Kansas Speedway Announces Start Time for IndyCar Series
The seventh IndyCar Series race at Kansas Speedway will not only have a new April date, but will have a new later start time as well.
Traditionally at Kansas Speedway, the IndyCar Series race has started mid-day. In 2007, the green flag will drop at approximately 3:30 p.m. central on ESPN2 on April 29.
"Our fans are extremely enthusiastic about the IndyCar Series race, and the new later start time and new date will allow them to enjoy the race even more than in past years," said Kansas Speedway President Jeff Boerger. "The later start time will also allow more fans across the country to see the exciting racing that we have at Kansas Speedway.
"Over the last three years, the IndyCar Series race at Kansas Speedway has been decided by less than a tenth of a second and I don't expect this year to be any different."
"We are pleased to offer race fans a later start time for our event at Kansas Speedway," said John Lewis, vice-president of league development for the Indy Racing League, the sanctioning body of the IndyCar Series. "Not only does the April date allow for more comfortable weather for our fans, now the later start time will let everyone enjoy a full day at the track."
Kansas Speedway's seventh season of racing kicks off the weekend of April 27 with the IndyCar Series Kansas Lottery 300, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 and the ARCA Re/Max Series Kansas Lottery $150 Grand.
