Sunday afternoon, the official inaugural Veteran’s Memorial race will take place. It is the intent of the organizers that the concert, the grand prix and the midget races throughout the weekend will help the community to celebrate its racing heritage.
This event is a partnering of many local organizations including the following: City of Rushville, Rush County Fair Board, Rushville Chamber of Commerce, Heart of Rushville, Riverside Park Organizing Committee, Rush County School Corporation and, of course, INTAT.
“We have found that Rush County is great at hosting events and we think that the weekend of events will only go to further that fact,” added Sandy Fussner, director of the Rushville Chamber of Commerce.
