FREMONT, Ohio – It’s getting
close to the end of the summer, and wallets are stretched thin. But thanks
to the cooperation of Fremont Speedway, Eldora Speedway, Waynesfield Motorsports
Park and KC Raceway, fans can still watch some great traditional (non-wing)
sprint car racing at a discounted price.
Race fans who bring their
ticket stubs from racing action at Waynesfield, K-C Raceway, Eldora Speedway
and Fremont Speedway from this coming weekend (Friday, July 30 through
Saturday, July 31) will get $2 off general admission prices at the races
on Sunday, Aug. 1 races at Fremont Speedway .
Sunday’s race at Fremont
Speedway is the sixth race of the special series of non-wing races that
lead up to the Second Annual Jack Hewitt Challenge to be run at Waynesfield
Motorsports Park with the Lane Automotive Michigan Traditional Sprints
on Saturday, Aug. 7. It is the second of a special double-header weekend
of racing at “The Track That Action Built,’ as the winged 410 and 305 sprints
and dirt trucks will be in action Saturday, July 31. On Sunday, the non-wing
sprints will be joined by the Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks battling the invading
The Hoosier Racing Tire series
culminates with the $4,000 to win Jack Hewitt Classic at Waynesfield on
Aug. 7. The special non-sanctioned series will include a stop at the famous
Eldora Speedway Saturday, July 31. The winner of the feature events at
both Eldora and Fremont will receive a guaranteed starting spot in the
Hewitt Classic A-main.
The traditional sprint car
series, sponsored by Hoosier Tire, has seen four races so far beginning
in May at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Indiana with Travis Welpott taking
the win. The next stop was in June at Waynesfield with Matt Westfall getting
a hard fought win. Then on July 2, Gas City held the first of the four
Hewitt Classic qualifiers which not only counted for the series points,
but also guaranteed the winner a starting spot in the finale at Waynesfield.
Robert Ballou, “The Madman,” picked up the victory at Gas City, with Westfall
taking the Waynesfield race on July 3, locking both into the Hewitt Classic.
Sunday’s race at Fremont
was originally scheduled for Millstream Speedway in Findlay. However, promoter
Rich Farmer said the event was moved to Fremont due to work schedules and
“The cooperation between
tracks in Ohio has never been greater. I really have to thank Eldora, KC
and Waynesfield…this just goes to show when we all work together, and with
the support of the fans and race teams, we can put on great entertainment
at an affordable price,” said Famer.
Prior to Sunday’s racing
at Fremont, the series will compete Saturday, July 31 at Eldora for a $2,000
to win affair. NAPA auto Parts is presenting the racing at Eldora which
also features the Fastrack Late Models.
On Saturday, the winged 410
and 305 sprints and dirt trucks will compete on Kistler Engines Night at
Fremont Speedway. Gates will open both nights at 4 p.m. with racing underway
at 7 p.m.
