Wasn't this already a failed attempt at Kemper Arena in Kansas City? By the reports it was an oversized 1/4 (.25) midget track. What's going to be different about this deal.
With your ever present sense of positivity I'm sure you will get an invite...

is there a way to enter this event or is it invite only? I figured something like this would happen in Lucas oil not Bankers life but whatever. Hopefully its open to whoever if not I am sure I can find someone to wheel my car, but I will defiantly be there.

It can not happen in Lucas Oil Stadium because of scheduling it takes 2 days to move in or out all the dirt. And they are limited on space so they control car count by invitation only

I am excited about this as I love DuQuion and have been wanting to see a indoor dirt race in Indy. When my brother called and told me about it I was super excited but when I saw it was an invitational (since we run the midget limited) I'm pretty sure my name is not going to show up on this list. Still hoping to see this be successful and will just have to run DuQuion the next weekend.

I hope it's a big success! I agree needs to be at Lucas Oil maybe if it grows.
