June 21, 2015
From Race Fans to drivers to staff, all wish that the rain would stay away on race nights. Sycamore Speedway was happy to be able to get at least 1 night of racing in this past weekend. But where are the good ol e days of cooperative weather so the only summer plans were racing and more racing…maybe next weekend.
Friday, June 19, 2015 was a night again with large car counts in all classes and a demolition derby that had fans on their feet. It was also the first Friday night bubble gum races and those kids had a BLAST! So many of them had never experienced a Sycamore Speedway bubble gum race, they had grins from ear to ear!
Saturday, June 20, 2015 was another win for Mother Nature. Sycamore Speedway had rescheduled their Joe & Nick Memorial race from the prior weekend due to a mid-race night rainout and again no success in getting that race in. They did manage to get the Kids Power Wheel Demo in and even though all got wet in the process, lasting memories were made. Kids from as little as 2 yrs old up to age 10 proudly drove their power wheels in their demo pit. All kids had to follow same rules as drivers, in that they must wear a helmet, wear long sleeves and closed toed shoes. They each also got a wristband and had to show it to staff in order to enter the pit. As with Sycamore Speedway’s Friday night demos, there was a countdown by staff and fans and then little engines roared and they started smashing. Each child walked away with a 3 foot trophy and an official 2015 Power Wheel Demo T-Shirt. This may be the new class for Sycamore Speedway in 2016. Kids will get a chance to demo again in 2015, on Friday, August 28.
