Toledo, Ohio: 2007 Glass City winner Brian Campbell and 2-time race winner Harold Fair Jr. are now entered for the Outlaw Late Model portion of the 30th Anniversary of the Central Transport Glass City 200 presented by the Holiday Inn Express, Hampton Inn and Courtyard by Marriott at Toledo Speedway Saturday, September 15.
The total purse for the event exceeds $60,000. The outlaw-bodied Late Models and the ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by Jeg’s stock-bodied Late Models will each battle in 100 lap main events on the fast ½ mile paved oval. Each race pays $5000 to the winner, with plenty of bonus awards posted for each type of Late Model.
The already-strong entry list for this race has been further strengthened by several unexpected entries, and Campbell’s ride in an outlaw car is just one of them. Brian won the race in 2007 (200 laps) and will be making a very rare appearance in this type of Late Model for the Toledo event, driving Lee VanDyk’s #24 from the Grand Rapids, MI area, joining Johnny VanDoorn as surprise competitors in the Outlaw Late Model 100 lap contest. This duo, and Nick Grodi, will run in both 100 lap features Saturday.
2-time Glass City winner Harold Fair Jr. (2008, 2010) will also pull double duty with the addition of his entry in the Outlaw class. Fair will be at the wheel of the Bob Fox-owned #56 for Saturday’s race.
In other news, Canadian youngster Cayden Lapcevich of Grimsby, Ontario Canada will now be the driver of the Blount Motorsports #16. Cayden ran very strong at Jukasa, Ontario Speedway a few weeks ago in the same car, and will now make his first start in an outlaw car at Toledo.
Local driver Hayden Sprague of Livonia, MI has added his name to the ARCA/CRA Super Series entry list, and tested today at Toledo, along with California teenager Tyler Ankrum in a stock-bodied ARCA/CRA car. Jack Varney Jr. and Fair Jr. also took laps in the outlaw cars on a brilliant, sunshine-filled day.
