FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The“Rumble in Fort Wayne will expand to include two divisions utilizing 600cc-powered dirt cars, event organizer Tony Barhorst has announced.
Unrestricted and restricted non-winged 600cc modified midgets will join midgets, winged outlaw modified midgets, karts and quarter midgets in the 16th annual indoor event on Dec. 27-28 at the Memorial Coliseum Expo Center. Complete racing programs are scheduled each day, with an optional practice session Dec. 26 on the sixth-mile indoor concrete track.
“After much discussion on our 600 classes, I have decided to add both unrestricted and restricted dirt-only 600 divisions,” Barhorst said. “When I say dirt only, I certainly mean it as these cars will be teched closely to Indiana outdoor dirt 600 rules. We will be adding rules soon to assure that these are not specialty cars.”
Cars may be entered in only one class. Teams that wish to enter more than one class must have different cars. The winged outlaw modified midgets, also powered by 600cc engines, will return with nearly the same rules as last year, he said.
“Adjustments will be made to our schedule to allow these three classes to be a part of the event,” Barhorst said.
