UPDATES AND OTHER INFO
Seymour June 16- We would like to THANK all of the drivers, crews and fans for their continued support throughout the weird start to the 2015 season caused by the weather. We are hoping, that after last weeks nice day, that the patterns are changing for the better and for the rest of the season.
The track added 4 practice nights to the 2015 schedule, and they have been attended very well. We have been asked if we could add more dates. We have looked at the schedules and will add another night on Tuesday June 23 if there is enough interest. This is also the night 141 Speedway will have their practice session for the CLASH next week. The month of July has a date for the 14th. After that, the rest of the month is crowded with the fair taking up 2 weeks and the WOO event at Shawano. August has the 11th set, and we will look at adding 1 or 2 nights at the end of the season to help those heading to Boone and other end of the year events.
Contact a club official or through facebook with interest or comments on the practices.
The WDLMA Late Models Lucky 7 Series event that was scheduled for Memorial Day, and rained out, has been rescheduled for Sunday August 23.
The next event for the WDLMA Lucky 7 Series is coming up on Sunday July 19th.
Also mark your calendars for the return of the IRA Outlaw Sprints on Sunday, August 2, along with our full regular program.
We appreciate the positive comments about sponsoring the WAPL’s “In The Draft” program every week on M-W-F at 1:40 PM. We also hope you have been listening at 105.7 for the past few weeks to get registered for the Father Day Grand Prize from the Seymour Speedway, which will be given away this week.
It was brought to our attention a couple weeks ago that there was a problem getting through to the track on the phone. We apologize for the inconvienience, but until we were asked about it, did not know there was a problem getting through from certain areas. It was fixed the following week and if there are any other issues, please let us know. The track phone is 920-833-7726.
We have had several problems, as have other tracks, getting the new SPEEDNET programs to work properly. Most of all, calculating and sending standings and other information to be posted correctly. The averages used for lineups ARE being checked and have been correct each week, even though some of the posted information may not get updated right away. We are staying on top of this to make sure everything is and continues to be accurate.
The weekly point sheets were missing last week, and that was my fault, as I left them on the counter at the shop when I left for the track Sunday. I will make sure that does not happen again.
Hope to see you all at the Seymour Speedway this week, Sunday, June 21. Bring dad out for Fathers Day.
Also, a shout out to GSR Racing Supplies, as they are sponsoring a BIG night for the Kids Club, donating several bikes for a big bike giveaway. This has become an annual Fathers Day event, and one the kids really look forward to.
All for know, Hope to see you all this Sunday at the Seymour Speedway. Don’t forget, racing at 5:30 every Sunday night.
We know you have other options for racing during the week and really appreciate you choosing to support the Seymour Speedway.
