AELMT Hartford a Qualifying Race for Hoosier Autumn Classic

Lake Odessa, MI (Tuesday, September 10, 2019) - Officials with the American Ethanol Late Model Tour have announced that this Saturday’s Fall Special, will have more than just the $4,000 prize on the line. The driver who finds their way to Victory Lane at Hartford Speedway, will have an automatic ticket to the Friday portion of the Hoosier Autumn Classic from Plymouth Speedway at the end of the month. If the winner of the Fall Special at Hartford Speedway races their way into the Hoosier Autumn Classic, the highest finisher at Hartford’s event, who has not qualified into the Plymouth race on Friday, will receive a provisional starting spot.

Saturday, September 14th, Hartford Speedway hosts the American Ethanol Late Model Tour for just the fourth time in Tour history, along with the American Ethanol Modified Tour Presented by Allstar Performance, Stock Cars and Cyber Stocks. Racing begins at 7:00pm.

The highly anticipated two-day-event in Plymouth, Indiana, features a combined $17,000 in winnings between the three shows on September 27th and 28th. Friday will feature a pair of $2,500 to win, 25-lap qualifier races that headline the night. Qualifying Race Number One will be lined straight-up from the heat race finish. After those 25 laps are complete, lead lap cars will be completely inverted and that will be the starting line-up for Qualifying Race Number Two. The top four point earners from the Qualifier Races will be locked in to the Hoosier Autumn Classic on Saturday.

The final night of the weekend will feature the second largest payout of the 2019 season, when $12,000 will be on the line during a 50-lap main event. On top of the large payout, the action on the track will be exciting for another reason as well - the Hoosier Autumn Classic marks the final race of the 2019 season before the Championships from I-96 Speedway on Saturday, October 12th.

The driver who picks up the win this Saturday, can breathe a little easier heading into Plymouth, knowing they banked a provisional starting spot if needed. Over the past few weeks, AELMT regulars have found themselves trying to race their way into events through the Last Chance Qualifier, meaning an extra provisional could be a season saver.
