Bettenhausen 100 Start Time Moved Up One Hour

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Despite the threat of inclement weather, event officials remain committed to the much-anticipated return of the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series to the Illinois State Fairgrounds on Sunday.

A large field is expected to feature more than 30 Silver Crown drivers taking the green flag.

Tickets are still available to attend the event, which will have an updated feature start time of 2 p.m. CT.

USAC and Track Enterprises officials are working diligently to make sure the championship race goes off as planned. With a chance of rain entering the forecast late in the afternoon, race organizers elected to move the green flag on the Bettenhausen 100 presented by Fatheadz Eyewear to 2 p.m. CT to beat any possible weather that may arrive.

“With no chance of rain during the early hours of the day, we want to do everything possible to race this important event at the mile. There was a little flexibility in the schedule, and we will utilize that to get this race in,” said Bob Sargent, the longtime promoter of the race.

The event marks the return of USAC to the Springfield Mile for the first time since 2018. Action in 2019 was canceled due to wet weather.

Grandstand tickets for the event are still available online and will also be available at the gate on race day. Those who purchased tickets online will save a few bucks as well as a couple minutes at the gate on race day.

Despite the earlier feature time, most other detailed schedule times remain the same. Pits will open at 8 a.m., with grandstands following at 10 a.m. and hot laps rolling off at noon.

Qualifying will follow hot laps, with the feature scheduled to take the green at 2 p.m. instead of the originally scheduled time of 3 p.m.
