Have a Safe Memorial Day Weekend


May 16, 2015

Well as we got the races underway it showed the only race wasn’t only going to be the one on the track but the one against Mother Nature. The heat race was proving to be another action pack night with a lot of action packed racing. But as the heat races were coming to an end and our hopes were we would get the whole night in Mother Nature said different and the skies opened up. Despite the tries of our track crew she just proved that she would be the one winning today. We would like to thank everyone that came out and can’t wait to see you on our next schedule race event on May 30, 2015 as we will be closed for this week and we hope you have a nice holiday.

AIRPORT SPEEDWAY LIVE

PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

Race fans!!!

Welcome to a new season at AIRPORT SPEEDWAY!!!  With that being said, we need your help this year to make AIRPORT SPEEDWAY LIVE a complete success. I need every Driver, Pit crew, Family members and Fans to let everyone know WHO, WHAT, WHEN and WHERE we are and if they can’t make it to the track they can still watch LIVE online at www.ustream.tv search "Airport Speedway Live" or go to www.airportspeedway.com and in the menu click on Airport Speedway Live.

There are some new additions to the live feed this year. We are running 3 cameras on the track.

The first camera is on the flaggers stand watching one of the best flaggers in the northeast region along with turns 3 & 4 and the finish line.

The second camera is at the track entrance watching turns 1 & 2 along with cars entering the track and staging.

The 3rd camera will have the entire track in view to see the whole scene!

And during some of the features we will also be adding a remote camera for in car footage for up close and live footage of drivers during the race.

Keep in mind you can watch all of this while in the pits as well. So spread the word because we are in for one heck of a season.

Here is to a great season and look forward to seeing all you race fans out there.
