The ARCA Midwest Tour presented by Scag Power Equipment will host the Calypso Lemonade Border Wars II welcoming the ARCA/CRA Super Series to Illiana Motor Speedway in Schererville, IN on Sunday & Monday, May 25th & 26th. There are currently over 30 drivers entered for the 150 lap event.
In the first round of the Border Wars, the ARCA Midwest Tour headed to Toledo, OH to battle it out on the ARCA/CRA Super Series turf. Brian Campbell showed the way taking home the victory. ARCA Midwest Touring Star, Nathan Haseleu was the top finishing Tour driver, finishing in 6th.
This weekend, local drivers such as, Paul Shafer Jr., Midwest Touring Star, Boris Jurkovic, Eddie Hoffman, and more will all be looking to claim victory in front of their hometown crowd. ARCA/CRA Super Series driver, Brian Campbell is no stranger to victory lane at the historic track either, his last victory coming in September of 2013.
This will be the fourth time the Midwest Tour will visit the track. Three different drivers found victory lane in the last three events; Jacob Goede, Steve Carlson, and Ross Kenseth. Kenseth will be the only returning driver to have previously won an ARCA Midwest Tour event at the track.
Both the ARCA Midwest Tour and the ARCA/CRA Super Series have some of the most talented drivers in the country. To watch them go head-to-head at a track that many of them have found success at will be an event to remember.
On Saturday from 11:00am-2:00pm at Menards on Hwy 41 in Schererville, IN, fans can sample some great tasting Calypso Lemonade and have a chance to win tickets to Monday’s event. Illiana Speedway Champion, Paul Shafer Jr. will have his car on display and 103.9 X Rock will be hosting a live remote from 11:00am-1:00pm.
Teams will have a chance to prepare for Monday’s event with a full day of practice on Sunday. Practice will begin at 2:00pm and end at 6:00pm.
On race day, qualifying will begin at 12:30pm followed by an on-track autograph session at 1:30pm. Racing begins at 2:30pm!
