Changes Coming for the 2021 Season at Mountain Creek Speedway
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
After a busy 2020 season, in the midst of a pandemic, a more user-friendly and patron-friendly Mountain Creek Speedway is coming in 2021.
Promoters, Adam and Rebecca Stewart, along with the staff at Mountain Creek Speedway are already hard at work with new track and facility improvements including a larger pit area, a newer and larger victory lane, scoring tower, handicapped parking and bathroom facilities to improve the experience of a night of racing at the track by the creek.
“We would like to make Mountain Creek Speedway one of the premiere dirt short tracks in the area that people look forward to coming to,” said owner and promoter Adam Stewart. “We’re looking forward to 2021 and working with other tracks in the area. After the success of the DIA-EDGE Shootout we would like to chat with places like Millbridge Speedway and 304 Speedway about possibly doing more special events in the future. We’re all just trying to make this whole thing better”, said Stewart.
Along with improvements around the track, there will also be improvements to the 1/6th mile facility. Increased progressive banking is starting to be worked into the surface while the track is being widened to provide competitors with more multi-groove racing. The walls around Mountain Creek Speedway are also being reinforced with welded steel plates and heavy duty fencing to eventually surround the speedway. “I think moving victory lane will help our flow of traffic on the grid next year. Karts can roll out onto the track now without waiting for the previous race to come off”, said Stewart.
The final race of the 2020 calendar year will be the Santa Showdown this Saturday night, December 19th. Santa Claus is scheduled to be here for the kids and take pictures with the winners in victory lane. It will also be race #3 for the 2020/2021 Winter Series at Mountain Creek Speedway. As a special bonus there will be $200 to win for the Open Outlaw Kart division no matter of car count, $100 to the winner for any classes over 10 karts, $200 to win for any classes over 20 karts. Gates open at 12noon, Saturday with practice beginning at 3pm. Entry fee is $35 for Adult classes and $20 for junior classes. Pit passes are just $10 for ages 13 and up, $5 for ages 6-12, under 5 are FREE.
