CRA announces 2014 Super Series schedule

Red Bud 400 set for June 14

(Continued)

The Super Series will also be a part of the All American 400 at the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville (TN) on Nov. 1 with the Southern Super Series.

The JEGS pro late models will be competing in a minimum of six races in the Hoosier State.

They will return to Anderson Speedway for a 100-lap event on Saturday, July 26, the night before the Brickyard 400. Stops are set for June 21 at Salem Speedway, July 5 at Angola Motorsports Speedway, Winchester Speedway on Aug. 31 and Oct. 10 and a visit to Lucas Oil Speedway on Sept. 28.

The JEGS series will be competing at the famed Milwaukee Mile on 8 along with the ARCA Midwest Tour.

Schedules for the CRA Sportsman and Street Stocks will be announced at a later date.

There are several races on the two schedules announced by CRA officials that I will be circling on my calendar for 2014.

In other racing news: Ryan Briscoe landed the coveted ride with Ganassi/Target Racing with the IZOD IndyCar Series. Briscoe replaces the retiring Dario Franchitti on the three-car team with drivers Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan. Kanaan will be driving the Target sponsored #10 that Franchitti drove in recent years.

Briscoe previously drove for Penske Racing before losing that ride for the 2013 season.

I’m still awaiting an announcement concerning Simona deSilvestro’s plans for the 2014 season. She drove for KV Racing this year, but has not indicated her plans for next season. I was hoping she would have landed the Ganassi ride.

Congratulations to IndyCar team owner Sarah Fisher who announced this week she is expecting the birth of her second child next spring.
