TULSA, Okla. – With the racing bug becoming unbearable, Blake Hahn will drop a Rider 410 engine between the rails of his JR1 Chassis and venture to South Dakota for the Open Wheel Nationals presented by Real-Geese Silhouette at Park Jefferson Int’l Speedway on Saturday.
Hahn’s debut in 410 sprint car competition, the ASCS National Tour regular is excited about the new experience.
“I’m looking forward to this weekend might be putting it lightly,” chuckled Hahn.
“Getting to try a 410 is something we have been working towards for a couple of years so it should be fun. Definitely going to be a learning curve with power and setup differences, but we have to start somewhere and at least it’s at a track I’ve won at before.”
Referencing his debut at the four-tenths mile oval in 2016, Hahn topped the field in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action on July 28. An eight-hour trek for Hahn, the chance to race is something the team simply could not pass up.
“As soon as we saw this was happening, we were scrambling to make sure we were entered,” Hahn said. “More than anything, I feel like we all need to thank Terry [McCarl] and Adam [Adamson] for getting this done. Terry supports the ASCS National Tour by having us at Southern Iowa Speedway for the Ultimate Challenge, so we’re definitely going to support him.”
