Countdown to Newton Park!
Count Down for Hoosier Tire Event - Newton Park (more)
When the USAC .25 Midget Nationals event concluded the entire area had to be cleared. The newly purchased wall was taken apart and packed in the Hoosier Semi.
The rains came just as the Briggs and Stratton Animal Exhibition races were winding down.
The trophy presentaion took place in the Indianpolis Motor Speedway Pavillion
Then it was tear-down time....
The wall was then in transport for the next .25 event at Hoosier's own - Newton Park!
The Hoosier Semi arrives with the track from Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Piece by piece, block by block, fencing
it's all coming together for Newton Park!
Monday.... the track becomes reality
On Tuesday... the track was moved and made a bit bigger! The Sounds guys were the next to get to work. All speakers are now ready to be placed and the PA system is working great! Supplies started to be transported from the Hoosier Offices to Newton Park.
Later in the afternoon, water was added to the wall blocks.
Victory Lane is all painted and decorated ready to celebrate the champions. Of course... it is all decked out in Hoosier Purple!
