Meet the Drivers slated for Saturday

Staff Writer

Race fans have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the weekend warriors Saturday night at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield.

The first “Meet the Drivers” night of the 2016 season will feature a guest appearance from the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders. Saturday’s visit for the NRA Sprints will be the first outside of their home track due to rains that have washed away much of the early season.  The Satellite Connections Non Wing Sprints, Performance Powder Coating AMSA Mini Sprints, Block Insurance Tough Trucks, and the Indian Lake Outfitter Compacts also join the program.

Saturday’s full program of racing is presented by the Howard Johnson Inn of Lima, offering racers a great place to stay at a discounted rate.

Adult general admission is just $12, kids 11-15 years of age are admitted for just $6, and everyone under the age of 10 is admitted for free. Pit admission is $25.

Pit gates open at 4 p.m.; grandstands at 5 p.m. Hot laps and get underway at 6 p.m. with racing action scheduled to get underway at 7:30 p.m.
