THE ACTION AT TERRE HAUTE IS IN SOLID HANDS FOR YEARS TO COME!
The legendary Terre Haute Action Track will be under solid care for multiple years with Illinois based race organizers Bob Sargent and the O’Connor Family, whose promotions have involved some of auto racing’s most storied venues in recent years. These two veteran promoters are once again teamed up to preserve the heritage and future of one of the sport’s most revered race tracks. The track will be under the promotional guidance of Bob Sargent and Reece O’Connor who have teamed together to create Terre Haute Motorsports. Many special events are planned and fans are encouraged to watch the media and coming websites for more information.
The Wabash Valley Fair Association and Terre Haute Motorsports have entered into a multi-year agreement for the operation of the Terre Haute Action Track racing activities. “We are pleased to have Bob and Reece as the promoters for racing at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds. The Terre Haute Action Track is going to be the place to come for great racing for years to come with them as our promoters. We welcome them and look forward to a great relationship.” Said Jennifer Cook, Wabash Valley Fair Association President.
Sargent and Track Enterprises, whose promotions have included numerous USAC spectaculars, are involved at Illinois tracks like the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, the DuQuoin, Illinois State Fairgrounds and Macon Speedway, while the O’Connor Family operates the legendary Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway. The promotional duo has exhibited track preparation skills which will ensure continued spectacular racing at the half-mile dirt Terre Haute oval.
The legendary speedway will feature the return of traditional events such as USAC’s “Don Smith Classic” Sprint Week race, “Tony Hulman Classic” sprint race, “Jim Hurtubise Classic” sprint race and “Sumar Classic” Silver Crown Championship race. The MSCS and KISS Sprint Cars will make a return appearance to the schedule this year as well. The track will host multiple NASCAR stars behind the wheels of their UMP modifieds on NASCAR night in June. The UMP Summernationals Tour will stop in July featuring the arrival of the ground pounding Late Models to the speedway after a lengthy hiatus.
