(Stewart, Ohio) As it was announced in late June, the Skyline Speedway is slated to reopen for a short but action packed 2018 season under the direction of Steve Curtis and staff. The track which has sat dormant throughout 2018, will see cars return to the track to do battle on July 27th, for an old school Friday night under the lights at the long popular speedway.
The track currently plans to operate on a 6-8 race part time schedule, with the opportunity for additional events if fan/competitor support along with regional schedules call for it. The track will feature racing in the Late Models, Modifieds, Sport Mods and WRA Mini Wedges on a full-time basis. 4-Cylinders will primarily make up the 4th competing class, (4-Cylinders on July 27th) as they did in 2017, but car counts and other factors will dictate any possible change of line up as seen necessary by Skyline's management.
Events at the track will take place on various "race nights" including some Friday's, Saturdays and a Sunday show or two. The track's complete 2018 schedule is TBA, but the track's staff does indicate that fans will see the return of many of Skyline's favorite events including the Ronnie & Sarah Bond Memorial and Harvest 50, along with a possible surprise or two in the process. Steve and the entire staff prided themselves on hosting unique events in 2017, in an effort to go the extra mile for Skyline's fans and promise to do their best to replicate that effort again in 2018.
More information will be coming soon, as the track preps for their July 27th opening night. The effort to reopen the track has been nothing short of consuming, as Steve Curtis along with various other individuals have been making upgrades to electric systems, fan amenities, facility equipment and more. This effort would had never been possible without the help of so many, and more so, the support of so many great fans and drivers! Today more than ever, Skyline Speedway (along with any track) needs your support in attracting fans and doing our part to keep racing alive in the Ohio Valley region!
