146 Laps, 100 Miles: The Hoosier Hundred Reignites

—  It’ll be a new look, a new place and a whole new Hoosier Hundred experience when the USAC Silver Crown National Championship arrives at the .686-mile paved oval of Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park on Friday night, May 26. The 146-lap, 100-mile event is a rarity of a race of this distance for the series. In fact, only 11 events in the 53-year history of USAC Silver Crown racing have feature a distance of more than 100 laps. Four such events have been held at IRP over the years, all between 1985 and 1988. The $25,000 winner’s share for Friday’s Hoosier Hundred is among the most lucrative in series history. The largest car count for a pavement USAC Silver Crown event in the past 18 years will arrive at IRP this Friday night. That night, 46 cars competed in the event which was won by Bobby East.
