New Circle City Raceway Honors John Andretti with Race4Riley Benefit
Indianapolis will have a dirt track once again, and they are starting their first season in a big way. Circle City Raceway, a new venture at the Marion County Fairgrounds, is a 1/4 mile track and has a 2021 season which includes USAC midgets and sprint races.
Indianapolis last had a dirt track at the site of the old Bush Stadium baseball field in the 1980s.
The big event will be June 9, when they host a benefit race for Race4Riley, the program began by the late John Andretti. The race is part of USAC’s Indiana Midget Week. The program was announced in a release yesterday.
Circle City Raceway will also host USAC Sprints September 17.
It will be nice to have a dirt track in town. I hope to get out to several programs in 2021.
