What is new for 2016?
Over the winter we purchased a new 3500 gallon water truck, and while it will most likely not be ready for the first race, it will be ready for the June 4th event. The drag truck has also been outfitted with a 350 gallon water tank which will be used when the track needs a light mist. Both trucks will reduce the amount of time spent watering and will allow us to run our events even more efficient than we have in the past.
Our new on-line and mobile friendly scoring program is nearly finished and it will allow riders and spectators to get live updates regarding race lineups and results. Top three results from each race will also go out on our Twitter feed, so be sure to follow us at @MidAmSpeedway. We are also working to add a feature where a rider can view his main event finish position and corresponding payout from his phone rather than waiting in line at the payout window. For those of you without smart phones, rest assured that we will still have the printed forms that we have always posted.
Finally, we will be offering reserved pit parking for the 2016 season. Vans and trucks with small trailers will be parked with their front bumpers facing the fence that runs between the pit entrance and the hill (rear of vehicle would be facing turn 3 and 4 wall. Longer vehicles would park on the other side of the fence facing the vans and trucks with small trailers. Cost is $100 for the season and includes a sign with your name and number in your choice of red, green, black or blue identifying your reserved spot. Please contact us to reserve your spot today.
2016 Mid-America Speedway News
The 2016 Flat track season at Mid-America will be kicking off in a little over a week on April 30th. With the unpredictable weather in Indiana, the rain date will be the following Saturday on May 7th. We have been working on the track for the last several weeks and we promise that it will be in top shape on race day.
The season is scheduled to kick off on April 30th with our annual spring opener. We then take a little over a month off before our next event which we consider our true season opener on June 4th. Just like in years past, there will be a $100 bonus to the winning bike owner of the 80-200 class. June 18th is our 10th Annual Fair Race. Had we not promoted this event in 2007, flat track would not exist at the Marion County Fairgrounds. After the fair, we take almost a month off and return on July 16th where the winner of the 50+/Super Senior class will take home a $100 bonus. July 30th is a regular points night, and then we have a double header on on Friday, August 12th and Saturday the 13th which is rounds 11 and 12 of the AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Series. Saturday, August 13th is also round 2 of the FIM sanctioned USA vs. Canada Speedway Series. (Round one will be in Welland, ON on July 9th.) Next on the schedule is our August 20th event, followed by our Vet 30+ Night on August 27th. September 10th is the next date on the schedule followed by Vintage Heavy Night on September 17th, and a regular points nights on September 24th. October 8th will pay $500 to win the 250 money class. October 22nd is a regular points night, and our 7th annual Halloween race will be on October 29th with $500 going to the winner of the Open Class. Our awards banquet will be on 11/12 at the Sunshine Bowling Center in Clermont, IN. There will also be a free practice starting at 11:00am on the 12th so riders can ride one more time before the weather turns cold.
