The Midwest Musclecar Challenge is quickly becoming the most popular Pro-Touring event in the Midwest. What is this you might ask, it is a rare opportunity to see the industries top Pro-Touring built cars battle it out.  This event is open to any domestic model year vehicles. The event will be held May 29th & 30th 2015. The event will be held at Putnam Raceway Park on Friday May 29th and at Terre Haute Airport on Saturday May 30th.  

 

 

This is a three segment event which includes the Hot Lap Challenge, autocross challenge and a cruise. The focus of this event is education.  Participants will have access to instructors, course tips and ride along opportunities.  We will help educate the participants about safety, your vehicle, handling tips and promise you will walk away from this event with much value for this growing industry.  We will have timed sessions and a competition segment, but we want participants to get the most out of the event, have fun and be able to handle their vehicle in a race environment, understand safety and become a better driver on a course.   We do not operate this event for profit; this is an event that gives back. Proceeds go to the Cancer Research Center of Lawrence Country.  Our focus is to provide a safe and educational event for the Pro-Touring car enthusiast.    We will have two celebrities, Al Unser Jr, multiple Indy League winner including a two time Indianapolis 500 winner & Robbie Unser former Indy Racing League driver and eight time winner of the Pikes Peaks International Hillclimb.  Al & Robbie will be there to support the event, offering participants driving tips & guidance along with offering participants photo opportunities & autographs.

The high horsepower fun will begin on Friday with Forgeline Hot Lap Challenge. Putnam Road course is one of the best in the country; the 1.78 mile road course has 10 tire screeching turns laid out on beautiful landscape in Putnam, Indiana.  The track is located 35 miles west of Indianapolis, Indiana.  A full day on the road course assures everyone plenty of track time and there will be instruction available for novices or those that want to improve their existing skills.  10/10ths Motorsport will be providing instructors for the Putnam Park Road course.
