New Era for Elk City Dirt Track Racing Starts This Saturday Night!

FOR IMMEDAITE RELEASE - Midwest City, Oklahoma – April 16, 2012 - A new era of racing begins this coming Saturday night for racers and race fans in and around the Elk City, Oklahoma area as Elk City Speedway kicks off their 2012 race season under new promotion from Triple B Oil Field Services owners Calvin Bonner and Kenneth Bonner, Jr.

After suffering through one of the worst years of the tracks history last year as well as three different stints of promoters in three years, the Bonner's hope to make Elk City Speedway what it should be, the premier dirt track racing facility to attend in Western, Oklahoma.

A lot of work was done over the winter months to improve the track, still one of the nicest facilities in the state. Among the changes include a new entrance into the facility and pit entrance, enlarged pit area, new area for the scales, new bleachers, LED lights for the scoreboard, fencing from the pit area to the race track to keep drivers from re-entering the race track after going pit side during the races and much more.

"This will be the biggest year of dirt track racing in Elk City in both this track and the previous tracks history," said one long time race fan, who goes out to the track on a daily basis. "People will be impressed with all the changes."

Also a novelty for the racers, they will be paid in cash at the end of the race night.

It is also being reported that former State Fair Speedway in Oklahoma City announcer Ben Buckland will do the announcing on this opening night, which features the modified, limited modified, factory stock, super stock, bombers and funn stocks divisions.

Modified drivers will compete for $600 to win while limited modified drivers compete for $400 to win. Super stock feature pays $275 to win, factory stocks $250 to win and bombers $200 to win. The funn stock feature winner will receive a trophy and free admission to the track the following week.

Several out of town drivers have indicated their intentions of competing. They include Amarillo, Texas drivers Gene Weaver, Jeremy Gossett, Dee Gossett and Logan Cabbell and well as Lawton drivers Jason Hilliard and Chris Cole. All to do battle with the local Elk City racers, many who are either building or rebuilding their race cars with much anticipation for a new era of dirt track racing in Elk City.

It all kicks off on Friday night with a car show at the track and play day beginning at 6:00 pm.

Gates on race day Saturday open at 5:00 pm with the first green flag waving at 8:00 pm.

For more race information including ticket prices, pay scale for all divisions, 2012 schedules and more go to www.elkcitydirttrack.com or call the speedway (580) 799-2306.

To get to Elk City Speedway, exit off of I-40 at Merrit Road (exit 34), go half mile North then half mile West. The track entrance is located on the South side of the road.
