Virginia Speedway drops specialty races

With the current economic climate and the uncertainty of the upcoming year, Virginia Motor Speedway track owner Bill Sawyer has decided to place the Commonwealth 100 and USA 100 on hold.

The speedway will focus on its weekly racing for the 2013 season and re-evaluate the running of the two special events at the end of next season.


"This is purely a business decision," Sawyer said. "With the current economic climate, I felt we are best served by focusing on our weekly racing program, our weekly competitors and our local fan base."

The staff is at work putting the 2013 schedule together and should have it released in the coming weeks, when it will be posted on the track’s website, he said.

Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway, a half-mile dirt oval track, is located on Route 17, eight miles north of Saluda. For more information, call the track at 758-1VMS.
