(PETERSEN MEDIA)- Friday and Saturday night the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions invade the Kokomo Speedway for the inaugural Dirt Classic Indiana, that will offer the Saturday night winner a Golden Ticket into the $20,000-to-win, $1,000-to-start Dirt Classic set for September 20th at Lincoln Speedway.
Friday and Saturday night will mark the lone weekend of winged action at the Indiana short track as a talented field of cars is expected to be on hand vying for Friday night’s $5000-to-win top prize and Saturday’s hefty $12,500-to-win prize and coveted Golden Ticket into the Dirt Classic.
The action on Friday night’s prelude show will be a standard Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions format with drivers also receiving event points for their finish, while Saturday’s Dirt Classic Indiana program will feature duel heat races, and feature events. Following heat races, point totals form Friday and Saturday night heat races will be tabulated and the Top-20 will transfer directly into the feature event, while the remaining drivers will look to race their way into the show as they chase after the final four positions.

Heading into this weekend’s event, 2016 Ohio Speedweek Champion, Chad Kemenah leads the point standings on the strength of a very consistent Speedweek. Kememanh may only have one win to his credit, but comes in with a 48-point advantage over Dale Blaney, and a 96-point cushion over Sheldon Haudenschild, who both have five wins to date.
While Kemenah will be looking to keep those two behind him, other drivers expected to be on hand this weekend include Cap Henry, Danny Holtgraver, Kraig Kinser, TJ Michael, Lee Jacobs, Caleb Helms, Andrew Pelker, and a list of others.
Another unique factor to this weekend’s Dirt Classic Indiana will be non-wing drivers bolting on a wing and taking on the Arctic Cat Circuit of Champions. A few notables expected to cross over include Bryan Clauson, Brady Bacon, Tyler Courtney, Chris Windom as well as a few others that USAC has to offer.
