FREMONT, Ohio – Fremont Speedway
will kick off one of its most diverse and exciting schedules in its 59-year
history on Saturday, April 17, as the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints,
Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints and Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks
get ready to sling the clay on Pepsi Night.
New this year, “The Track
That Action Built” will play host to the dirt modifieds on two occasions
while the stock cars will battle with the dirt trucks twice. There are
also two doubleheader weekends in 2009 – Saturday and Sunday, May 29 and
30 and Friday and Saturday, Sept. 17 and 18.
“We’re really excited about
our schedule. We are giving the fans some new divisions in addition to
our entertaining sprints and trucks. We are continuing to pay the highest
weekly purse in the state and that’s thanks to our great fans and loyal
teams,” said Fremont Promoter Rich Farmer.
Last year saw a lot of exciting
racing and some drama play out during the course of the season and that
will continue in 2010. Will Brock Mayes defend his 410 sprint championship
or will Byron Reed regain his throne or will it be Chris Andrews, Mike
Linder, Craig Mintz or a host of other talented drivers? Who will step
up to take the 305 championship now that Todd Heuerman has moved to a different
division? Can Steve Endicott defend his truck title or will Steve Sabo,
Cory Ward, Bob Dible, Jim McGrath and a host of other drivers lay claim
to the championship? Can Craig Mintz defend his Kistler Racing Products
Fremont Attica Sprint Title? Which 305 sprint driver will step up to claim
the first ever FAST title for that division? What rookies will be impressive
To find out the answers to
the questions above, you have to be at “The Track That Action Built.”
Once again in 2010 there
will be special events for the kids. One lucky child will go home each
week with a new bicycle and heat race winners from alternating racing divisions
will hand out a trophy to some little girl or boy each week.
Gates will open April 17
at 4 p.m. with racing action heating up at 7 p.m. Admission is $13 for
adults; $10 for senior citizens; $6 for teens ages 11-16 and kids 10 and
under get in free. Pit passes are $25.
“We offer a lot of fun and
excitement and great food for the money. Come out and experience the thrill
of short-track racing and you’ll become part of a very large, fun racing
family,” added Farmer.
Fremont Speedway is located
just south of the Ohio Turnpike Exit 91 (south of the U.S. 20/St. Rt. 53
intersection) at the corner of Rawson Ave. and North Street in the historic
Sandusky County Fairgrounds.
