KALAMAZOO, MI – Kalamazoo Speedway will be the place to be on Friday nights when the season kicks off on April 29th. The Zoo boasts 5 weekly divisions, offering outstanding side by side racing week in and week out through August 26th when season championships are determined. September brings the fan favorite special programs.
The Outlaw Super Late Models will run 15 point paying events in 2016 plus two non-point Wednesday night races: the inaugural Gary Terry Follow Your Dreams 125 and the Kalamazoo Klash XXIV. Several other high lap weekly events will spotlight this division, including the Intimidator 100 on Opening Night.
The lightning quick Super Stocks rival many tracks’ top division of cars and the steel bodied Pro Stocks promise to offer the best hard core racing of any division in the Midwest with close to 30 drivers taking the field on any given night. The Mini Stocks will race 6 nights at the Kalamazoo Speedway and be hosted by two other local tracks for the 2016 season. For the thrills and spills of the weekly program, the Outlaw Cyber Stocks show just how quick a front wheel drive car can get around the 3/8 mile high-banked oval. An immediate fan favorite, the entry level Flip Flop Cyber Stock division introduces stock car racing to dozens of new drivers each season while entertaining fans with heads up, if not creative wheel handling. The companion “Rent-a-Ride” program was a sell-out in 2015 as scores of men and woman fulfilled lifelong dreams of an authentic racing experience.
In addition to the Friday night weekly points races, several special shows accent the season. Friday, July 1 marks the return of Bus Mania along with the biggest fireworks spectacular in Kalamazoo Speedway history. The Auto Value Bumper to Bumper Winged Super Sprint Series returns to the Zoo on July 15, running alongside the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Outlaw Super Late Models and three of the other weekly divisions.
Following Season Championship night on August 26 the schedule switches to Saturday night. The ever popular Call of the Wild kicks off the September special programs and the legendary Night of Destruction (September 17) promises to be even better this year. The 30th annual Super Shoe Nationals will round out the season on September 30-October 2.
In addition to the on-track action, fans can look forward to weekly giveaways (big screen TVs, Rent-a-Ride, stunt car for the Night of Destruction, VIP Skybox, backpacks for back-to-school, bikes) or events (spectator drags, big wheel and bicycle races, fireworks, classic cars, amateur car/truck drifting contests) and much more.
Kalamazoo Speedway will be the place to be in 2016 for clean family fun! The full 2016 Kalamazoo Speedway Schedule can be viewed at www.kalamazoospeedway.com.
