(Stewart, Ohio) Following an off-weekend to close out the month of June, the Skyline Speedway is set to return to action this Sunday July 9th, as the track hosts it's Mid-Season Championship and Autograph Night special. The event which was originally scheduled for Friday July 7th, was moved to the Sunday date due to the projected forecast of rain and unfavorable weather. With the AMRA Late Models, Modifieds, Sport Mods, 4-Cylinders & Mini Wedges all set to do battle, fans are sure to see their share of racing action during the old school Sunday evening event.'
The last event at the Skyline Speedway which was also held on Sunday evening due to weather, saw a packed pit area and close racing throughout the evening. With a dominant performance by Tyler Carpenter in the Late Models, and Kyle Bond's close AMRA Modified win that came courtesy of a little close racing action and much excitement in the final laps plus solid shows in the support classes, the Skyline Speedway is ready to pick the action up a notch once again. Promoter Steve Curtis and staff looks forward to this Sunday's event and have heard from numerous drivers across the region who plan to make the trek to Skyline and do battle as apart of the racing program.
With the 2017 season now reaching it's midway point, Skyline Speedway officials are excited to use Sunday's event as a "double points paying" event for all participating classes. With drivers battling for points championships as the heat of the summer approaches, Sunday's show could have huge implications for drivers and their title hunts.
Also apart of the racing program is the always popular autograph night at intermission. This week, track officials plan to allow drivers and teams a 15-20 minute autograph period during intermission where fans can come out on the track, meet their favorite drivers and see the cars that put on the show just before they prepare to do battle in the evening's features. This event is always a hit among fans and competitors and fans are encouraged to come out and support it!
Sunday's racing program will kick off with gates opening at 3 PM and Mini Wedges taking the track at 5:30, with Hot Laps to follow. General Admission remains at $12 for adults, with kids 10 & under getting in free, while pits also remain at $30 with kids 5 & under getting in for $15.
* As in the past, the staff plans to run the show in an efficient and quick manner that allows fans to be on the road back home at a decent hour.
On behalf of promoter Steve Curtis and staff, we hope to see you out at the Skyline Speedway this Sunday afternoon and sincerely appreciate your support!
