FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The “Rumble in Fort Wayne” will expand to include two divisions utilizing 600cc-powered dirt cars, event organizer Tony Barhorst has announced.

Unrestricted and restricted non-winged 600cc modified midgets will join midgets, winged outlaw modified midgets, karts and quarter midgets in the 16th annual indoor event on Friday, Dec. 27 and Saturday, Dec. 28 at the Memorial Coliseum Expo Center. An optional practice session is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 26 on the 1/6-mile indoor concrete track.

Rules and entry forms are available at (click on Driver Info).

“After much discussion on our 600 classes, I have decided to add both unrestricted and restricted dirt-only 600 divisions,” Barhorst said. “When I say dirt only, I certainly mean it as these cars will be teched closely to Indiana outdoor dirt 600 rules. We will be adding rules soon to assure that these are not specialty cars.”

DSC_0136FORT WAYNE, Ind. Billy Wease couldn’t believe it. Neither could Tony Stewarts legion of fans. In a race in which the invincible Stewart dropped out before halfway with a blown engine, Wease charged from the final starting position to capture Fridays 50-lap midget feature on the opening night of the 15th annual Rumble in Fort Wayne.  I kept on diggin, man, an almost delirious Wease said from the makeshift victory lane at the Memorial Coliseum Expo Center, his face splitting into a grin. ll tell you what, I was pretty upset I had to start last.

I stayed in it and let everyone else put themselves out.  In coming from the 14th starting spot in the 14-car field and from the rear again after being caught up in a three-car tangle on lap 26 Wease, 26, notched his fourth career victory at the 1/6-mile track and fifth overall indoors.
