FREMONT, Ohio – A new division at Fremont Speedway in 2013 just didn’t work out. The sports compact division – four-cylinder, front wheel drive vehicles for teens – will not be back in 2014.
“We tried to create an entry level division for teens that was inexpensive where they could learn. Unfortunately, the division did not grow throughout the season and there were issues that made it cost-prohibitive for the track to continue to support it,” said Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer. “In hindsight, maybe a division for a vehicle that really wasn’t designed for the rigors of a dirt track for kids as young as 12 wasn’t right at this time. We encourage the older teens to look into the 305 sprints and dirt trucks to gain valuable seat time.”
Fremont Speedway will continue with the 410 winged sprints, 305 sprints and dirt trucks in 2014.
“We worked very hard to make our schedule not ‘regular nights’ in 2013. I think we gave the fans a different theme…a different angle every night and we are working hard to do that in 2014,” added Farmer.
