SALEM, IN – Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery closes out its 2013 season on Sunday afternoon, November 3rd with the Six Sigma Redneck Enduro 100 on the Roval.
The Six Sigma Redneck Enduro 100, for the Portland Recycling Front Wheel Drive Stocks, follows a highly popular road racing type event which took place earlier this season at Salem. The June 2nd race was contested on a circuit utilizing the infield short-track and a portion of the half-mile high banks with both left and right-hard turns. The same track layout is being used for the upcoming race.
“I think we knew immediately after the June race ended that we would be scheduling another roval event for this season, said track general manager Richard Deaton. “The race was very well received by everyone involved, including the drivers, race teams and fans.”
One of those still excited about the June 2nd event is Derrick Bradshaw, who outdistanced 28 other drivers to win the first ever road race at Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery.
“It was the best race that I have ever been in,” said Bradshaw, a two-time Jeffersonville Sportsdrome Speedway track champion. “The race was everything that I expected and more. When I hit the high banks it was like (awesome).”
Bradshaw of Shepherdsville, Ky., said he would like nothing better than to record back-to-back roval wins.
“I would love to come back and win again,” said the 26-year-old Bradshaw, who is planning on bringing the same car to Salem that he drove to victory in June.
A healthy field of twenty-nine cars was on hand for the inaugural roval race, but more are expected for the Six Sigma Redneck Enduro 100.
“With most area tracks closed for the season I wouldn’t be surprised to see the car count significantly higher for the upcoming race,” said Deaton. “We have been receiving calls and inquiries from teams that don’t normally race at Salem.”
Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery will again be giving away free Hoosier Lottery scratch-off tickets to several lucky fans, age 18 and older, throughout the day on November 3rd.
Spectator gates open at 11 a.m., with practice at 11:00, followed by racing at 1 p.m. (EST).
