CARIBOU, Maine — Spud Speedway shifts into high gear when its 50th auto racing season opens at 7 p.m. Saturday.
“I am excited to celebrate 50 years of stock car racing here at Spud Speedway,” track owner Troy Haney said in a news release. “The rich heritage of this track will be on display all summer long with many events that will appeal to the family. We want to be the family friendly place to be in Aroostook County.
“We have made visual changes to the track and to our schedule to help make that a real possibility. Our Saturday night schedule lends itself to the ‘Saturday Night at the Races’ tradition in stock car racing,” Haney added.
Included in the 13-race event weekly schedule will be Spud Speedway’s first motorsports fair July 10-13.
Admission to the weekly races is $5.
Maine Vintage Racing’s newest Hall of Fame inductees Rodney “Chink” Maynard and Bobby Alexander will be honored at Spud Speedway’s 100-lap Outlaw race on July 12.
