TIM ICE IS GRAND MARSHAL FOR GLASS CITY 200; NEEDLES FILES ENTRY

Toledo, Ohio—September 7, 2021:  2000 Glass City 200 winner Tim Ice will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 33rd running of the Central Transport Glass City 200 at Toledo Speedway.  Ice was also the 1990 and 1991 champion of the former “Iceman” Late Model Series which was based at Toledo under then-promoter Sonny Adams.  Defending Outlaw Super Late Model Glass City winner Steve Needles has filed his entry for the 100-lap contest for that class.

The ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by Jeg’s stock-bodied Late Models will compete in the other 100 lap event to make up the 200 laps of Late Model action. The prestigious race is set for Saturday, September 18 at the fast ½ mile paved oval. The Hampton Inn and Courtyard by Marriott, and DTS Drive Train Specialists, will be the presenting sponsors for the track’s signature event.

CRA’s Junior Late Models, featuring tomorrow’s rising stars in full-bodied cars, will also be in action, with the Toledo event serving as their Season Championship.

Ice was a constant threat to win in his #65 machine.  Tim racked up 10 wins at Toledo in Late Model competition and numerous feature wins across the state of Ohio.  His Glass City 200 win came in the year 2000, when leader Tim Felver and his teammate, Jr. Hanley, tangled and spun, giving the lead to Ice, who zipped to the victory.  Ice has not stopped racing, but has not seen much time behind the wheel in the past several seasons.  Tim will be honored in pre-race ceremonies for his Glass City 200 lap race win September 18 at the Glass City oval.

Recent pre-entries for the Outlaw Super Late Model portion include that of 2020 Glass City winner Steve Needles, 2008 and 2010 Glass City winner Harold Fair Jr. and local favorite Dennis Rederstorf.

2008 Outlaw Glass City 200 winner Brian Campbell is the latest entry on the ARCA/CRA Super Series portion of the event.  Indiana natives Rick Turner and Tanner Jack, Ohio drivers Jack Smith and Bill Burda, along with Michigan drivers Evan Varney, Blake Rowe and Andrew Scheid have also added their entries for the Glass City event.
