Re: 70th Season Opener
70TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR OF RACING SET FOR SATURDAY, APRIL 4TH WITH ANNUAL GRIT CRATE SPORTSMAN SERIES “COLD CRACKER” EVENT.
KIRKWOOD, NY…The historic quarter clay oval at Five Mile Point Speedway will begin the 70th consecutive year of racing on Saturday, April 4th. The annual “Cold Cracker” for the GRIT Crate Sportsman will headline the opening day of racing.
Saturday night weekly racing will continue throughout April and the summer months featuring the Big Block/Small Block Modifieds, Crate Sportsman, Factory Stocks, 600 Modifieds, Front Wheel Drive Four Cylinders and Junior Slingshot/600 Modifieds. Approximately 16 races are on tap with a full schedule to be released in the weeks to come.
A big calendar of events and special promotions will again dot the schedule upon it’s release. The 70th Anniversary Season will also see some former stars from the past returning to competition.
Fan-favorite, DIRTcar Hall of Fame Member and one of the original 50 Greatest Driver’s at Five Mile Point Speedway, Carl Nagel has recently announced he is expecting to compete in several Modified races this season. This year would remarkably ear-mark his eighth decade of racing at the speedway. This is believed to be a national record.
Three-time RPM National Promoter of the Year Regional Award winner Andrew Harpell will return to lead the operations of the family owned landmark speedway. Harpell brings a wealth of experience to the speedway for this big anniversary season.
