The Lincoln Tech Indianapolis Speedrome gears up for its first major of the season this Saturday May 7th, the 4th Annual “Big Ed” Bishop Memorial 75-Lap Figure 8. The World Figure 8 Cars look to continue their hot start to 2016 in this extra-distance crossover classic. The night’s events also include competition for the USA Insulation Super Stocks, Pro Compacts, Factory Front Wheel Drives, and the Circle City Pyrotechnics Junior Faskarts. In addition, the evening hosts the yearly Big Wheel races for children 5 and under.
Opening night Figure 8 winner Austin Tunny is the defending champion of the “Big Ed” Bishop Memorial 75. The race salutes the 2010 Speedrome Hall of Fame inductee who was heralded as a strong track supporter that through the years piled up the season championships and major event victories with his vastly talented stable of drivers. There will be a star-studded roster on hand Saturday aiming to add this jewel to their racing resume. Previous event victors include Casey White (2013) and Mark Tunny (2014).
Tickets are just $12 with those ages 6-11 just $6 and 5 and under are free. Racing starts at 7:00PM.
