Sale of Lakeside Speedway Continues To Make Strides

LakesidelittleThe much anticipated sale of Lakeside Speedway to Mike and Kyle Johnson and Don and Donna Marrs is one step closer to being finalized.

Contracts were recently signed between the previous owners and the new owners.

The signed contract allows the partnership of Johnson and Marrs to officially move forward with the 2013 schedule, facility improvements, a driver’s meeting, rules, car and driver registration, pit spot registration, and sanctioning.

Concerning the schedule new events are planned at Lakeside this year with the Lucas Oil Late Models competing at the famed speedway on July 16, 2013.

USMTS is making several trips to the half-mile track (April 19th, July 16th, August 23rd, along with a three-day season ending event October 3-5, 2013. The World of Outlaws also makes their return on June 8, 2013. All this and the most exciting Friday night weekly program of USRA Modifieds, USRA B Mods, Grand National, and Factory Stocks will return on April 12, 2013.

Several facility improvements are planned, some will be visible this year as Marrs and Johnson are beginning to work on the facility. Some improvements are weather dependent; other improvements are scheduled for future race seasons. Fan improvements, beyond those visible facility improvements, will include an opportunity to meet some of our racing legends from seasons past.

A driver’s meeting is scheduled at the Kansas City International Airport Marriott Hotel on Saturday, February 2, 2013 beginning at 10 a.m. Drivers and their crew members are welcome to come meet the new owners, complete their 2013 registration, pick up class and general rules, reserve their pit spots, complete the sanctioning paperwork, and get their questions answered
