Something for everyone on 81 Speedway schedule

Something for everyone on 81 Speedway schedule
Tad Davis is the defending USRA Modified track champion.

With the release of the 2023 schedule for 81 Speedway, you’d be hard pressed to find a dirt race fan who can’t find something they like coming to the 3/8-mile oval in Park City, Kansas.

Diversity was key in driving this year’s schedule of events built by track promoter John Allen and the FOE Enterprises crew. National and regional tours pepper the schedule all season long, while the traditional weekly racing series will see a revamped look as well.

“Robust is the first word that comes to mind when looking over the schedule for next year,” commented J.R. Sartain. “We really tried to shake things up, and keep in mind that we are an entertainment business first. I believe our schedule is about as diverse as it gets in dirt track racing.”

“Next season is really going to be something special,” claimed Allen. “We’re working on more concession and restroom options to accommodate the crowds for the bigger shows, but we’ll get it done and I’m really excited for 2023.”

The Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series returns to 81 Speedway in 2023 with all divisions see 11-13 races on the schedule.

“As far a scheduling goes, we really felt the need for change for a few different reasons. Weekly racing divisions and drivers are no doubt the lifeblood of 81 Speedway, and we acknowledge it’s getting harder for local racers to make 15-20 shows per year. The economy right now is tough, and we all have family activities and other interests we like to participate in too. This schedule gives our teams that opportunity while also giving them a breather at times so they can regroup and keep at it. We want to see more drivers able to make every show and fight for a championship at season’s end,” said Sartain. “Another advantage it gives us is to continue focusing on ending shows in a timely manner. Rather than five or six divisions every night, most nights we will run four with a few exceptions. That’s not just a benefit to the racers and employees, but more importantly our fans.”
