Atomic Speedway to begin season

By Staff | Mar 19, 2014

After a frigid winter, the high-banks of Atomic Speedway are about to heat-up once again with an early-season start on Saturday, March 22.

Early start times that show racing at 4 p.m. will kick off the race card of 410 Sprints, Late Models, Modifieds, and Sport Mods.

Gates open at 2 p.m. with hot laps at 4 p.m. Owner/promoter Brad McCown has waived the track registration fee, however, drivers should print off the sheet and fill it out prior to Saturday’s racing to save time signing in.

General Admission is $12 for adults, kids 12 and-under-free, $30 pits and $15 Pit Pass for children 12-and-under.

The top five payout in the sprints is $2,000 to win, $1,000, $800, $600, $500, $450, $250 for 10th and $200 to start. Late Models are $1500 to win, $900, $750, $600, $500, $200 for tenth and $175 to start. Modifieds pay $750 to win and $120 to start.

Several divisional sponsors have come on board at Atomic this season. Atomic Speedway welcomes these sponsors, who have stepped to the plate to make each division even better. Pine Tree Towing and Recovery has signed on as the sponsor of the 410 Sprint Cars, Gullion Enterprises LLC has become the official sponsor of the AMRA Atomic Late Models, Advanced Services continues as the Modifieds sponsor, and C-M Racing Equipment has taken on the name role of the Sport Mods. Hummel’s Factory Kahne Shocks from Indianapolis will be the 2014 Sprint Car HARD CHARGER sponsor.

Atomic Speedway has signed a Hoosier Tire deal which means, “Hoosier Tires in all classes!” All Star tire rules will apply for Sprints Cars, Late Models must run a 1300 or harder compound, the AMRA tire rules apply for Modifieds, and Street Stocks and Sport Mods have until June 1 to burn off tires other than Hoosier. All Street Stocks and Sport Mods must run Hoosier tires after June 1. NO BURN OFF for other divisions-Hoosier Only!

Several advertising and sponsorship opportunities are available– from class sponsors to billboard sponsors– and many other ideas for advertising your business in front of several thousand people over the next year are available.
