RED CLAY SUPER NATIONALS ON OCTOBER 13TH AND 14TH TO SHOWCASE THE BEST
SUPPORT CLASS RACERS IN THE COUNTRY AT SKYLINE SPEEDWAY
The rolling hills of Southeastern Ohio will roar to life in the Mid-October
Support Class Spectacular, The RED CLAY SUPER NATIONALS at Skyline Speedway.
The best Steel Block Late Models, Modifieds, Pure Stocks and 4-cyl Mini
Stocks will tackle the Stewart, Ohio Bull Ring in one of the biggest paydays
ever for support division racers on October 13th and 14th.
The Steel Block Late Models will shoot it out in the $3,000 to win, $300 to
start, 50 lap, A-main. The Modifieds will test their skill and machinery in
the 50 lap, $3,000 to win 300 to start feature. Street Stocks will shoot

Special guest Mr. Earl Baltes of the famed Eldora Speedway will sweeten the
pot for the Steel Block Late Models by donating $100 for the driver who
posts the fastest time in qualifications. Earl Baltes will present trophies
to winners in the Steel Block Late Models, Modifieds, Street Stocks,
Pure/Pro/Bomber Stocks and the 4-Cyl Mini Stocks.
Additionally, the Hoosier Tire Company has provided sponsorship. Hoosier
Racing Tire will give a substantial BONUS to the feature winner in the
Modified and Street Stock classes. Modified and Street Stock drivers must
be on approved AMRA/UMP Hoosier Tires to be eligible for the BONUS.
In 1995 a similar event was conducted with the payoff and total purse
considerably less than the Red Clay Super Nationals purse. Over 100 cars
were in attendance in each racing division. Our pit area has been expanded
to accommodate 400 haulers. The best in each division will be at Skyline
Speedway to lay claim to the Red Clay Super National Titles.
