseth.

In 2010 and 2011 the Red Bud was voted the best finish in a short track race on the 51 Sports website. Hantz and Dorer scored last lap wins in both of those years.

Included on the entry list are Erik Jones, winner of the 2012 Snowball Derby, T.J. Reaid, Kyle Benjamin and Bubba Pollard. Drivers with ties to central Indiana on the entry list include Kenny Tweedy, Rick Turner, Joe Beaver and Eddie VanMeter.
