VERNON, N.Y. – The Utica-Rome Speedway is slated to officially open Sunday with some improvements made to the track.
According to their website Sunday, May 6th will be the first full point event for the DIRTcar 358-Modifieds, the Broedel Energy DIRTcar Sportsman and the Ted’s Body Shop DIRTcar Pro Stocks. The Rookie Sportsman will round out the PICK 4 program.
The track promotor said they’ve put down new clay to fill in some of the soft spots.
“The sunshine has definitely helped,” Bill Shea said. “We just want to give the surface a couple more days to dry out. The nice weather is definitely helping.”
Opening night will get underway at 6 p.m. with grandstand gates opening at 3:30 p.m. Tickets on Budweiser, VP Race Fuels, and Wilber-Duck Chevrolet Night for the grandstands are just $13. Seniors/Students/Military are $10. Kids under 16 are free.
