CLEARFIELD, Pa. – CNB Bank Raceway Park has been acquired by new ownership and will be releasing a 2013 schedule in just a few days.
Owner Rob Hindt will lead the new management team. Hindt and his management team have an extensive background in NASCAR racing. For the last few years he has been operating a driving school at short tracks throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. His experience, background and connections in the industry led him to the famed five-eighths-mile in Clearfield.
“The Bainey’s really brought CNB Bank Raceway Park to everyone’s attention last year throughout the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Hindt. “This place is one of the biggest short tracks in the country, the geographic location is great, the reputation they established with racers and fans is phenomenal, and overall it’s just the ideal situation for us to expand upon. Between our On Track Racing Experience and our return to focus on asphalt late model racing – I think we are sure to bring some real excitement to Central and Western Pennsylvania.”
Former track co-owner Tim Bainey Jr. shared in those thoughts.
“I’m really excited for what lies ahead with the CNB Bank Raceway Park. We had discussions with several interested parties, but Rob had by far the most well-balanced and exciting plan for the speedway,” Bainey said. “I love asphalt racing and I think that he will be a great contributor to the long term success of asphalt racing in our part of the country.
“I am going to continue to work with Rob and CNB Bank Raceway Park on the marketing side of things and I am encouraging all of our friends and business partners to do the same. We have a great place here in Central Pennsylvania and it is really important for those of us who love asphalt racing that we support the CNB Bank Raceway Park in whatever way possible. There are going to be some exciting things going on this season at the CNB Bank Raceway Park and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
