Recent News From the Desk of
Promoter Jon McCorkell:
5-23-2013 This Saturday Nights
Races (May 25th) are Cancelled
I know some area tracks are ready to
go racing, ours is not. Despite the crews
eagerness to continue work on the track, Until today
we have not been on it since last Thursday, due to
wet conditions. So with where our track condition
currently sits, and with the forecast for the
weekend, I think its the best alternative to wait
another week to open.
Hopefully by letting everyone know
early, everyone can make alternative plans whether
they be racing or just spending time with family.
With any luck we hopefully can get some progress on
the track today and tomorrow and hopefully this
Dismal Forecast is wrong too, so we can work on
it through the weekend!
So here is what I am currently
thinking: Of course it all depends on the weather.
But, I would really like to have a test and tune
some Night Next Week. Tuesday would be the
best, but with the forecast that is unlikely, so we
will keep you posted on our progress. We would look
at anyone of these three nights Tuesday, Wednesday
Also the Micro Track will not be
running on June 1st. The reason is we are
expecting a large count of cars in our other
divisions. We have combined the Red Line Racing
North Star Touring Series (Including the 1st of our
5 Race Bob Boland Ford A Mod Series) and the
Dominick Bruns Memorial for the Stock Cars.
So Saturday June 8th will be our
first night with the Micro Sprints.
We had the Show Car out at the Duck
Unlimited Green Wing Day in Trimont on Saturday

We were not able to get any track
work or track projects done this weekend.
Frustrating! Hopefully we can get some good
weather this week, because with all the rain we have
gotten the Race Track certainly needs a lot of work.
Since we could not work at the track
we took the Jackson Speedway Show Car out to the
Greenwing Ducks Unlimited day at the Trimont
Elementary School. I will post some pictures
tomorrow. Lot of Kids over there and it was
sure a fun event!

Our 4th Annual Dominick Bruns
Memorial is fast approaching, Saturday June 1st!
Be sure to check out their
and like their
Facebook Page. This year we have combined
the Bruns Memorial with our 1st Northstar Touring
Series Race. This looks to be a HUGE weekend
with having these two great promotions together. We
are honored to be a part of the Bruns Memorial
Series and hopefully we can have another awesome

2013 Sprint Car Purses (Click here for More Info):
Apparently there was some confusion
on the Weekly Sprint Car Purses. We had talked
about doing a tiered purse based on Car count at
last years banquet. I had posted how that
would work on the web-site, But most teams wanted to
keep it the same, so that is what we are doing.
