August 13-14, 2021


The weekend will feature three must-see races for open-wheel fans at Lucas Oil Raceway held in conjunction with the Brickyard 400 weekend. Friday night will kick off with Sprint Cars chasing a $10,000 to-win purse followed by Midgets competing for a $10,000 to-win purse and USAC Silver Crown Cars chasing a $12,000 to-win purse on Saturday. Just down the road at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, a new NTT INDYCAR SERIES race will also be held on Saturday before the NASCAR Cup Series takes the road course for the first time over on Sunday.

We are thrilled to have the addition of the Fatheadz Eyewear $100K Challenge to the Hoosier Classic weekend. The addition of these prizes instantly elevates what was going to be the biggest payday in grassroots pavement open-wheel racing to now another stratosphere with a potential winner taking home a total of $132,000 for winning three big races over the course of two days.  With the support of Fatheadz Eyewear in not only the prize, but also helping build the Hoosier Classic into a tent-pole event for fans, drivers and teams, we are beyond excited for the debut of this event.
