    2018 Atomic Speedway News/Results

    Atomic released their full schedule today! The ASCoC added an event at Atomic April 6th which will make a two day weekend with Attica (But also likely detract for the FAST series turnout for the 1st night if they do the typical two night event) but good to have more cars in OH racing. Lots of multi race weekends and a good variety of classes with no more than 4 competing regularly which is a good solid amount for weekly competition. Also, Brad McCown listened folks. After running a late event with 4 divisions on speedweek last year, he has cut down to two classes - the ASCoC and Sport Mods. Good job by Brad for listening to the fans. A comment on the post asked about OSCS and the response was an announcement would be made regarding that soon. With no OSCS listed on the schedule my assumption is no OSCS anymore which is honestly probably for the best. I won't complain about somebody trying to do something different though. What does everyone else think?

    Did anybody notice that Atomic went to an Open 305 rule and are no longer running under the IMCA Racesaver sanction? Wonder if any northwestern Ohioans will give it a go on an off weekend.

    Mother Nature picks up back to back wins on opening weekend! Cold on both days with freezing rain today.

    Early season race dates and some (not in recent years) late season race dates are always a crap shoot, BUT scheduling them CAN help make up for some of the rain dates IF the weather does cooperate. I agree that March is more risky than Sept. and Oct. in Ohio, but with some tracks shutting the gates early (end of Aug./start of Septemberish) and not running thru the Fall just makes no business sense to me? Then it seems like tracks wonder why they don't make money?

    Seems like early season cancellations vary by track. Some have a poor grade in the parking lots, as well as no gravel, so that can drive cancellations. Or, tracks with no tiles near the bottom of the track banking results in soupy conditions in the low groove and flooded infield’s, etc. The tracks which have stout infrastructure like Eldora rarely if ever cancel due to overly wet conditions. Just one of those things until the ground firms up. Unlike the past couple years, March 2018 has had some erratic weather in NW Ohio. Attica has the right idea with their early season rain dates. Not trying to stir this discussion up again, but that’s why I am not a fan of shutting down around Labor Day.

    Saw a farmer working the field near Gilboa on my way from work today.

    Could it be if the Farmers can get into the fields or not ? Yes we have had quite a lot of the wet stuff.

    Weather just varies from year to year. Not too many years ago Attica had an SRO crowd for a late March event with temps near 80 degrees. Just watching the weather on TV and they said most of Ohio has had twice as much precip this winter vs. 2016-2017. Some years it works, some years not.

    The Buckeye Spring 50 is rescheduled for April 13th. This is why Ohio tracks do not schedule to start in Mid-March.

    The 3 1/2 hour drive each way negates my going these days. Used to really enjoy the night the stars came out of the late models and sprints.

    The same for me. I was there last year for the Lucas Oil LM race and I enjoyed the evening. A 3 hour drive but it was well worth the trip.
