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!

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.

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
