BROWNSBURG, Ind. – Non-winged sprint cars will be on the card when the ARCA Menards Series visits Lucas Oil Raceway on July 3.

The event will run under rules similar to those utilized at nearby Anderson (Ind.) Speedway. Non-winged sprints were popular for years at Lucas Oil Raceway before USAC stopped sanctioning events on paved ovals for the USAC sprint car and midget divisions.

This is the second non-winged sprint car event announced for Lucas Oil Raceway this year. Must See Racing is sanctioning the inaugural Indy Summer Nationals, featuring non-winged sprint cars, on June 18-20 at Lucas Oil Raceway.

The last non-winged sprint car race held at Lucas Oil Raceway took place in 2011, with Bobby Santos winning the USAC-sanctioned feature.

Pit gates for the July 3 event are scheduled to open at 9 a.m., with grandstands at 1:30 p.m., practice at 2 p.m., ARCA General Tire Pole Qualifying at 5 p.m., the sprint car feature at 6 p.m. and the ARCA race at 8 p.m.

The event will be promoted by Track Enterprises.
