Exciting Night of Racing Planned at Plymouth Speedway
June 14, 2013, Anita Soltis, Plymouth Speedway
(Plymouth, IN) A big modified race featuring five NASCAR stars is
taking place on the dirt track at Plymouth Speedway this Saturday,
sponsored by Wings Etc.
NASCAR analyst for the SPEED Channel, Bob Dillner, says it's going
to be quite the show.
"It's going to wild this weekend at Plymouth Speedway," said Dillner.
"Anyone listening to this show here today, I would get out to
Plymouth this weekend because I think you're going to have the best
racing of the weekend with those modifieds on the dirt! I'm
just really excited for everyone at Plymouth to have the success
that they're having now because that's really good for racing in
Ken Schrader, David Reutimann, Justin Allgaier, Kenny Wallace and
David Stremme will be driving in this featured race. Dillner
remarked how Stremme is looking forward to racing at the track that
is near his hometown of South Bend.
"He was talking about how excited he was to go to Plymouth and how
good that track was doing honestly since converting from the
pavement to the dirt."
He adds that it's not uncommon for NASCAR level drivers to continue
to drive in events such as the one scheduled at Plymouth Speedway on
"I think a lot of the guys that are real racers in the NASCAR Sprint
Cup Series - they like to go back to the short tracks whether it's
on dirt or asphalt. It doesn't make a difference. You're
at Plymouth this week, which used to be an asphalt track, now that
it's dirt it's very successful. I think you've got guys like
David Stremme...he's from the area and he likes to go back and give
back to the short track rank at some of the places or areas that he
grew up at."
While the NASCAR drivers will be pitted against the regular season
modified drivers, more divisions of racing will round out an
exciting night of entertainment including Street Stocks, Thunder
Stocks, USAC 600 Sprints, and USAC r600w.
Pits open at 3 p.m., the grandstands open at 4 p.m. and racing
begins at 7 p.m. ET. Ticket and pit pass information are
