Sandusky, OH — (May 29, 2014) — Six weeks from now BioBased USA will sponsor an event at Sandusky Speedway that has not taken place since the mid-70’s.
On a Wednesday night, the sixteenth day of the month, during the heat of July there will be one 50-lap race in the entire world featuring Supermodifieds and Sprint Cars racing together and by together we mean just that.
Just think of the magnitude of being at or racing in the only event of its kind being held anywhere with the greatest talent in the sport going for the ultimate record of “Who really is the fastest?”
With racers coming from all parts of the country to find out once and for all who is the quickest in the land while under fire it’s just about impossible to come up with a set of rules that will cover everyone that wants to compete. With this in mind, it has been decided that there will be no rules other than safety and tires.
Since most of these racers run on Hoosiers it will be cost effective to continue using them for this event with a 4-tire rule.
With a practice on Tuesday and the event the following day a good number of racers are using this time as a Prelude to the Hi-Miler making sure their racers are as ready as can be for the big one about ten days later.
On July the 16th 28 competitors will line up on the half mile Sandusky track taking aim at the $5000 first place prize. The total purse is between a low of $36,000 and a high of $38,000 based on the total amount of cars competing. Last place pays $1000 as long as the racer completes five competitive laps. There is no start and park.
Along with this historic race, BioBased USA will be presenting a huge Thrill Show for all the kids. The adults are allowed to watch as long as they cheer as loud as the kids. Performing will be Lauren, The World’s Only Female Human Bomb; The Wall of Fire; The Tower of Flames; an Auto Roll-Over; the nationally famous Elyria Motorcycle Stunt Team and an awesome Fireworks display.
All the gates open at 3pm for open testing and fan seating followed by a Pre-Show that includes an unbelievable display courtesy of North Coast Vintage Oval Racers. Jim Linder’s original wooden winged #3 Sprinter will be there with Jim Linder himself giving autographs, posing for pictures and talking about the days at Sandusky Speedway.
F-1 style qualifying commences at 5pm followed by the preliminary events at 7pm. The Intermission includes down time, race car line-up on the track and infield entertainment with the Motorsports Thrill Show. Then it’s the big one with the 50-lap BioBased USA Open Wheel Extravaganza Feature Event getting under way paced by past champion Jim Linder himself.
What better way is there to wind up an evening of Motorsports entertainment than a full-fledged Fireworks Show choreographed to patriotic music and autographs with the drivers? And you thought you were going to leave the kids at home didn’t you?
