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

Season Opens Saturday at Attica

After snow, rain, and cold conditions washed out last week’s action, cars will take to the track today at Attica and Hilltop.

Attica Raceway Park had cancelled their Friday night visit from the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions, but their scheduled race tonight will be one of two dirt tracks opening up the 2013 calendar.  The Sprints will be joined by the track’s UMP DIRTcar Late Models and 305 Sprints for a full night of racing.  Main gates at the track open at 4 PM, with racing starting at 7 PM.  Adults are $22 through the door, with discounts for seniors and children.

Hilltop Speedway is the other track opening tonight with their weekly divisions of racing.  The Millersburg, OH track will feature Late Models, Modifieds, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, Trucks, and Mini Wedges.  Stands open at 4 PM, with hotlaps at 5 PM and racing at 6:30 PM.  General admission costs $10, and kids 12 and under are free.

“Springduro” Cancelled by Weather

Sharon Speedway has cancelled its “Springduro 150” scheduled for March 30th due to weather.

For a second week, the track has had to scrap plans for the event because of Mother Nature intervening with cold temperatures, rain, and snow melt.  Officials were concerned with both the 3/8-mile dirt track surface and surrounding parking areas.

“Nothing has changed since last Wednesday when we had to postpone the event, in fact with the additional rounds of wet snow and cold conditions things are worse,” explained General Manager Dave Willoughby in a statement from the track. Continue reading “Springduro” Cancelled by Weather

Attica Opener Cancelled, Focus Shifts to All Star Weekend

Mother Nature is delaying Attica Raceway Park‘s silver season by a week, as the track cancelled Friday’s (March 22nd) opener due to poor conditions.

“The grounds, especially the parking areas, are just too wet and soft,” stated Director of Operations Rex LeJeune in a track release.  He continued, saying, “With rain and ice and snow the first couple of days of the week and very little drying opportunity and coupled with the forecast which calls for highs only in the mid 30s and lows in the 20s….that’s not a good combination for the fans and race teams.”

The delay means that Attica’s 25th season will instead kick off with a full weekend of UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints.  A full slate of racing will run on Friday, March 29th and Saturday, March 30th.  Series on the schedule include the All Star Sprints, UMP DIRTcar Late Models, and 305 Sprints.  Gates open at 5 PM and 4 PM, respectively.  Adult tickets for Friday are $18 and $22 on Saturday.  Kids under ten are free.  For full pricing and race times, visit Attica Raceway Park’s website.

Sharon Speedway is still scheduled to kick off its season on Saturday, March 23rd.  Their “Springduro” Enduro is scheduled for a 2:30 PM start time.  Adult tickets are $7, kids 13 and under are free.

Wayne County Speedway Hosts Outlaws, All Stars

Midvale Speedway Will See MERS, Supermods, Stock Cars

Midvale Speedway has released its full 2013 schedule, guaranteeing that New Philadelphia asphalt fans will have plenty to see this summer.

Several regional touring series will stop by the three-tenths mile speedway.  The Midwest Supermodified Association is visiting twice in 2013…once in June and again in August.  Kicking off the Fourth of July “long weekend” in style, the Main Event Racing Series will bring their Super Late Models for a special Wednesday night race.  Also swinging by Midvale in August is the Super Cup Stock Car Series.
