Two-time NASCAR champ Stewart headlines a list of drivers including NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Juan Pablo Montoya and Mark Martin, and NHRA drivers Cruz Pedregon and Ron Capps, who competed at the Stewart-owned half-mile track located in Western Ohio in 2,300-pound dirt late model stock cars capable of putting out more than 800 horsepower. The full lineup included an impressive five Cup champions, three Daytona 500 winners and 24 major racing championship winners.
"This is a cool opportunity to give race fans another chance to see some of their favorite drivers having a lot of fun together," said SPEED President Hunter Nickell. "Tony has built this into quite a special event and SPEED is happy to be able to deliver it to the fans."
SPEED also will support the event’s cause, donating advertising time to the Victory Junction Gang Camp, a year-round camp founded by NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and his wife, Pattie, in memory of their son, Adam. The camp serves children, ages 7 to 15, with a variety of health issues.
