Ford Division Triathlon Tops Speedway Action

The Vintage Wrench Ford Division will take center stage this weekend at Anderson Speedway with the running of the second Triathlon.

The competition features three different races with an overall champion crowned at the finish. The drivers will be competing in a traditional oval race, run the oval in the opposite direction and conclude with a Figure-8 event.

LivRite Fitness and the Hope Church are presenting the racing action on Paint the Night Pink Faith and Family night that will include the McGunegill Engine Performance Late Models, Noble Wine & Spirits ThunderCars and the Marcum’s Welding Front Wheel Drive division.

Last year the traditional oval race was won by visiting driver Jamie Harbin, Anderson’s Dakota Brough won the reversed oval feature and Elliott McKinney captured the Figure-8 race.

Randy Hoppes was declared the champion based on his second and seventh place finishes in the oval events and a fourth place showing in the Figure-8 race.

Qualifying beginning at 4:30 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m.

Adults tickets are $13, $5 for children between the ages of 6 and 12 and children under 5 are admitted free.
