Hoosier Superspeedway Challenge Hits Halfway; ARCA Drivers on Track at Michigan at 4:05 ET

[media-credit name=”ARCA Racing Network” align=”alignright” width=”175″][/media-credit](BROOKLYN, Mich. – June 14, 2012) – Like the Bill France Four Crown, a season-within-a-season championship decided on a select number of race tracks, the Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge Award stands as another prize for ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards drivers and teams.

This week, the pursuit of the Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge Award reaches its halfway point in the RainEater Wiper Blades 200 at Michigan International Speedway.

The Hoosier Tire Superspeedway Challenge Award is given to the owner of the ARCA Racing Series team scoring the most race points – not counting qualifying or lap bonuses – in the seven races at Daytona International Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway, Pocono Raceway (two), Michigan International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, and Kansas Speedway.
