Default 4-17 Speedway progress

It's so good to see another Florida short track coming back from oblivion. The facebook site for the NEW 4-17 Speedway has some photos and comments posted that show the enormous amount of work to be done, and the work that's already being done. They have a great group of volunteers helping with the cleanup.

Lightbulb When is the Grand Opening???

When is the Grand Opening??? Looking at the Track Wars there are divisions racing on top of each other each weekend all the way through November (one weekend Pro Trucks are racing at 3 Tracks within a 90 minute drive). Making it hard to plan where to go!!! Please look at all the schedules from the other Tracks. Good Luck.

At least that was the only thing I could figure unless it was his lucky lottery numbers. When are you and Sean bringing the latemodel back out?

Default Amen to that brother

My mom and dad carried me in that place and the old long gone Powell Speedway when I was an infant. Hard to believe 70 years of racing gets bulldozed under come October for a practice soccer field. At least a few old places have gotten revived lately both up there and down here.
Hope to catch you guys at Desoto.

Hopefully they don't follow the 3 Plams model: 4 cars in 17 different classes

Talked to Joe today, and he's going full bore. The infield kart track is finished, they're buying and installing grandstands as fast as possible, and they have developed an innovative rules package. Joe and Janet have some very good plans for the track, and they are still planning a November opening.

Default Does anyone have any info

On the progress of the reopening of the place? With mid October approaching I was wondering if a November opening was still in the plans?

They're still working away. Right now, they aren't positive about the opening date due to the usual construction and supplier delays. Still hard to believe how much work ( and money ) it's going to take to get 4-17 Southern Speedway up and running, but Joe and Janet are up to the challenge. I know they're wanting to take the time to do things right, not just slap things together for a quick opening.

Default Innovative Rules Package?

Can you expand on what that means? Hopefully they are going to be the same as what they are now at other tracks here in Florida? Already enough issues with the tire wars going on.

Don't need an innovative rules package, just need to take rules from other tracks and get car counts and fans in the stands for now. "K.I.S.S" Keep It Simple Stupid...
