  • 2015 Mansfield Motor Speedway Season Thread

    Racing returning to Mansfield: It took Kevin Ruic five years, but the longtime motor sports showman will finally promote events at Mansfield Motorsports Park. Racing will return to the half-mile oval in 2015. The Avon Lake businessman said he reached a deal in principal with MMP owner Grant Milliron to bring up to six special events to track. Attempts to reach Milliron were unsuccessful. The nature of those events is still to be determined, but Ruic said a three-day tractor pull, a monster truck and thrill show, a supermodified and sprint car event, a July 4 fireworks show and a rodeo could be possible for 2015. Bringing in major events such as NASCAR or ARCA are not in the plans.(full story at the Mansfield News Journal), Mansfield Motorsports Park held five Camping World Truck Series one each season from 2004-2008.(9-29-2014)

      Well they better dig it up and repave it then because the last time I was out there for a sprint and super modified race, cars literally bounced down the straights and chunks of asphalt came up in turn 3. Needs a lot of work

          Put dirt back on it and make it a real racetrack again.

                      I like the Sunday afternoon racing. Will not conflict with other tracks.

                            I'll go to the Auto Value Sprints event, but I hope they can bring more than 15-17 cars or it will be a LOSER. This is a very nice facility and I hope they can make a " Go " of it.

                              Always liked going there as a kid ... loved the racing there on dirt. Haven't been there in a very long time and watched the truck races there when on TV.
