Happy New Year Everyone. I know I have been pretty quiet since the 2016 season ended. The tragic loss of our friend Michael Niebrzydowski the last night of the season was personally very devastating to me. May he forever Rest in Peace!!! I have come to the realization that unfortunately incidents like this and others happen in this sport of racing that we all love. I also realize its time to wipe away the tears, pick up the pieces and continue on for all our loyal patriots and racers. I know Mike and his family would want Owosso Speedway to continue racing long into the future!
That’s exactly what the Owosso Speedway Family is going to do!! So with that said, I have begun to work on the 2017 Season. We will be releasing a full schedule of racing events very similar to last year. I do not anticipate any rule changes with our four regular classes. The exact tire we will be using will be determined soon. We made some nice facility improvements last year, and will continue to do so in 2017. The racing surface is our first priority. We are going to re-address the repairs made in turn two, and continue to do more repairs throughout the racing surface.
We still may have a small drivers award ceremony in February. Stay tuned for more information on that.
I will continue to move forward to prepare a fun and exciting season of racing at the Big O for 2017. Thank you to all our sponsors, staff, racers, and fans for your loyal support. I look forward to having fun with you all this coming racing season.
