WEST FARGO, ND (May 12) – It has been 1,357 days since Red River Valley Speedway has last seen its dirt fly, grandstands filled, and checkered flag wave. Since then – August 25th, 2012 – the “fastest track in the upper Midwest” has sat dormant, exposed to the cold of winter, the scorching August heat, and brutal north winds.
But thanks to the diligence and persistence of Nick Skalicky and Jake and Sharnel Bitker, the 3/8th mile dirt oval now has a pulse again and is set to come to life this Friday night, May 13th.
A fresh layer of dirt, a new scoreboard/lap counter, a little re-configuring of the racing surface, and some new paint here and there has the already state of the art facility glistening and ready for its debut to kick off a new era of racing in the Red River Valley.
All the news stations have covered the track’s progress, the radio ads have been running for months; all that’s left to do is race!
