INDIANAPOLIS – The Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is returning to the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series schedule on Sunday, Aug. 23.

Originally the 2019 edition of the event was to be the last at the Indiana State Fairgrounds as there were plans in place to turn the track into an all-weather surface made of crushed limestone.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic those plans have been put on hold. That opened the door for auto racing to return to the Indy Mile.

Tyler Courtney won the 2019 edition of the Hoosier Hundred, which was at the time billed as the final race for the track.

Tickets will be available online for the Hoosier Hundred beginning at 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Aug. 11 at www.usactickets.com. Capacity is limited to 25 percent for the event. More information and event details will be available soon at www.trackenterprises.com and www.usacracing.com.

The weekend of racing will begin Aug. 21 with the Dave Steele Carb Night Classic at Lucas Oil Raceway in Clermont, Ind., featuring the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series and the Road to Indy presented by Cooper Tires.
