2012 Tentative Auto City Speedway Schedule Released!
It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone so quickly. Although 2011 was probably one of the wettest years we have ever had with a record number of rained out events, we managed to squeeze in some great nights of side by side racing action, close finishes and fun filled nights for the kids. Hopefully we have created some great memories for you and the fans that will last a lifetime.
Looking forward, 2012 will bring much of the same type of racing action as 2011, but with some changes and added excitement at Auto City Speedway.
The Schedule is pretty much completed! Racing will begin on April 28th with the 2012 Season opener “The Action is Back”! The opener is highlighted by the LaFontaine Performance Center Super Stocks (formally ACSS), Midwest Racing Scene Sportsman, Tiger Auto Salvage Street Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Fig- 8’S. (still confirming sponsors). Traveling series in 2012 will include the “Must See Racing Extreme Sprint Series”, Michigan Legend Series, and Dwarf Cars, and added to the lineup for the first time in a long time the “Main Event”, Midwest Super Modified Series and the JEG/CRA All Star Series.
We have decided to scale back the Super Outlaw Late Models to only the “Main Event” on Memorial weekend. A new tradition will now be added (name to be announced) and ran by our ACSS with the JEG/CRA All Star Series …Tentative Wednesday August 15th, this date has been added due to the only day available, and a special announcement about this event will be confirmed in January!
