We’re Back: BD Motorsports Media LLC Returns to Utica-Rome in 2024 & Beyond
VERNON, NY – We’re back.
BD Motorsports Media LLC will return to promote Utica-Rome Speedway in 2024 and beyond. Racing will take place on Friday nights with Modifieds, Crate 602 Sportsman, Limited Sportsman, Pro Stock and Four Cylinders weekly. The inner oval will again be utilized for bi-weekly Friday night Allstar and Junior Slingshot racing. Special events will be added throughout the season.
Additionally, there will be select Wednesday night go-kart and Slingshot programs during the summer months on the inner oval.
“We are looking forward to continuing the growth from the past three years,” BD Motorsports Media LLC owner Brett Deyo said. “Utica-Rome Speedway has attracted some of the most talented fields and produced some of the best racing in the Northeast on Friday nights.
“We can’t wait to carry on the history and tradition of Utica-Rome into the future.”
No significant rule changes are expected for 2024. Modified, Crate 602 Sportsman and Limited Sportsman will remain on the following American Racer compounds: 48 (right-rear), 44 (left-rear), 38 (right-front) and any American Racer tire (left-front). Pro Stocks will compete on American Racer 50 compound tires exclusively after an early-season burn-off of existing inventory.
Open practice is tentatively scheduled for April 12 with a Season Opener date of April 19. Keep posted for further schedule announcements.
BD Motorsports Media LLC has promoted the Route 5 half-mile oval since the ’21 campaign.
Information regarding point fund distribution from the 2023 season will be distributed in the coming weeks.
