April 28 cancelled, Practice set

April 23 - N.E.W. DIRT officials met at the Seymour Speedway this afternoon and have cancelled their 2013 season opener set for this week, Sunday April 28.    Club President, Tom Schmidt  said "the weather has not co-operated enough to allow crews to work the track at all this "spring", and we do not want to have problems on opening night."

The opener will now be set for Sunday May 5, racing at 5 PM.

Schmidt also announced a track work day for this saturday, April 27 starting at 9 AM.    There are several projects that need attention before the first race.   Anyone is welcome to come out and lend a hand.

There will also be a practice set for this Sunday, April 28, weather permitting.   Drivers will have a chance to shake down their cars before the opener and it will also help to pack the track in.    Practice will run from 2 til dark.     Concessions will also be available Sunday as staff gets everything in final order for the opener.    Grandstand will be open free of charge.



Ready for week 2


May 11- N.E.W. DIRT is ready for week number 2 on the 2013 schedule.   Bumper to Bumper and Scott Marcks are the Mother's Day sponsors which will feature 6 divisions on the 1/3/ mile banked oval.

Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods, Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars, Street Stock, 4 Cylinders and Fastrack Late Models are set to do battle with racing starting at 5 PM.   Pits open at 2 PM and the grandstand at 3 PM. 



Meeting Notes

April 2- N.E.W. DIRT held their monthly meeting on Monday night and several items of interest concerning the 30th Anniversary season at the Seymour Speedway were discussed.

First- A reminder that the 4th Annual Spring Thaw which was scheduled for this Saturday April 6th is cancelled and will not be rescheduled.   Weekly racing was supposed to start the following week, but the late Spring has pushed the starting date back to Sunday April 28 with racing starting at 5 PM. 

Club President, Tom Schmidt spent the last 2 saturdays removing all of the snow and ice off the track so the sun and hopefully warm air can start to dry the track.   The frost is out and track work will begin in earnest as soon as possible.

There will be an open practice at the track tentatively scheduled for saturday April 13.    If the 13th will not work, it will be held on the 20th.    Practice will be run in the afternoon and definate times will be announced.

The full schedule is complete and will be posted here shortly.

Reminders also about the starting times for the weekly programs.   From the April 28 through May 26, racing will start at 5 PM.   From the June 2nd race and through the end of the season, racing will start at 6 PM.

Pit prices for the season will be $18.00 for club members and $25.00 for non members.  Club membership is $10.00. 

The weekly racing programs will feature 6 divisions in 2013.  The IMCA Modifieds, Stock Cars and Sport Mods will be joined by the Street Stocks and 4 Cylinders along with the return of Fast Track Late Models on regular Sunday night programs.  The WDLMA Lates will be part of the 3 race Summer Holiday Classic series.

All of the pieces are in place for an exciting season on the 1/3 mile banked oval at the Seymour Speedway.  As long as Mother Nature decides to co-operate.
