Opening Day Postponed to Sunday April 7th

April 4th, 2019

With rain forecasted to come through the area all day Friday, speedway officials have made the decision to postpone the 2019 Opening Day two days, back to Sunday April 7th. Current weather models have Friday projected to be a complete washout, so an early decision has been made in the best interests of our fans and racers. With a wet and cold Friday preventing racing from taking place, a Sunday raindate offers the best opportunity to go racing this weekend in Bedford. 

Sunday April 7th will feature a busy day at the track, with our annual race car show going on from Noon- 3PM as part of the Bedford County Home Show at the Fairgrounds. All drivers and fans are invited to come out early to partake in the Home Show as well as the car show.

Following the car show on the fairgrounds lower midway area near the main gate action will move to the speedway. 

Track gates will open at 4 PM, with warmups scheduled for 6 PM and racing at 6:30 PM. 

Thank you for your support and we are looking forward to a great 2019 racing season!
