ASA/CRA Super Series
ARCA/CRA Super Series Releases Entry Form for Redbud 400
May 19, 2022
July 15, 2022 - Anderson Motor Speedway (IN) is the home of the Little 500 run traditionally the week of the Indy 500. The quarter-mile track is known for the high banks and lightning fast speeds.
The first running of this race happened in 1973 when Denny Nyari took the win. The race was contested again in 1974 and Tiny Lund was the victor. Some of the best drivers in short track racing have won this race from Dick Trickle, Mark Martin, Bob Senneker, Gary St. Amant, Junior Hanley, Kyle Busch and many more.
The race will be a 400 lap contest on the Anderson high banks. In the past the race has been run at 250, 300 and 400 laps. The race was a part of the ASA National Tour for several years at both distances.
$15,000 will await the winner of this event. The Redbud 400 is always one of the biggest checks on the CRA Super Series schedule.
Can he do it again? Well we can ask that question about several guys. However, we are talking one about Kyle Crump who won the 2021 version of the Redbud 400. Can he go back to back? Also we wonder if Dalton Armstrong can get his second win after he led 292 laps in the past. In all, Armstrong has led over 500 laps in this race.
One to keep an eye on is
Stephen Nasse who has run over 2000 laps in the Redbud 400 with three top
finishes and two in the top five. He’s not had the right combination for
victory just yet, but he likes the high-speed tracks.
In 1988 Dick Trickle won the race for the second-straight year. This would be the last time that the race was won in Consecutive years. Trickle was actually the third driver to win back-to-back races as Bob Senneker did it in 1983 and 1984, Mark Martin won in 1985 and 1986, and with Trickle taking 1987 and 1988. Other than this time period no one has won the race in back-to-back years.
Mark Martin is the only four time winner of the Redbud 400. Mark also won two Winchester 400 events in Indiana giving him five major Super Late Models wins in the state.
This is the type of race where you have to be good and lucky. The track is so tight and fast that problems can happen in a blink of an eye...and before you know it you can be swept up in an accident. There are several races in the past where the dominant car didn’t win the race.
RacingAmerica.TV will have live flag-to-flag coverage of the Redbud 400. The marquee Super Late Model race goes live at 7:30pm.
