FREE GRANDSTAND ADMISSION THIS SATURDAY AT FIVE MILE POINT SPEEDWAY
FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT FOR 64 YEARS OF GREAT RACING SUPPORT!

 

 

KIRKWOOD, NY…Five Mile Point Speedway is saying thank you to their fans with a FREE admission night of racing this Saturday, August 2nd.  The Fan Appreciation Night is our way of saying thank you for supporting the popular quarter mile oval for 64 consecutive years.  Racing gets underway at 6 p.m. with grandstand gates opening at 3:30 p.m.

 

This Saturday is no watered down program.  The racing schedule will see the Big Block/Small Block Modifieds in competition as well as a complete show of racing.  The IMCA Modifieds, Street Stocks, Lightning Cats, 600 c.c. Modifieds and Factory Stocks will be joined by the $1,000 to win special for Sportsman this Saturday.

 

Five Mile Point Speedway owner Andrew Harpell commented on the one time Fan Appreciation Night, “We wanted to thank our longtime area fans for their support over the years with this Fan Appreciation night.”  He added, “We know the local economy is really struggling and this may be the only opportunity some will have this year to attend a race. We want to just say thanks to them and give a fun night out of racing.”

 

The grandstand gates will officially open at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.  Practice will begin at 5:15 p.m. with racing set for 6:00 p.m. No coolers (food or beverages) will be permitted in to the grandstand area this Saturday.  The speedway concession areas will be fully operational with some of the best food and great prices that people have grown accustomed to.  Tailgating is permitted and fans are encouraged to arrive early as several race cars will be on display.  Overflow spectator parking will occur off of turn 4 in the old driver’s pit area.

 

For many people that may not have attended a race in years they will be impressed with the many improvements that have occurred in recent years.  Every bleacher on the property has been replaced with a new steel structured section erected six years ago.  The stadium lightning makes the viewing of the great action awesome for the fans.  All new safety fencing, along with a revamping of the speedway layout and backstretch pit area has really made the facility a neat place to see fantastic racing every Saturday night.

 

Race time this Saturday, August 2nd is 6 p.m. with practice set to start at 5:05 p.m.  Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. and grandstand gates will open at 4 p.m.  Kids 12 and younger will be admitted free of charge in to the grandstand area.

 

Five Mile Point Speedway will be silent the following Saturday, August 9th for the Race of Champions event at the Chemung Speedrome in Chemung, New York.
