Hesston Speedway

Post by the27kid » Tue Oct 14, 2014 9:16 am

Is there any one out there that knows what is going on with Hesston Speedway for 2015? If they were planning to run you would think they would produce a tentative rule package.

Man, you took the works right out of my mouth! Really hope someone will take hold of a great track and continue what was started. Anyone know what is to become of Hesston?

it wasn't Davis or Jones.. It was someone from up that way who bought the track.. Rules package released the other day.. No schedule yet but I'm guessing they will race on Saturday nights.. Which personally I feel is wrong.. Friday night racing would get more cars with Bedford pissing guys off and Port/Selinsgrove cars would run there as well.. But we shall see..

Man I hope not Saturday nights. Theirs enough tracks now. Mostly from what I see weekly Selinsgrove and Port are the only ones that get 20 plus Lates a week. Winchester gets around 15, towards the end HTown was having trouble hitting 20. Idk where they would come from for Hesston to be added in the mix as well. :thinking:

Me either.. But I'm getting the feeling and from what some guys said on the Hesston facebook page they don't wanna run against Bedford.. Ya know the same track that's ran everyone off with their AWSOME track prep.. I don't see it working at Hesston for supers on Saturday nights.. But.. Ya know how that goes..

They are going to have to put up a hefty purse to draw cars from any of the tracks. That's hard to do just starting up

Cumberland Speedway at the Allegany County Fairgrounds is looking to run 6-8 races next year, and talk was the new promoter wanted to have a "loose" partnership with Bedford, so I'm assuming they will be running on Saturday nights.

We need another Friday night track for Late Models somewhere.

I wish it was Williams Grove and they would drop the 358 sprints.

Susky could really benefit from running SLMs, LLMs, Street Stocks and another division on Friday nights. No competition for LLM cars (since WG is not running them on Friday), no competition for Street Stocks (Again, WG not running them on Friday) and the closest SLM competition is Bedford or Potomac (100+ mi each)

Thanks,
Jeff.
