Weekend Race Schedule

last updated on 8/8/2013

Maine Bureau of Highway Special Feature Night at Spud Speedway Practice Schedule for August 10th Pits Open at 2:30 Grandstands open at 5:00PM 3:00-4:00 Open Practice for all classes 4:00-4:10 Northern Lights & Challenger 4:10-4:20 Fast Fours & Street Stocks 4:20-4:30 Outlaw Sportsman 4:30-5:00 Open Practice All Classes 5:00-5:30 Kart Practice 5:25-5:35 Driver’s Meeting 5:50 Race line up Race Schedule Races start @ 6:00pm All Races Count tonight! The finish will be determined by the best average finish of all 3 events of the night. We will start each class by points standings, the second race starting position will be determined by the finish of the first race and the third race starting position will be determined by the finish of the second race. In all cases the field will be fully inverted so the winner starts in the rear of the field each race. Remember that the finishes count in each race to determine a winner so there will be no sand bagging. The winner will be determined by the lowest point total, for example: a racer finishes 2nd in all 3 races he would have a total of 6 points, another racer finishes 1st in 2 races and 5th in the third race and has a point total of 7 points, this would mean the racer that had three 2nd place finishes wins the overall event for the night. In the event of a tie in points the racer that finishes highest in the 20 lap feature will be determined the winner. 2 races - 10 Laps each Kart Heats –Kids Class (5 laps), Jr. Champ, Sr. Champ (10 laps) Aroostook Trusses Northern Lights Challenger Series (Bomber Cars Allowed to race in Challenger Class this weekend) Street Stocks Percy's Auto Sales Fast Fours Coca Cola Outlaw Sportsman Features 20 Laps each Kart Feature Races – Kids Kart (7 laps), Jr. Champ Kart, Sr. Champ Kart (15 laps) Aroostook Trusses Northern Lights Challenger Series (Bomber Cars Allowed to race in Challenger Class this weekend) Street Stocks Percy's Auto Sales Fast Fours Coca Cola Outlaw Sportsman 25 laps

Weekend Update

last updated on 7/19/2013

This weekend the Canadian Atlantic Open Wheels will not be racing at Spud Speedway. Unfortunatly the do the questionable weather forecast many of the racers traveling from as far away as Nova Scotia are not going to make the trip. We are going to work close with the tour to reschedule at a later date in this season to have them race. We still plan on having a great night of racing with all of our regular weekly classes and our Motorcycle parade to start the night off!

Come Send the Warner Family Some County Support

last updated on 7/16/2013

Saturday night we are starting the show with a motorcycle parade. We are going to try to have bikes parked all the way around the track to hold a moment of silence in memory of Bill Warner's life and his dedication to racing and motorsports. Please join us with your bike if you have one to help us make this memorable. We will look to take photos of this moment and send them on to the family of Bill Warner to show them a little support from the County, in this difficult time. By the way, you do not need to buy a ticket and attend the races in order to participate in this portion of the show. We will begin the night with this and bikes will enter the track and then leavae the track area before racing begins. If you would like to stay and watch the show, buy a ticket come on in and enjoy. If you just want to come and be part of sending some county spirit to the Warner family please by all means come and join us with your bike at 5:50 outside of the pit gate. Thank you
