Hesston Speedway

Post by tripod16652 » Thu Nov 14, 2013 6:24 am

I just saw on their website that the track is up for sale or lease, apparently Dave Eriksen's health issues have forced him to step away, the whole thing is just so sad. I'm by all means not big a fender car fan but I must say that he has done a fantastic job out there with all of the upgrades and high paying shows. I hope that someone takes the place over and keeps it going, it has long been a local tradition for the people of Huntingdon County to pack that place on Saturday nights. Last but certainly not least I wish Dave all of the best in his battle, keep fighting.

I've heard someone bought the track and also heard someone or a party are gonna promote the track next season... Guess we shall wait and see... Really wish they would race on Friday nights...
