NEORN_SanduskySpeedway_6.15.13_EDITED (44 of 184)

This weekend is complicated by threats of rain, but don’t let that hold you back from heading out to the track!  All Friday night racing was cancelled due to rain and wet conditions.  The weather has also adjusted Sandusky Speedway’s schedule, with the Auto Value Super Sprints cancelling their feature.  Sandusky will continue their show with Mods, Street Stocks, and Hobby Stocks.

Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter accounts for the latest on rain delays and race cancellations Continue reading Racing Around NEO: Monsoon Edition

Racing Around NEO: Sprints Kick Off Speedweek

NEORN_MidvaleSpeedway_6.8.13_EDITED (25 of 230)
There is quite a bit of everything and anything racing this weekend.  Friday night kicks off the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio 410 Sprint Speedweek, which will probably be the focus of dirt track fans across the state.  Also kicking off Friday is the “No Box Bonanza” weekend at Summit Motorsports Park.  On asphalt, Youth Explosion Night returns for its second visit at Lake County.

Saturday…more!  On the entertainment side, Lake Erie hosts Monster Jam while Lake County hosts the “Knights of Destruction.”  MSA Supermodified teams will turn to Sandusky Speedway, hoping to get some track time before July’s Hy-Miler ISMA Nationals.  Dirt-wise, Sharon, Deerfield, and Hilltop all have regular shows on tap (in case All Star Sprints at Eldora are a bit too far to drive).  Plus, Dragway 42 & Thompson Raceway Park feature drag racing of different types.

You can find all the details for racing this weekend (and beyond) by continuing to read after the break!

Ohio Sprint Speedweek Master Schedule


View Larger Map

More than 700 miles separate the eight events and seven tracks that will take part in nine days that make up the 2013 edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek.  While NEO Racing News will not be directly covering the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champion Sprint tradition, I realize that many fans make the trek across the state to follow 410 Sprint drivers from start to finish.  This post will try to help by containing all the important information in one big, easy to read chunk.  Continue reading after the break for all the race information.

Racing Around NEO: Late-May Showers Bring June Racing Edition

NEORN_Midvale_5.25.13_EDITED (20 of 269)

Alright, so the rain pretty much knocked the entire region’s racing schedule to the mat…but the good news is that the forecast is looking fantastic for this weekend!  That’s a good thing considering that every track is busy this weekend in some form or fashion.

Toledo Speedway highlights Friday night, as the track offers free admission, food, and drink to all kids under 14.  Saturday, the NYPAMA Midgets head to Lake Erie Speedway, while the MSA Supermodifieds set up camp at Lorain County Speedway.  Sunday at 2 PM, Lake County Speedway makes up its “Shootout by the Shore” invitational with three divisions of racing.

NEO Racing News will be bringing you racing action from Midvale Speedway and Lake County Speedway this weekend!  Follow us on Twitter for all the live updates, with pictures and videos posted to the site throughout the weekend.  To find what racing is happening close to you, keep reading after the break!

Racing Around NEO: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

NEORN_Midvale_5.11.13 (1 of 193)

Memorial Day Weekend is finally upon us, which means we as a nation should pause to remember those that we have lost as they have defended our freedoms and serve our country.  We should not ignore our retired and active military, who have and continue to be there for us as a country.

While we pause to reflect and honor, the flood gates in the Northeast Ohio region have opened.  Lake Erie Speedway in Erie, PA will open their 2013 season (sans late models) Saturday night, while Attica takes a week off to prep for the World of Outlaws.  Fremont Speedway spends the weekend with the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions, while Sharon Speedway doubles-up with the RUSH late Model Touring Series.  Modifieds are the main theme at three tracks this weekend, with special races planned at Lorain (Saturday), Sandusky (Sunday), and Lake County (Monday).

NEO Racing News will be at Midvale Speedway for its 60th Anniversary celebration, and Sandusky Speedway for the second leg of the Modified Challenge.

It’s a full weekend of racing…keep reading for the full schedule of events! Continue reading Racing Around NEO: Memorial Day Weekend Edition
