On the books will be the first annual “Community Work Weekend” scheduled for April 28th and 29th. Both days will start at 10 am. Many people were in contact with Penn Can promoter Chad Towner and wanted to donate time and supplies. Since the response has been overwhelming, it was decided to make it two days to accommodate everyone’s schedule. Supplies that are needed are white paint, paint sprayers, brushes, rakes, shovels, cleaning supplies, large garbage bags, contractor size garbage bags, paper towels.
May 4th will be the first open practice at the speedway. This is open to any car with a roll cage. All drivers must have personal safety equipment. Pit gates will open at 5 with the first cars hitting the track at 7. Pit admission for the night will be $20.00. Grandstand admission will be free, the speedway does ask that non-perishable food donations be made for the local food banks.
Opening day will be May 11th. A family pack is being put together and will be announced shortly. General admission will be $12.00, and the pit area will be $35.00. Season passes for the pits are in the works and will be announced along with the family pack to save fans money. Please keep checking our Facebook page as the website is getting updated soon.
