FAST Heads West For Hoosier State Double

FAST 410 Sprint Car Series Top Story Logo

By Aaron Fry
With four races already in the books for the 2023 season, Rawson, Ohio’s Ricky Peterson leads to Ti22 Performance FAST On Dirt point standings. However, Evans City, Pennsylvania’s Brandon Spithaler won the last race at Knox Raceway and closed the gap. Jordan Ryan, Sean Rayhall and Justin Clark round out the current top 5. Some tough luck early has left some heavy-hitters outside the top 5 as Jack Sodeman Jr, Mitch Harble, Jeremy Weaver, Kasey Jedrzejek, Trey Jacobs, Danny Sams III and Reece Saldana make up the top 12.

Several other Indiana, Ohio and Michigan drivers have indicated they will be on hand this weekend as the FAST tour makes some history. Friday night will mark the first ever appearance for the touring 410 winged sprints at Circle City Raceway in Indianapolis. Then, a night later, the tour will tackle the Montpelier Motor Speedway an hour and a half to the north. Saturday’s show at Montpelier will take on some special significance and is sponsored by Indy Race Parts in an effort to make FAST a part of the 1st annual “Jake and Jenson Memorial”. FAST is very pleased to have been chosen to be included in this special memorial event in honor of 2 race fans from right in the small town of Montpelier, tragically taken from us a year ago. We also thank Bernie Stuebgen for his support in making this show happen.

Adult general admission will be $15 with seniors 65+, military, first responders and teachers admitted for $12. Kids 10 and under are free. Pit passes will be $35.
