will celebrate the first day of summer this Friday, June

Another great racing program is offered on Friday June 28th. Rounding out
the month of June, Chemung will present the Sunoco

Bandoleros, and the dirt track Crate Sportsman Modifieds.
All track classes will race for double points on this night.
We will welcome the NYPA Midgets (TQ Midgets) for a great
night of racing. The Western NY based NYPA Midgets are
speedy open wheel cars that are well suited for the Chemung
track. Race Director John Veach brings in his experienced
team and promises great racing. Two weeks ago, NYPA Midgets
ran their first road trip to Lake Erie Speedway. Just over
20 TQ Midget teams make the tow. Owner John White stated
that there will be no increase in regular admission prices.
Adults are $12, seniors (65+) $10, kids 6-12 $5, and 5 and
under are always free.
