Patience is the current key word as fans, teams, and sponsors at the Ivy Tech Community College Indianapolis Speedrome® eye opening day. The exciting repaving efforts have us now aimed at Saturday April 19th as the first date of competition. “Every step in the process of creating this new racing surface takes a specified amount of time to do it right”, commented track Managing Partner Larry Curry. “Mother Nature has given us some adjustments in the work schedule via rain and temperature. We want to race as much as the teams, but getting this repave done sets up a great future by doing it the right way. We are doing everything in our power to run April 19th.” Curry also noted that the time table will include several practice dates for teams to tour the new one-fifth-mile before an official event. Many drivers have already expressed support in the importance of getting the best job done over the fact of missing a weekend of racing.
This unscheduled delay is turning into a big positive for many teams who still need some final touches on their cars. This is very much a bonus for Speedrome faithful viewers by bringing additional cars into play for the Welcome Back Fans $5 Ticket opener now tentative for April 19th. The Advance Auto Sales Late Models, Stocks, IndyAutoRecyclers.com Roadrunners, Lawrence Towing Hornets, Circle City Pyrotechnics Jr Faskarts, and Jr Hornets should have strong rosters that Saturday with the excitement factor of driving on the fresh layout. The night will also feature a talented roster from the USSA Mel Kenyon Midget series.
