Racing Around NEO: “May the Fourth Be With You” Edition

May has finally arrived on the racing calendar, which means that nearly every racetrack in the Northeast Ohio area is up and running.  The sole operating track missing is Lake Erie Speedway, which will not be open until Memorial Day weekend.

From dirt to drag, there is something for everybody this weekend.  Highlighting your Friday is Attica, which is hosting a 305/360 Challenge race.  Weekly racing fills out the night at 250 Speedway, Toledo, and Wayne County.  Saturday gets a tad busier.

Eleven racing facilities are running Saturday, with options at drag strips, dirt, and asphalt tracks.  NEO Racing News will be at Sandusky Speedway to cover the pits for their opening night of the 2013 season, while BOSS Non Wing Sprints invade Fremont Speedway.  Columbus Motor Speedway will also feature the FAST Legend Car Series.  Regular weekly racing continues across the rest of the region on Saturday, as well.

Remember to use our Track Map page to find the locations of Northeast Ohio racetracks, and our Calendar page to see when races are happening throughout the year. Continue reading Racing Around NEO: “May the Fourth Be With You” Edition

Most Tracks On for Racing Despite Cold

While weather has cancelled racing at a handful of tracks, many others plan to push through the cold and run races.

While there is plenty of great racing still on schedule tonight, the highlight is probably Toledo Speedway in Toledo, OH.  The ARCA / CRA Super Series and Midwest Tour will both hit the track for the 7-UP 150 tonight at 5 PM.  Sharon Speedway features its first Super Late Model Showdown night of the year, while Hilltop Speedway hosts EDGE Modifieds.  Also, a pair of FAST series compete at Fremont and Columbus.  Drivers battling for the Fremont Attica Sprint Title hit up Fremont Speedway for the first time of 2013, while FAST Series Legend Cars take to Columbus Speedway.

Weather was cold and damp enough to cancel racing at Attica Raceway Park last night, and also led to the cancellations of four other races.  Midvale Speedway and Lorain County Speedway were both scheduled to start their seasons tonight, but have pushed things back to the 27th now.  Eldora and Deerfield also cancelled events due to weather conditions.
