JACKSON, Minn. (May 3, 2016) – Jackson Motorplex officials have elected to push back the start of the 2016 season by one week after more than six inches of rain has hammered the recently renovated facility.
The season-opening Folkens Brothers Trucking Spring Nationals will now be held on Friday, May 20, and will still showcase a $10,000-to-win feature for the Spirit Lake Silver & Gold NSL 410 Sprint Cars. The Last-Deck® 360 Sprint Cars and Liquid Nitro IMCA 305 sprints are also on the card.
The opening night for the IMCA classes will be Saturday, May 21.
“We are all disappointed that this decision had to be made, but it was the right decision to get everything ready prior to the season opener,” Jackson Motorplex General Manager Doug Johnson said. “We are very excited to debut an ALL NEW Jackson Motorplex and I think the fans, competitors and sponsors will be in for a treat during the season-opening weekend and beyond.”
On Wednesday, May 18, Jackson Motorplex will have a practice night that will also serve as a Fan Appreciate Night. Race teams will be able to get on the track from 7-9 p.m. Fans are invited to check out the action, get a tour of the new VIP suites and see the new Impact Signs video board free of charge for the night.
