ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS Ready to Battle at Anderson Speedway SaturdayCRA_admin
Salem, Indiana (Wednesday, April 22, 2015) – The ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS will return to action this Saturday night at Anderson Speedway, the famous high-banked quarter mile racetrack located in Anderson, Indiana, which has hosted more Super Series events than any other track since the series’ first ever event on Saturday, April 26, 1997. Anderson Speedway has hosted a total of 56 series events to date. Former two time series champion Brian Ross is the all-time series victory leader at Anderson Speedway with nine victories.
This will be the only opportunity for the ARCA/CRA Super Series teams to get some racing on the tight quarter mile prior to the prestigious Stoops Freightliner Redbud 300, which will take place on July 18th. With the support of local business Mitch Smith Auto Service, Saturday’s event will now pay $4000 to win and $2000 for second, which is an additional $1000 to win and an additional $500 for second.
A tough group of racers are entered for Saturday’s Madison County Community Health Center 125 topped by Chicagoland veteran Eddie Hoffman who will be piloting the always tough TK Racing #71. Hoffman has nine series victories to his credit including a win at Anderson Speedway in what was the Anderson 400 in 2005. Hoffman is looking to have a good run Saturday in preparation for the Redbud 300.
Also entered is fellow Illinois racer Trent Snyder, a three time winner at Anderson Speedway in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour. Snyder has moved up from the JEGS Tour and will run a limited schedule with the ARCA/CRA Super Series in 2015.
2013 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Champion Cody Coughlin is entered. Coughlin picked up his first series win at Winchester Speedway on Labor Day last year. Coughlin is running a schedule of ARCA Racing Series and Super Late Model events in 2015, and hopes to make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut later this season.
