Auto City Speedway to Kick Off 60th Year on Saturday

sesason-opener

Clio’s Auto City Speedway has big plans for its 60th year, and it all starts this Saturday – weather permitting – with the Redneck Season Opener.

“It’s a full schedule,” said Sharon Fischer, a spokesperson for the 5,000-seat venue. “All five divisions will be in action this weekend.”

This includes Pro Late Models, Mods, Street Outlaws (Street Stocks, Sportsman, Factory Stocks), Pure Stocks and Figure-8s.

This year, the season will carry the theme of a “Redneck Racing Summer.” In June, the racetrack is teaming up with Cumulus Radio to host a Redneck wedding. There will also be a number of games, featuring a redneck twist, during intermissions throughout the summer.

“If you have never been to a racetrack before, it’s definitely something you should try,” said Fischer, who describes the setup as NASCAR-style racing on an oval track. “You have to be there to experience the whole thing. To smell the gasoline and hear the noise – it’s very exciting.”

With a few exceptions, the paved track will host racing every Saturday night through September, with a special anniversary race on August 1.

After each and every event at the speedway, the pit area is open to guests who would like to meet the drivers, take photos and secure autographs.

Grandstand admission is $15 per adult and $5 per child age 6-12. Pit passes are $25 per adult and $15 per child age 6-12. Children 5 and under are free.

Pit gates will open at noon and the main grandstand gate open at 4:30 p.m. Racing starts at 7 p.m. and usually runs until about 10 p.m.-11 p.m.
