SALEM, Ind. – Officials from Champion Racing Ass’n Powered by JEGS (CRA) and Kil-Kare Speedway announced today that the ARCA CRA/Super Series Powered by JEGS will make their first ever appearance at Ohio’s Kil-Kare Speedway on Sept. 15.
This event replaces the recently removed Baer Field Speedway event.
“We are really excited about the opportunity to be at Kil-Kare,” noted CRA Series Director and partner Glenn Luckett. “They have a lot of great fans and racers in the area, and we are looking forward to bringing CRA racing into their arena.”
The unique three-eighths-mile facility was purchased last year by area businessman David Coterel, who also owns the Harley Davidson dealership in Xenia, Ohio.
“David and his staff have made their mark on the facility early on,” CRA Managing Partner R. J. Scott explained, “Bringing in CRA is another step towards showing the Kil-Kare fans that the new management group is committed to putting the best product out there for their fans. We are expecting a great show that will hopefully lead to more CRA events in the future.”
“It takes a lot of people working together to pull something like this off,” said Kil-Kare Speedway’s Kyle Willetts. “We have talked about trying to do something like this for a while and the stars just seemed to line up. We appreciate the opportunity to work with everyone at CRA and would especially like to thank the folks at Oakley Blacktop for being a big part of helping to make this happen.” The event will be titled the Buckminn’s D&D Harley Davidson/Oakley Blacktop 125.
