  • Weekend Outlook 5/4-5/6

    After cold weather and rain dominated the majority of Ohio last weekend, the weather is finally looking sunny and dry for a week of racing across the state!

    Friday features a couple of sprint car races in the state. Limaland Motorsports Park has their first Non Wing race of the year which will be running an Open tire rule for the weekend (as is Waynesfield). Other divisions on the card at limaland are the Modifieds and stocks. Attica is back in action after going dark for the SCWC at Mansfield featuring the FAST 410 sprint cars and the first night of the Attica/Oakshade late model series. The FAST 305 sprint cars are also on the card at Attica for the FAST series opener. Raceway 7 opens their gates for racing the first time this year with crate late models as the headliner as well as some stock and modified divisions. A track that is re-opening after closing midway through last season is 250 speedway in the eastern edge of Ohio featuring a show of Mods, stocks, compacts, enduros and wedges (cutting 2 classes from last year). Hilltop speedway, legendary hilltop, and Moler all have a regular show on Friday night with the primary division being Late Models and Modifieds at each of the tracks. The recently reopened Jackson County Speedway in Jackson, OH has a regular show with the Modifieds as their headlining division.

    Saturday features a wide variety of interesting events including 5 sprint car races. Fremont has, in my opinion, the most attractive option of the weekend featuring 3 divisions of sprint cars. The FAST 410 sprints return to Fremont accompanied by the BOSS Non Wing sprints series opener. The FAST305 sprints vs NRA360 challenge is also on the card and you may see upwards of 80 cars in the pits. Sharon Speedway has the All Stars back for the first of 3 times this year on the back end of a swing featuring Lernerville on Friday. Wayne County has a regular show now dubbed the "Fast Four" with Sprints, Late Models, Stocks, and mini stocks. Atomic welcomes the OVSCA back after a few years of absence and also has the late models present as a co-headliner. The last of the open wheel shows features sprints of the non winged variety with an open tire rule for the weekend. Any driver that wins both Limaland on Friday and Waynesfield on Saturday for the non wing sprints will receive a $500 bonus.

    On the non sprint car side, Deerfield attempts to swing it's doors open again (Micros, jr sprints and the sort), and Oakshade raceway opens their season with the Attica/Oakshade Late Models and their usual support classes. Brushcreek opens their points racing season with their regular show. Midway is back in action with 6 divisions on the card, and 35 raceway rounds out the Saturday shows with a regular show. A lone race on Sunday is scheduled at Legendary Hilltop and features the enduro cars.

    A new segment I'm adding is the Border tracks in Ohio. There are a few tracks just over the border that also have some intriguing events and with the weather looking better a little bit of travel seems less risky now! Montpelier Motor Speedway welcomes back the Late Models on Saturday. A $4k to win American Ethanol Late Model Tour as well as Modifieds, stocks and compacts. To my knowledge, they haven't had Late Models at the 1/4 mile bullring in quite some time and should be interesting to see how many MI drivers come down who are following the series. Another interesting event is the All Stars first Western PA event at Lernerville Speedway Friday which is the first of two on the Eastern OH/Western PA border and should probably get a solid field of cars with some of the Western PA guys returning to home. The MSCS (Midwest Sprint Car Series) highlights a night at the newly reopened Gas City speedway with a $3k to win Non wing show on Friday night.

    I'm planning on a drive in movie with the Fiance and the dogs up in Liberty Center Friday Night, and the first trip to the Fremont on the year Saturday which I'll likely be riding solo too.

    Where do your plans have you headed this weekend? Plenty of options provided ya didn't spend all your money last weekend! Get dirty and have fun.

              Friday looking a little iffy in this area if you go to Hilltop.
              Saturday looking good for Wayne County.

              GT really liking the ability to look at your chart and see who is racing on what day. Thank you for the time and effort of making us a "race locator helper"

                  Saw Hilltop in Millersburg cancelled 6 hours ago. Was surprised as weather is nice around that area.

                      20 minutes from there and a storm now. Just had never seen them call off races so early before. It helps people get to other tracks.

                          I was kind of surprised attica didn't have that many fans last night. Was a great show and the racing was excellent in every division. Cap Henry would of won if there was one more caution late in the race in my opinion. He came charging through the field from 16th. One thing that kind of sucked was lernerville and the allstars not cancelling until 5pm-6pm. The radar looked horrible all day and cancelling seem inevitable but decided to drag all the teams there.

                            Atomic has cancelled for tonight. Brushcreek has postponed today's events til Sunday. Gates at 2 and hot laps at 3 down there.

                            I'll be at Fremont today riding solo. Look for the camo wright state hat and come up and holler at me if ya'd like.

                              Hope everyone had a goodtime at the races.
                              WCS was packed. Good sprint feature. Track was dusty during heats but decent at feature time. Late model feature competitive once they got past the initial cautions, red flag for person in pits to transport and resumed. Street stocks had good race going. Surprise in the mini stocks with over 40 of them.
                              14 heat races done by around 8:30. Only b mains were in mini stocks. They started all in other classes.
                              Very busy place but show was efficient when you took out ambulance run, 3 car fires and 1 or 2 flips.
                              Weather was comfortable. I figured with all the rain thru week they were cautious on watering.
