Race on August 5th Cancelled

last 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!

This weekend marks the first ever Race and Rock night at Spud Speedway. This Saturday night, July 14th, the action all gets under way at 6pm as we welcome the Wicked Good Vintage Tour back for another great race. If you missed last year’s vintage race, you missed watching some of the coolest race cars around. Come join us and check out race cars from the 1930’s to the 1970’s battle it out to see who has the best little hot rod. We also will be featuring all of our weekly races as well racing under the lights! Immediately following the races, local rock band Unlucky Joe will be there to entertain everyone with their high energy rock and roll concert. Unlucky Joe has performed at many other local events over the past few years and they are sure to please anyone that likes a great party and loves to have a good time. The Limestone Snow Hawks will be there serving up ice cold beer in the beer garden as well for the entire show as a fundraiser for their snowmobile club. Of coarse you must be 21 years old to enter the beer garden and there will be a 100% ID check with no exceptions, so be sure to bring your ID. Be sure to get to the track this weekend for a great time following the Loring Speed Time Trials. This is a family event and everyone is invited to come and enjoy the show all for only $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids 5-16, and we also offer a family pass for $25.00 for 2 adults and 2 kids passes.
