SCHEDULING/PRICING INFORMATION FOR THE BOO BASH
After much discussion, Newport Speedway has decided to run the season-ending Boo Bash on Saturday ONLY, instead of a two day event as originally thought.The schedule for that weekend is as follows:
10am - Gates open
11am - Grandstand open
Noon - Practice, followed by qualifying
3pm - Racing begins
Prices - Tickets - $15, Pit - $45
ALL weekly classes will be competing in their final points races.
Pure 4 (Twin 35 races)
Street Stocks (Twin 50 races)
Enduro (200 laps)
FRIDAY NIGHT PRACTICE
- There will be an open practice session scheduled for Friday, October 28th beginning at 5pm. Gates open at 4pm, price is $10 per person.
RACING CANCELLED FOR OCTOBER 22
10/20 - Due to insurance reasons, Newport Speedway will not be racing this weekend as originally planned. Yes we know this is the third schedule change since the big crash at the SEST race, and we are sure many of you are frustrated with this, as are we.
However, in this situation, it is out of our hands, the track's insurance company wants to inspect the repairs to the turn 2 wall to cover our butts and to give them assurances that the wall is safe for competitors and spectators, and apparently they cannot have a representative come out and inspect until next week.
With this schedule change, the Boo Bash event on October 29th will go on as planned but it will also be the final points races for the weekly divisions.
Again we apologize for the obvious inconvenience and frustration for this cancellation and rescheduling, we're feeling it too. But safety is paramount and we want to make sure that our facility is race-ready and approved so we don't make the national news for something horrific happening again.
OPEN PRACTICE SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY
10/12 - Newport Speedway will be holding an open practice for all interested parties this Saturday, October 15 beginning at Noon. Cost to get into the infield pit area is $10 per person. Spectators are welcome to watch in the stands, however the tier parking in turns 1 and 2 will be closed for this event.
FEEDBACK REQUESTED FOR POSSIBLE NEW DIVISION IN '17
Newport Speedway is working on a possible deal for a Straight Rail division for 2017. There would be a $5000 points fund for the top five or six cars and a 602 engine to the eventual division champion.
The series would involves only running a 602 motor and possibly a 2-tire rule. Any tampering with the motor would result in a fine and loss of points.
We would like feedback from competitors on if this is something we should pursue to make the overall program at Newport Speedway better for everyone. Please email us at email@example.com
6/14: Newport Speedway is excited to announce the Stock-4 racing division! The Stock-4's will run the same rules package as the Mini Stock division which competes at 411 Speedway with the exception that the cars must have windshields, window nets and will run on Legends tires. (Tires must be bought at the track and you can purchase a set for $60, or $15 each.)
The first race for this division will take place on July 9th.
The rules for this division can be found here: http://newportspeedway.weebly.com/stock-4.html
