MEEKER, Okla. (March 14, 2017) - Race fans and competitors will get their first look at the all new Red Dirt Raceway when the track opens the gates for practice this Sunday, March 19.
Formerly known as Brill’s Motor Speedway, promoter Cody Brewer and family purchased the speedway over the winter and have been busy remodeling the facility from top to bottom.
Racers will find a new track configuration as the racing surface has been shortened to a quarter-mile by bringing in corners one and two. New backstretch fencing and surface grading will provide more pit area parking.
Fans will be pleasantly surprised to find new renovated grandstands and a fan friendly fun zone where they can watch racing from their cars or motorhomes.
Gates will open at noon on Sunday with practice getting underway at 2 p.m. and ending at 5. Practice will also be held the following Sunday, March 26, at the same time.
Pit passes on Sunday are $20 while grandstand admission is free. Grandstand concessions will also be available.
Every minor (under 18) coming into the pits will have to have a minor release form filled out, notarized, and on file at the track for admission to the pits. This will only have to be done the first time and then it will be good for the season. "Minor Release Forms" are available for download on the website under the rules/forms section at Red Dirt Raceway - Meeker, OK... Fast paced, family fun! Sprint Cars.
Driver Registration Form are available for download on the website under the rules/forms section as well. This also has tax info....THIS FORM MUST BE FILLED OUT AND ON FILE BY THE FIRST RACE. If you fill out the registration form ahead of time and bring to the track on Sunday you will save yourself time filling out paper work at the track and allow track personnel to get your information entered into the new computer system prior to our first race.
Red Dirt Raceway will be using a Westhold transponder system for scoring the races and Speedway Services software for lineups and point calculations.
Transponders (Westhold) are mandatory this year on race nights. You can get your own or we will have them for sale ($140) or rent ($20 per night).
