Big Changes at Plymouth Speedway

PlymouthSpeedwayLogoEd Kennedy owner of the Plymouth Speedway, General Manager Mike Zielinski, Events Coordinator and Race Director Keith Beeching, and the entire staff at Plymouth Speedway are excited about all the changes happening at the race track.

While many drivers are working on their cars for the new season at the Playground of Power, they are making several improvements to the track during the off-season.

It’s already started with the installation of new clay.  The surface was tested and the analysis indicated that the new surface will provide more grip and more grooves of racing.  A steeper banking was also created.  Although the whole track isn’t complete yet, more clay will be delivered soon, weather permitting.

Concrete blocks were brought in to build up the walls on the outer part of the track which will be safer for drivers and fans.  In another safety move, a new exit was designed to allow cars to exit the track in a more efficient manner.

New bleacher seats have been delivered to the speedway which will offer a more comfortable viewing experience for the fans because they will raise at least 20 rows from the main level. Plans also include the instillation of decking on the lower area allowing patrons to bring in their own seating and new lighting has been purchased.   Additional improvements are also planned.

The 2015 season will feature the All Stars 410 Sprints for the Earl Gaerte Classic, Dirt Late Models, USAC National Midgets in May, a Mod Squad race in June, Open Wheel Wednesday in June and the Sprints on Dirt for two races including the Bob Newton Classic in August.  The World Series of Dirt is set for Sept. 12 with 410 Non-Wing Sprints and a full lineup that will be offered all season including UMP Modifieds, Super Streets, Thunder Stocks, Cyber Stocks and Non-Wing 600 Sprints.  More information on the newest addition to the lineup of features, Cyber Stocks, can be found on our website at www.plymouthspeedway.net or call Mike Zielinski at (574) 532-7969.
