The USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series, or so they tell us, is expecting a huge turnout of sprints and fans. With the winner taking home a $10,000 check, we bet they’re right. Many will be camping out around Kokomo this weekend to not miss a race.
You’ve already missed a day of the action as races started Thursday, but there’ll be much more racing today and Saturday. For the lowdown and ticket prices, visit www.kokomospeedway.net.
Music in the park
Kokomo’s Hoosier String Players will perform a free concert of old-time and gospel music at 3 p.m. Saturday at Highland Park Band Stand.
The group has been performing together since 2000 at county fairs, banquets, church events, class reunions and farmers’ markets.
You’ll want to bring a lawn chair.
