The Bloomfield Speedway has had two rainouts already this year and are looking to kick off their season this Saturday night. Chris and Cindy Eggers who are TTM Marketing, ran the races at Bloomfield last year and after the season was complete, they signed a three-year agreement to promote the races at Bloomfield. The weekly classes on the racing card include Sport Modifieds, Stock Cars, Hobby Stocks and Sport Compacts with IMCA rules but are not IMCA sanctioned.
Other classes of cars that will be racing this year include the 305 Sprint Cars, 360 Sprint Invaders, Modifieds, Mod Lites, Vintage Sprints and Vintage Stock Cars. A couple of special dates on the schedule include July 13 during the Davis County Fair where the weekly classes will be racing along with the Vintage Stock Cars and Modifieds and August 16 with the Open Wheel Friday where the 360 Sprint Invaders join the weekly classes in competition.
The Knoxville Raceway tried to have their opening night this past Saturday night but that night of action was scrapped and they will try to open up the season this Saturday night. More than 270,000 Sprint Car fans will pack the track in 2013 with the 410, 360 and 305 Sprint Cars racing for track championships. Several other types of race cars and motorcycles will be in competition throughout the season. Brian Stickel takes over the reins as the General Manager for the Sprint Car Capitol of the World and their schedule is loaded with special events.
