RoC Weekend is ON at Chemung Speedrome!


The forecast trends continue to look much better for the 65th Sunoco Race of Champions this Saturday and Sunday at the Chemung Speedrome. We are fully expecting to race this Saturday and Sunday.


The latest weather models are indicating that the potential coastal storm threat has not only slowed it’s trek north but appears to be going out to sea. Both scenarios should prove to provide us with cool but dry weather all weekend.


We will continually update any status changes if the need arises but we are planning on racing.


We did have to cancel the Chicken BBQ that was scheduled for Friday evening. This is the only schedule change. The caterer needed a firm commitment from us on Tuesday morning and with the uncertainty of the forecast at that point we had to scrap those plans. Everything else is on schedule as originally posted.
