(Salem, IN) Salem Speedway welcomes back the ARCA/CRA Super Series for the 2nd consecutive year Sunday, April 24th. Last year's show brought some intense racing action with three divisions testing their skills around the high banked half-mile. This year will see more of the same with the ARCA/CRA Super Series being accompanied by the JEGS CRA All-Stars Tour Powered by Chevrolet Performance and the Lucas Oil Great American Stocks.
Salem welcomed back Super Late Models for the first time in over 12 years, last year. With USAC Legend, Kody Swanson, taking home the checkered flag. The JEGS/CRA All Stars Tour race saw another first-time winner with Louisville driver Trey Craig getting his first win with the series.
The 34 car Street Stock feature saw local racers, Chuck Barnes Sr. and Jr., test their abilities against former NASCAR star, Ken Schrader. Schrader couldn’t hold off the father and son duo, however, and Chuck Barnes Sr. took home the checkered while his son met him in victory lane for a second-place finish.
Barnes Sr. and Jr. will return to Salem to try and test their skills again against NASCAR legend Ken Schrader as we gear up for a rematch between the local heroes and the NASCAR legend.
Salem Speedway will be the place to be Sunday, April 24th. With a healthy field of cars expected for the one day show. Grandstands open at 12pm with qualifying starting at 12:30pm. Pre-race begins at 1:55pm and racing starts at 2:00pm with the JEGS/CRA All-Star Tour Pro Late Models.
