Hoosier Autumn Classic Joins AELMT Schedule


LAKE ODESSA, Mich. – The American Ethanol Late Model Tour has added an additional event to the series schedule at Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway.

The event will be held Sept. 26-28 and will be known as the Hoosier Autumn Classic. The three day event will pay out a combined $17,000 to race winners. An open practice will begin the weekend on Sept. 26 for drivers to prepare for the unique format.

Friday will feature a pair of $2,500 to win, 25-lap qualifier events. Qualifying race one will be lined straight up from the heat race finish.  After those 25 laps are complete, lead lap cars will be completely inverted, and that will be the starting line-up for qualifying race two. The top four point earners from the qualifying races will be locked in to the Hoosier Autumn Classic on Saturday.

The final night of the weekend will feature the second largest payout of the season, when $12,000 will be on the line during a 50-lap main event.  On top of the large payout, the action on the track will be exciting for another reason as well – the Hoosier Autumn Classic marks the final race of the season before the Championships from I-96 Speedway.
