SALEM, Ind. – The list of entries to date for the upcoming Stoops Freightliner Redbud 300 at Anderson Speedway on July 20 contains some very impressive names as this event continues to grow into one of the premier template late model events in the country, sanctioned by the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS.
The list to date is topped by 2012 event winner Ross Kenseth, son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Matt Kenseth, as he looks to defend his exciting win from last season. Kenseth also won the Winchester 400 and All American 400 last year.
Kenseth will have plenty of competition, with just the racers that have entered to date starting with three time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion Johnny VanDoorn, a former winner of this event when it was called the Budweiser 250. VanDoorn has gone to victory lane twice already this year in series events, first at Toledo Speedway on April 20, then he got the win in the June 15 Battle at Berlin 251, winning the first event of the JEGS/CRA $100,000 Super Late Model Triple Crown, now he looks to continue his winning streak in the Stoops Freightliner Redbud 300, the second event in the Triple Crown.
The Winchester 400 on Oct. 13 at Winchester Speedway will be the third event of the Triple Crown, if a single driver can win all three events, they will receive a $100,000 cash bonus from JEGS. If there is a driver that just wins two of the events, they will receive a $10,000 cash bonus. If there is a different winner for all three events, the driver with the best overall finishes between the three events will receive a $5,000 bonus.
