“We are overwhelmed by the early response for this event. We are excited to have our biggest race in Millbridge history in just over two weeks,” Said track owner Jeremy Burnett.


The current Speed51 Open entry list is headlined by dirt standouts-turned-NASCAR stars Kyle Larson, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., and Rico Abreu.  More dirt talents that are known throughout the nation that will be competing in the Speed51 Open include Tyler Dippel, Hunter Richards, Nick Hoffman, Chase Briscoe and Tanner Thorson.


Those are just a few of the drivers who will look to unseat track favorites including Karsyn Elledge, Tom Hubert, Hunter Richards, Jimmy Elledge and Dylan Smith for the big-money during the Speed51 Open on May 25.

Following the conclusion of the on-track action there will be an after-party featuring a live band.


Wednesday night’s schedule includes only the Open Division for the Outlaw Karts.  Heat races are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and will be lined up based upon Tuesday night’s time trial results.  The top-four finishers in each heat race will be inverted with the winner going to the dash, second going to the A-Main and third on back going to the B, C and D Mains.


The Dash will be eight laps and the drivers will line up based upon the “revenge draw,” which allows drivers to draw for starting position and then assign that positon to another driver.


Following the Dash, B-Main, C-Main and D-Main features, the field will be set and the Outlaw Kart racers will buckle in to battle for the $5,151 top prize.
