FREMONT, Ohio - FREE ADMISSION!
That's right, race fans can

have access to the track until dusk.
There is a $10 pits fee.
The concession stands will also be open, so dad and
mom, bring the kids out
for an affordable, entertaining day of fun.
"Since we're expecting several
new, young drivers in all the divisions this
year, we wanted to give
them a chance to get some laps before the pressure
of opening night," said
Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer. "And, it
gives our track personnel
a chance to work out the bugs before opening night
so we can make sure our
fans are taken care of."
Fremont Speedway opens for
its 57th year of racing on Saturday, April 19, on
Pepsi Night with the 410
