April 23, 2011 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Hartford, OH)…As of 11 a.m. this morning, all systems are a go for racing action tonight (Saturday, April 23) at Sharon Speedway! The second installment of “Steel Valley Thunder” will take the green flag tonight at 7 p.m. featuring the Governor Insurance Agency Big-Block Modifieds, Barris Supply FASTRAK Late Models, Ainsley 500 Heating & Cooling E-Mods, Gibson Agency Stock Cars, and the Presidential Lawn Care Mini Stocks. Barris Supply is also tonight’s presenting sponsor.
After the snowiest winter on record and several weeks of unrelenting rains that have left the main grandstand parking area very wet, Sharon Speedway has announced a parking procedure for grandstand attendees tonight. Fans will enter the facility from the East gate, which is located behind the backstretch grandstands; from there, cars will be directed to park on the asphalt of the old speedway on the outside of turns three and four.
Pit gates open at 4 with grandstands at 5 and racing at 7. Adult admission is $13, while students 9-13 are $5, and children eight and under are free. Family passes are $32. Pit passes are $25. It’s Crawford County School Night. No rain date of Sunday will be utilized because of Easter.
Sharon Speedway is owned by the Blaney, Weller, and Kirila Families and is a 3/8-mile dirt track located on Custer-Orangeville Road in Hartford, Ohio near the intersection of Routes 7 & 305.
