Weekend Racing Schedule, September 1st through September 3rd

In February, the future of Lake County Speedway was up in the air. The 1/5 mile paved oval was set to go up for auction in April. Would the track in Painesville Township remain? Would a new owner take over the site and turn it into a housing development? Well, race fans can take a deep breath. The track is set to host its “Grand Opening” Saturday night. New ownership is returning to close out the 2017 season with a number of shows and looking to carry a lot of positive momentum into 2018.
Saturday night will feature street stocks, figure 8, renegades, factory fours and parking lot drags. General admission gates open at 4 p.m., qualifying is set to start at 5 p.m. with racing scheduled for 6:30 p.m. For more information and a look at the schedule, visit the tracks Facebook page by searching for The Painesville Speedway.

Show To See

We talked about the opening of Painesville Speedway at the top of the column. There are a number of options if you can’t be there. Attica Raceway Park is hosting the “Attica Ambush” Friday and Saturday. Saturday night’s show features double features with the makeup from Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

If you like dirt late models the Sunoco American Late Model Series will visit three Ohio tracks in as many days this weekend. The series will be at Attica Friday, Oakshade Raceway Saturday and Eldora Speedway on Sunday.

Sunday is a big day for sprint cars. 35 Raceway Park will feature the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association. Wayne County Speedway will host the $10,000 to win Pete Jacobs Memorial with the All Star Sprints and Waynesfield Raceway Park will have a show featuring all sprint cars.
