FREMONT, Ohio – Some of the
best drivers in the United States have competed on the clay oval of Fremont
Speedway in the historic Sandusky County Fairgrounds. Now add to that list
NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers Tony Stewart and Marcos Ambrose.
Stewart, a NASCAR champion
and owner of the historic Eldora Speedway dirt track in Ohio, will pilot
his own winged sprint car at “The Track That Action Built.” Joining Stewart
will be fellow NASCAR driver Marcos Ambrose and his crew chief, former
champion of the All Star Circuit of Champion Sprint Cars, Frank Kerr. Local
sprint teams will provide the cars for Kerr and Ambrose.
Fremont Speedway Promoter
Rich Farmer said there is a possibility a couple of other NASCAR drivers
may be on hand as well.
“Frank and Marcos came here
last year and raced and had a blast and said they wanted to do it again,”
The exhibition race will
be held Thursday, June 10. Admission is just $2 in the grandstands while
pit passes are $15. The time of the event has yet to be determined…watch
