With the successful re-opening of the well-known 1/2 mile and 3/8th mile racing facilities, Dirt Track, and the addition of the Baer Field Truck and Tractor Pulling Track, facility proprietors Dave and Jody Muzzillo have decided to move forward into the racing future, renaming the 53-year-old facility “Baer Field Motorsports Park” for the 2016 season.
With a full slate of racing scheduled on the traditional 1/2 and 3/8th mile stock car tracks for the season, the addition of, “Tuesday Night Thunder,” has many racers and race fans talking. On Tuesday nights, beginning May 3rd, 600cc Winged and Non-Wing Mini Sprints will grace their presence on the 1/8 mile dirt track. These are the same vehicles that participate annually indoors at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum EXPO as part of the annual “Rumble In Fort Wayne” every December.
Accompanying the Mini Sprints on the Baer Field Dirt Track in 2016 will be the return of the Dirt Track Go-Karts with “Slide and Glide” Friday Nights, showcasing some of the best young racers the Midwest has to offer. The Friday Night Dirt Track Go-Kart program begins on May 6th. The Go-Karts will also be in action on Saturday with “Asphalt Summer” taking place on the 1/10th mile track pavement track located inside the famous 1/2 and 3/8th miles.
Other special events will highlight Baer Field Motorsports Park in 2016, including the return of the popular “Black Smoke Rally “ Truck and Tractor Pull which takes place on the 400ft pulling track also located inside the stock-car tracks.
The 2016 racing campaign gets underway on Saturday, April 16th with “Fan Appreciation Day” offering free general admission to all patrons, with the show beginning at a special time of 4 P.M. The normal race start time of 6:30 P.M. will begin on May 7th.
