Well it looks like the weather is going to get us again today. It has started raining in Caribou now and all radars and forecasts show showers at 10 and 12:30 along with numerous ones this afternoon. We are canceling the races for today and all special features along with the 2 for 1 grandstand admission will take place next Saturday night at 6pm. Next week we also have the Canadian Atlantic Open Wheels coming to race as well, so it should be one heck of a show! Hope to see everyone there.

Special Feature Sundaylast updated on 8/9/2012
Alright Spud Speedway fans, this weekend we are back to racing now that the fair is done and over. Congradulations to everyone who competed at the fair in the demo derby and the tuff truck competition. This Sunday a 1:00 we go back to green and all at a 2 for 1 addmission for the grandstands. That's right only $10.00 to get in and the second person is free! Help us spread the word we need your help to keep racing alive in the County! We will be having special features in all classes. The Northern Lights will be a 25 lap race and the top 3 finishers will be allowed to go up and race against the Fast 4's. Fast 4's race cars are allowed to race a regular DOT radial tire no wider than a 60 series to allow more cars in to race. Also the Fast 4's will race 2 10 lap races and the best average finish wins! Street Stocks and Super Streets will race together in a 25 lap shootout. The two classes will be scored seperatly but the action will be exciting! We will have a special feature for the Challenger class that you won't want to miss as bomber cars are allowed to come and have fun. See you all at the races!

Race on August 5th Cancelledlast updated on 7/27/2012
The Racing for August 5th will be postponed until a later date due to many of the Spud Speedway employees not being available to work on that date. I appologize for this situation but we just have to many people unavailable. I will open the track for an open practice session at 12:00- 2:00 on that Sunday. We will also have a follow up drivers meeting at 11-12 to discuss some very important changes the track will need to implament due to the lack of attendance. Please help us to spead the word to all drivers. Thank you
Demo Derby Championship!last updated on 7/27/2012
The Northern Maine Fair Association and Spud Speedway are joining together again to offer a two part demolition derby series which will crown one overall champion at the end of both of their respective events. The rules package is the same at both events, so racers do not need to modify their equipment in any way. The points system will work as follows: At each event a score keeper will keep track of the cars involved and establish a finishing order. This will be based on when a car is finished moving and no longer able to compete in the event. At the end of both events we will add the competitors finishes together and the driver with the lowest score(best average finish) will be crowned the overall champion and be awarded an extra $300.00 above and beyond the payouts of each event. (example: a driver finishes in 1st place at the fair would get 1 point and 4th place at Spud Speedway they would get 4 points. They would have 5 points for the two combined events. Another driver finishes 2nd at both events would have 4 points and be awarded the championship because they would have the best overall average finish. ) In the event of a tie the car with the best finish at Spud Speedway would be awarded the championship, this would be the breaker. The fair is hosting their demo derby on Saturday, August 4th and Spud Speedway will host theirs on Saturday, September 1st at their Day of Destruction. Let's get as many cars out there as we can to make both of these events great!
