Plainfield, IN - Chad Boespflug is set to make his 6th Kokomo Smackdown appearance, the first in the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser 69. In the past five years Boespflug has made the Kokomo Smackdown Finale AMain each year finishing a career best 2nd place in 2016. Boespflug and the HAR Team will kick the action packed week off Wednesday August 23rd during the #GYATK Fan Appreciation Night. For those of you who don't know GYATK stands for "Get Your Ass to Kokomo", a household slogan in the Indiana racing scene. Kokomo Speedway promoters the O'Connor Family want everyone to do just that GYATK Wednesday for the FREE Admission Fan Appreciation night of racing to let Fan's get a taste of what is to come in the following three nights of USAC competition.
All four nights will be compiled of the best non wing sprint car drivers in Indiana. Boespflug will use Wednesday as a test and tune session to make sure the HAR Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser 69 Maxim is dialed in right out of the gate Thursday. Kokomo Smackdown format is a little different from that of a standard USAC National event. Points from all events Thursday and Friday will be tallied and lock the top 8 into the King of the Hill Challenge Saturday, all others will have to race their way into the AMain through qualifying events. The goal is to make the King of the Hill match races Saturday for a shot to race your way to the best of the top 8 starting positions before being eliminated.
Be sure to stop by the Chad Boespflug Merchandise Trailer located across from the main grandstand entrance throughout the week to pick up a Special Edition CB Kokomo Smackdown Shirt. Fans will have a chance to meet and greet Chad during scheduled Autograph Sessions each day. In addition to the autograph sessions the Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser Corn Hole Challenge will be setup for a chance for FANS to Win FREE Mean Green Products.
