(2012 New Start Time)
(OSHKOSH, WI) March 26 – The Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway's management team have decided to move the starting time to 7:00 pm.
With all the construction going on and drivers traveling we felt it was vital to the Speedzone's success to move the start time to 7:00 pm said Competition Director Bernie Baye, The late cut off was at 6:00 pm which we will move to 6:15 pm. This should give drivers more time to travel as well as the fans. By starting at a later time will also give us more time to get prepared in the pit area as well as the track.
Race promoter Larry Stratton said that when we have the Kids Ride along we will start the ride along at 6:15 and go to 6:45 pm. The kids ride alongs are scheduled May 25 when the Bennett Family Insurance will sponsor the night with many give aways for the kids. The other night is scheduled for August 17. Promoter Jeff Lemiesz said that the Kids Ride along are one of the nights the drivers look forward to all season, It is great to see all the kids smiling said driver Charlie Ewald.
