Utica-Rome Speedway Inks Weekly NASCAR Sanction
By MIKE MALLETT
VERNON, N.Y. - An already busy offseason for the Utica-Rome Speedway got even busier this past week as speedway management was able to reach an agreement to become a weekly NASCAR sanctioned facility. For the first time since 1998, the speedway will fall under the NASCAR.
It is a return to roots so to speak for the speedway as from its inception until the late 90’s the speedway was traditionally sanctioned by NASCAR. Weekly racing sanctioned by NASCAR began on September 10, 1961 with Bill Rafter winning the first event at the speedway under the direction of Joe Lesik with Rene Charland capturing the speedway’s first of two consecutive NASCAR Sportsman titles. Other track champions in the early days included Lou Lazzaro, Ed Flemke and Billy Wimble with the first NASCAR Modified Utica-Rome Speedway title going to Pete Corey in 1965. All of this was just the beginning of the NASCAR relationship with Utica-Rome Speedway. Read More....

COUNTDOWN TO SEASON OPENER
UTICA-ROME SPEEDWAY TO HAVE STRONG PRESENCE AT MOTORPSORTS EXPO, INFORMATIONAL MEETING SET UP FOR SATURDAY
VERNON, NY-The Motorsports Expo, held annually at the New York State Fairgrounds, is just days away and again Utica-Rome Speedway will again have a strong presence at the preseason gathering. This year’s version, the 28th overall, will be held on Saturday March 8 and Sunday March 9 in the Center of Progress building.
Every year this is the first chance for fans in the Central New York region to see some of the cars that will be competing at their weekly tracks as well as picking up schedule cards from the various tracks in attendance. It will be no different in the Utica-Rome Speedway booth as fans will be able to obtain information on the rapidly approaching season such as the 2014 schedule and information on the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series that the Vernon oval will be a part of on a weekly basis.
The Utica-Rome Speedway Modified 2013 track champion Stewart Friesen is expected to have his car on display, fresh off a win and the overall DIRTcar National Modified title at Volusia Speedway in Florida. Also on hand will be the Sportsman rides of Mike Walton and Kyle Kiehn as well as the 360 Sprint of Jason Barney, who’s car will be displaying the logo of this year’s Cole Cup. Several other competitors will also have their cars on display throughout the expansive building.
With a lot of questions concerning Utica-Rome Speedway’s partnership with NASCAR and the Whelen All-American Series, a special session has been set up for Saturday of the show. Track officials will do their best to answer any question competitors may have and NASCAR licenses will be on sale so competitors will have an opportunity to avoid any lines on opening day. The meeting will take place in one of the rooms of the building and will start at 3 p.m.
Show hours are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. More information on the show can be found at www.gaternews.com or by calling (315)457-0175.
We are set up in the Motorsports Expo at the NYS Fairgrounds. We will be there all weekend to hand out the 2014 schedule and answer questions. Remember that there will be an informational meeting at 3 p.m.
