FAMILY AUTOGRAPH NIGHT HEADLINES AN ALREADY EXCITING SHOW THIS SUNDAY AT UTICA-ROME SPEEDWAY
VERNON, NY-After hosting a midweek show this past Wednesday, Utica-Rome Speedway is ready to get right back to action this Sunday for another round of exciting NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing. The June 28 program will be presented by Bill Herrig’s Auto Parts and Mirabito Fuel Group and will feature a full program of Stampede Steakhouse Modifieds, 602 Sportsman, Open Sportsman, and Pro Street Stocks plus the popular Family Autograph Night.
With several of the top Modified teams not going to be in attendance this Sunday due to a Super DIRTcar Series event elsewhere and an open draw format being used instead of the weekly handicapping, interest is high from several non-regulars to show up and compete for the win in the Stampede Steakhouse Modified division this Sunday. The event will carry a full weekly purse which is $2,000 to win and $150 to start. With the heat draw and feature redraw format, it will be anybody’s race to win and a new winner should find victory lane on Sunday with the series not in attendance. No track points will be given, however NASCAR points will be awarded and NASCAR license will be required. Temporary licenses are available.
Also on tap will be a full program of 602 Sportsman, Open Sportsman, and Pro Street Stocks.
If weather permits, during the intermission period of Sunday’s program, all the cars and stars of the Utica-Rome Speedway will be brought out on to the front stretch of the speedway. Fans will be allowed on to the track to meet their favorite drivers and collect autographs of the drivers that put on an exciting show every Sunday. This event is always a hit for fans of all ages.
Gates will open at 3:30 p.m. with racing starting at 6 p.m. Admission is $13 for adults with senior, military, and student admission at $10. Kids 16 and under are free.
