Multi-time Vores Compact Touring Series champion Gary Eaton Jr. jumps into a Modified for Sunday’s race. Austin Eaton joins him as well, having won his first Modified race at Shadybowl last season.
Former Midwest Modifieds Tour champion Bob Sibila has filed his entry. Fort Wayne, IN’s Robbie Drummond is the only driver from outside the state of Ohio entered.

Modifieds have played a part of Cabin Fever since the event was first moved to Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park in 2013. Scott Coe, Derrick Griffin, Kyle Purvis and Blake Rowe won Cabin Fever Modified races at IRP, then-sanctioned by the Midwest Modifieds Tour.
Cabin Fever was moved to Shadybowl Speedway for the first time last season, with the Modified race being sanctioned by the track. Jerry Stapleton took the win in 2022.
Saturday, April 1 will serve as an open practice day for all teams, with rotating practice scheduled from 2:00-6:00. Pit gates open at 11:00am Saturday.
Fans who wish to attend the Cabin Fever 75 from Shadybowl Speedway can get tickets at the gate on Sunday, April 2nd. Grandstands open at Noon ET with racing beginning at 2:00 PM ET. Racing alongside the Wooten Automotive & Towing Modifieds are the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman, Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks, and Vores Compact Touring Series.
