USAC Midgets visiting Kil-Kare on Friday
XENIA — With the many early season rain-outs, Kil-Kare Speedway has changed the program that was originally scheduled as Open Wheel Friday for this week.
The weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series late models, modifieds, sport stocks, and compacts will be running their regular program in an attempt to catch up on the early season lost events.
The open-wheel fans have not been forgotten as the USAC (United States Auto Club) Ford Focus and Focus Young Guns will be added to the program making for a full night of activity.
When the Ford Focus Midgets appeared last year, Scotty Hunter set a new track record of 13.458 seconds. However when the checker fell on the feature, it was the grandson of the well-known Ralph Ligouri, Joe Ligouri taking the win with Hunter fourth.
Nineteen midgets were on hand last year with a similar number expected Friday night.
Gates open at 6 p.m. and racing at 8 p.m.
