It’s been far too long since the dirt oval track at Castrol Raceway had cars on it. This Saturday June 5th will be the first time Allwest Powersports, the new promoter of the dirt oval, will be hosting a test and tune.
Gates open at 2 PM for all classes. The event will end at 5 PM. New this year, 𝗔𝗱𝘃𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗢𝗻𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗥𝗲𝗴𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 is 𝗠𝗔𝗡𝗗𝗔𝗧𝗢𝗥𝗬 – Click HERE for Showpass Link
We all wish for Castrol to stay in the good graces of AHS, in order to do so mandated rules must be followed. Reading a bunch of rules is not fun but being without racing is much less fun.
If the “re-opening plan” moves along without setbacks, the scheduled Friday June 25th and Saturday June 26th Nite Thunder events will be locked in with possibly 1/3 capacity for the main grandstands and 1/3 capacity for the oval pit grandstands.
