BROWNSBURG, Ind. – The All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season may be all but complete, but the series still has one more weekend of action ahead.
Series competitors will head to Fremont (Ohio) Speedway for the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic this Friday and Saturday. A high dollar staple on the Fremont calendar, the two-day Jim and Joanne Ford Classic will award a total winner’s share equaling $15,000 headlined with a $10,000 finale on Saturday, Oct. 9. The weekend will open with a $5,000-to-win preliminary on Friday, Oct. 8.
Fremont is certainly no stranger to the All Star Circuit of Champions schedule, most recently hosting the series during Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Saturday, June 12. A sure-fire contender for race of the year, the Ohio Sprint Speedweek visit concluded with a last lap, last corner pass consisting of Cole Duncan sneaking by Danny Dietrich for a $6,000 payday. The victory also secured Duncan the evening’s Hard Charger Award, as the Lockbourne, Ohio-native commenced his charge to the lead from row four.
Forced to face-off against a stout contingent of northwest Ohio regulars, as well as an expected turnout of regional invaders, the All Star Circuit of Champions will certainly have their hands full, led by current Series point leader and leading winner, Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney. In fact, Courtney’s title is all but secured, as just firing for hot laps on Friday will secure his 2021 All Star Circuit of Champions championship. Impressive enough, Courtney’s title will be accomplished in his first-ever try, locking down Rookie of the Year honors in the process.
Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason will enter Fremont’s doubleheader second in the All Star driver championship chase, followed by Vermeer Motorsports’ Hunter Schuerenberg, Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise, and Bill Balog.
Cap Henry is currently sixth in the All Star driver standings, followed by Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck, Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt, former full-timer, Ian Madsen, and Nashville’s Paul McMahan.
