Make Up Date TBD Early This Week For The Ridge

April 29, 2018 (Fonda, NY) – The Andy’s Speed Shop King Of Dirt Racing Sportsman Series presented by Dodson Construction was set to kick up some clay Sunday April 29th, until Mother Nature literally rained on the season opening parade. Weather has been an issue for many tracks around the Northeast to start the summer season.

This past week track promoters Ray Sefrin and Mike Parillo were hard at work with Reclamation services turning the track over fusing the new clay with the old to provide a wicked good surface for the KOD Sportsman opener that was scheduled for Sunday.

Unfortunately rains fell throughout the week hampering efforts to finish preparing the speedway and with more rain falling Saturday afternoon through evening along with cold temperatures forecasted Sunday, the decision was made to postpone the highly anticipated first ever KOD appearance at the fastest quarter mile on dirt.

Currently the powers that be are in the process of planning a make up date, which the goal is to run prior to the May 12th tour stop at Fonda Speedway. No date is set currently, but the plan is to announce the make up date early this coming week on either Monday or Tuesday. Race teams be patient and the information will be available soon as possible.
