WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (4/21/16) – A new season is on the horizon for Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio. The track, celebrating 13 years of racing this season, is set to open the gates for the first time in 2016 this Saturday night, April 23rd. Being one of the youngest tracks and one of the best when it comes to dirt track racing is no small feat. Waynesfield does both on a weekly basis, evident by nothing short of an explosive 2015 season.
The 13th season will see the return of all five weekly classes, two of which have undergone name changes for the new season. Satellite Connections on S. Dixie Highway in Lima has signed on to be the premiere sponsor of the Non Wing sprint cars. Longtime supporter turned premier sponsor Quest Federal Credit Union, with branches in Kenton, Ada, and Bellefontaine, has also signed on to be the class sponsor of the UMP Modifieds for 2016. Performance Powder Coating, Block Insurance, and Indian Lake Outfitters all return as headlining sponsors for Waynesfield’s 13th season.
Saturday’s season opener will see a full program of racing from the Satellite Connections Non Wing Sprint Cars, Performance Powder Coating AMSA Mini Sprints, Quest Federal Credit Union UMP Modifieds, Block Insurance Tough Trucks, and the Indian Lake Outfitter Compacts. Pit gates open at 4PM; grandstands at 5PM. Cars hit the racing surface for hot laps at 6PM with the first green flag of 2016 following at 7PM. Adult general admission is just $12, kids 11-15 years of age are admitted for just $6, and everyone under the age of ten is admitted for FREE. Pit admission is $25.
