Speedway returns to the Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports Racecar and Trade
Show for 2015 after a several year absence.
What is new at Airport Speedway in New Castle Delaware?
Well, there is a lot new going on with the Speedway this year.
The biggest announcement is for the young quarter midget and kart
drivers who want to step up into the world of Micro Sprint racing.
A new junior 125cc CR Honda class has been added this year.
If you are a young racer between the ages of 10 and 15 with two years
of organized racing experience, then you can now step up to race a 125cc
Micro Sprint. The track is
responding to the many requests that young drivers are having a tough time
in the tri-state area finding a venue to challenge them once they have
mastered quarter midget or kart racing.
Well, the track management has responded with this new class.
This class is set up to help the families of quarter midgets and
karts move on to an affordable next step in racing.
By changing the class from the RS 125cc Honda to the CR 125cc Honda
motor platform, the class will be much more affordable to the racer on a
budget. The 2015 class will be a
combination of RS and CR Honda 125cc engines as the club transitions to the
125cc CR platform for the 2016 season. The
club hopes to attract these young superstars in little cars to a bigger and
more affordable way to move up in their quest for racing fame.
addition to changes made at the entry level 125cc class, Airport Speedway
has also stepped-up and added a Winged 600 CC Micro Sprint class in addition
to its Wingless 600 Micro Sprint class to its Saturday night event schedule.
The spectators will be able to see 5 classes of racing in a single
evening. Look for more thrills
and spills every Saturday night as the drivers of the new 125cc, 250cc Stock
class, 270 cc open class and 600cc Winged and Wingless class compete on one
of the most challenging short tracks in the region.
By adding the 600cc winged event, Airport Speedway now provides an
opportunity to racers of winged cars to come and compete on a regular basis.
is going to be and exciting year at Airport Speedway in New Castle Delaware.
The track is located just 5 minutes from the Delaware Memorial
Bridge. The track surface is currently undergoing upgrades to provide one of
the best dirt racing experiences in the Tri-State Area.
