It’s Official.

Raceway Park is closed for the remaining of the 2015 season.

Sunday evening Raceway Park experienced an electrical fire that took out the track lights along with the electric in the concession stands, walk-in cooler and the well. Just two weeks ago we had an electrical problem and had an electrician come out and fix it. Now we’ve had a different panel go up in flames that caused major damage.

After talking with the fire marshal and electricians this will be a timely matter to get things fixed correctly, we will not be able to have things fixed by this weekend so after talking with IMCA we will be ending this season.

Unfortunately this happened at a bad time in the season with the Super Nationals just around the corner and the Iron Cup coming up at Park Jefferson Speedway. There are just too many conflicting dates. We had even considered moving the season over to Park Jefferson to finish out and were denied from IMCA.

After talking with IMCA the four divisions that did not get to race will all receive last place points in their division, leaving the driver positions in points the same. We will take the qualified cars and add the purse up for that division and divide by how many cars qualified so everyone gets equal pay.

We are very disappointed to end the season this way and would like to apologize, we are working on getting the electric fixed correctly to not have these problems in the future and keep everyone safe. The good thing is no one got hurt last night, it was a scary moment.

We would like to thank everyone who supported Raceway Park in 2015 and look forward to bigger and better things in 2016.

It’s Race Day! We Are Racing!
