METRO ROUNDUP: Doubleheader racing at Action Track this weekend

TERRE HAUTE — Racing is slated in the Wabash Valley this weekend, including a U.S. Auto Club sprint-car race at the Terre Haute Action Track.

The Hurtubise/Hulman Classic will be run Saturday at the Action Track. Another sprint-car race is scheduled for today in Iowa.

Dave Darland has assumed first place in the sprint point totals and takes a 31-point lead over Bryan Clauson into the weekend action. Chase Stockon is fourth in the totals.

The Ted Horn 100 for USAC Silver Crown cars is Sunday night at the DuQuoin State Fair in Illinois. Tracy Hines has a nine-point lead over Jerry Coons Jr. going into the next-to-last race.

Regular racing is scheduled at Bloomington Speedway tonight and at Tri-State Speedway and Lincoln Park Speedway, where King of the Non-Wing Sprint racing tops the card.


• ISU opens its season this weekend — After weeks of drills and practice inside the Indiana State Arena, the ISU Sycamores will kick off their season this weekend when they compete in the Southern Illinois Edwardsville Cougar Classic in Edwardsville, Ill.

Indiana State will go up against the host SIUE Cougars at 7:30 p.m. today and conclude play in the three-team tournament at noon Saturday by meeting the Akron Zips. It will be a short turnaround for the Sycamores as they will be back on the road next Tuesday to play a 6 p.m. match at Chicago State.

“The entire coaching staff is looking forward to watching the team in action Friday against SIUE,” sixth-year ISU coach Traci Dahl said. “We are more athletic than ever and the team has been working real hard in practice fine-tuning each portion of their game. It will be nice to finally see everything we have been working on come together Friday.”

The 2013 edition of the Sycamores is hoping to return to the level of success earned by the 2011 team after an injury-plagued 2012 kept Indiana State from making its second straight trip to the Missouri Valley Conference tournament.

One bright spot from the 2012 season was that several freshman gained valuable court time and experience, which should provide dividends this year. In addition, the Sycamores will regain the services of senior Morgan Dall, one of the top hitters in the MVC who missed the 2012 season with an injury.


n New radio station added — Sports radio fans in the Terre Haute area can now hear ESPN Radio and local high school sports on WFNF 1130 AM and 99.5 FM.

Emmis Communications announced Thursday the return of ESPN to the FM dial with the successful build-out of an FM translator in downtown Terre Haute.

Programming on the new FM 99.5 will include ESPN’s “Mike and Mike,” “In The Herd with Colin Cowherd,” “SVP and Rusillo,” along with “Coach and Company.” Along with ESPN programming. the new FM 99.5 will carry Northview, Terre Haute North, Terre Haute South and West Vigo football and basketball broadcasts, high school and college coaches shows, Cincinnati Reds baseball, the 2014 Wabash Valley Football Coaches Association All-Star Game, the 2014 American Legion Great Lakes National Regional and a local sports show to be announced soon.

“It’s great to have ESPN back on the FM dial.” The Fan sports director Vaso Michels said. “It seemed like every time I went to a sporting event, someone stopped me and asked when ESPN would be back on an FM station. Now that it is back, I think a lot of people are going to be pleased and it will open up a lot of opportunities for us as a station.”

The first live broadcast will be today when Terre Haute North hosts Terre Haute South for the Forrest Sherer Victory Bell game at Carl S. Riddle Stadium. The Fan’s pregame coverage kicks off at 6:45 p.m. The game can be heard on FM 99.5, AM 1130, online at and on the Tunein app.

  • Andy Amey: Just a small trip to talk about this time

    To paraphrase Carl Spackler, the heavy stuff’s not going to come for quite awhile. So while it’s true that I’m back from a week’s vacation, it’s not time — yet — for the big vacation column. Trips to Noblesville, Brunswick and Reelsville, while providing some nice family time, don’t really have the cachet to fill newspaper space.
