Corporate sponsors and businesses will have a chance to join in the fun by signing-up for the “local celebrity” races.
After the local champion is determined, it will be time for IKS qualifying and IKS Pre-Finals.
That evening will conclude with a midget race at the fairgrounds starting at 6 p.m.
Sunday will include practice for the IKS competing drives, followed by the IKS final events.
Keep in mind the exact details of the week are still being developed by the community volunteer board and the sanctioning body.
“We hope we can get people to come to town to recognize Rushville’s rich racing history, and for our guests to gain a better understanding of what a fantastic racing community Rushville really is. People looking forward to events in Rushville and making plans to spend a weekend here is a very good thing in my opinion,” Pavey said.
There soon will be flyers and brochures around town promoting the event.
If you would like to get involved in volunteering for the event contact the Chamber of Commerce.
Organizers believe that the sheer scale of an event this large will be an enormous undertaking for the community, but also believe that it will become a memorable tradition for our community.
The event’s proceeds will go to support local worth-while volunteer organizations.
The following races will be locally organized through Sandy Fussner at the Chamber of Commerce.
MAYOR’S RACE: Rushville’s mayor will race against other state-wide mayors for the Mayor’s Cup Trophy.
COMMUNITY CHALLENGE: There will be a series of heat races between the Corporate Sponsors/Event Sponsor and local individuals and companies whose choose to “buy a ride” ($100/kart, karts provided by IKS).
COMMUNITY CHALLENGE: “Buy-in.” Sign-up sheet and more information available at City Hall and the Chamber of Commerce.
