$48,800 Given to Finalists of Lucas Oil Super 64 at Summit Motorsports Park
The running of the Lucas Oil Super 64 presented by American Race Cars on the eve of the Kelly Night Under Fire has become an annual tradition at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
The runoff-style race features Summit Motorsports Park Edelbrock Super Series Finish Line Club members who are in the top sixteen in points in Edelbrock Super Pro, Edelbrock Pro, Edelbrock Sportsman Delivered on Time by TFC Transportation and Wiseco/Cycle Tech Super Bike as of Aug. 1.

Racers were ready on the tree, and racing was tight on the top end of the track. As family, friends and fans cheered them on, Rick Schneider secured the win with a 4.76 on a 4.76 dial over Wayne Baker, who had trouble and couldn’t complete his pass in Edelbrock Super Pro, while Brian Cireddu collected the win with a 6.35 on a 6.34 dial over Chad Sweitzer, who broke out with a 6.35 on a 6.36 dial in Edelbrock Pro.
