Toledo, Ohio: June 26, 2018: One of the biggest nights of racing is on the schedule for this Friday’s Cometic Gasket 200 presented by PNC Bank at Toledo Speedway. A pair of 100 lap Late Model races will highlight the night, part of the Miller Lite 250 fueled by Marco’s Pizza Night at the ½ mile paved oval.
The event was rained out back on April 14, as track officials rescheduled the 100 lap event for the ARCA/CRA Super Series presented by Jeg’s stock-bodied Late Models for this Friday night, June 29. The ARCA Gold Cup Late Models/Main Event Series Late Models will also stage their own 100 lap contest.
Fans can save $5 on advance sale tickets ($20) if purchased prior to 5 p.m. Thursday, June 28. Tickets are available by calling Toledo Speedway at (419) 727-1100. Children 6-12 are just $3 each and under 6 are free.
With the forecast for very warm temperatures Friday, a features-only format will be in effect. The night kicks off with the ARCA/CRA Late Model race. As the ARCA/CRA pit crews trade spots with the ARCA Gold Cup/Main Event crews on pit road, the ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8’s will battle in a 20 lap race on the Figure 8 course. The ARCA Gold Cup/Main Event Late Model 100 will follow, and the night will be capped off with the ARCA Aramark Late Model Sportsman 50 lap race, which is one of the R & M Recycling Silver Cup Series events.
Gold Cup Series sponsors include Moran Chevrolet, Dani’s Transport, Royal Truck and Trailer Sales, Diamond Racing Products, DTS Drive Train Specialists, Francis Engineering and HABCO Tool and Development.
Spectator gates will open and practice begins at 3:30, qualifying is scheduled for 6 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m. A Racer’s Reunion will also take place.
