SpeedFest’s two nights of racing will feature drivers from racing series who not normally race in the respective series’. Matt Crafton, NASCAR Camping World Truck driver, will be competing in the ARCA race. He has raced at Lucas Oil Raceway numerous times in his career and should be some tough competition for ARCA points leader, Brennan Poole, who is a rookie to the tricky oval. Kenzie Ruston, the first female in the history of CRA series to win a race, will be racing in two events at Lucas Oil Raceway where she achieved that victory. Tracey Hines will compete for a second win at Lucas Oil Raceway this season in the USAC Midget race after winning the Night Before the 500. USAC Silver Crown points leader Kody Swanson will look to drive to victory lane and keep hometown driver Bobby East behind him in the championship battle.
