The buses will go round and round during
an unusual race at the Kansas State Fair racetrack.
Eight colorful buses will race on Oct. 16 as part of the
O'Reilly/National Championship Racing Association event in
The buses currently are parked on a Hutchinson street and are
garnering lots of attention. One is painted in rainbow colors and
covered in flowers. Other entrants include a rock star bus, a baby
blue bus and a camouflage bus.
Speedway 81 announcer Warren Hardy says only racecar drivers
will be allowed to drive the buses during the race. He says 37
drivers have applied for the race.
The Hutchinson News reports that the event will also include
sprint cars and regular modified car races.
