Kil-Kare adds ARCA/CRA series event

For the first time in track history, the roar of the Champion Racing Association will come to Kil-Kare Speedway on Sept. 15. The ARCA/CRA stock car series visit the Greene County track for a rare Sunday race called the Buckminn’s D&D Harley Davidson/Oakley Blacktop 125.

The event was scheduled for Baer Field Speedway, but shifts to Kil-Kare instead. Baer recently decided to move the race from its half-mile track to its smaller track. That prompted discussions that led to the cancellation at Baer. Kil-Kare is a challenging 3/8th modified-D track

“We are really excited about the opportunity to be at Kil-Kare,” CRA series director and partner Glenn Luckett said. “They have a lot of great fans and racers in the area, and we are looking forward to bringing CRA racing into their arena.”

West Virginia’s Travis Braden, who drives for Miamisburg’s Gary Estes, leads the ARCA/CRA points heading into this weekend’s World Stock Car Festival at Winchester Speedway.

“(Kil-Kare owner) David (Coterel) and his staff have made their mark on the facility early on,” CRA Managing Partner R. J. Scott said, “and bringing in CRA is another step towards showing the Kil-Kare fans that the new management group is committed to putting the best product out there for their fans. We are expecting a great show that will hopefully lead to more CRA events in the future.”

Kil-Kare will run its sport stock and compact classes — both on the big track — as an undercard to the ARCA/CRA Series. Additional details will be released soon.
