Obviously after 17 years of operating Speedway 660 we have had a lot of great memories and we’ll miss everyone that was part of the Speedway community. We certainly want to thank everyone for their support over the years and encourage everyone to be part of the next chapter at Speedway 660”, said former co-owner Steve Burns.
This season will mark the 20th season of operation for Speedway 660 and plans are well underway to make the season a memorable one.

Attn: Race Teams – Last year we tried a new approach to gathering input for rules updates vs the traditional rules meetings and we found it worked well. Over the past several years we have had rules meetings in other divisions but we have not had a very long list of items to discuss in any of the divisions. We received some feedback a couple of years ago around the usefulness of these meetings considering a lot of teams spend the better part of the day travelling to and from and attending the meetings.
This fall we are continuing with this new approach to updating our rules and getting input. We are hoping to get as much input if not more than we did last year as well as giving everyone back some family time and keeping people off the roads. We certainly would like to hear from you if you think there are rules we can change/update to make racing better and easier for everything to police and follow. We will accept input on these proposed rules/topics until January 17th, 2013.
After January 17th we will evaluate all the input received and update the 2013 rules. We are hoping to have these completed in DRAFT form for the 3rd of February. We will release a DRAFT set of 2013 rules for review (on our website). The rules will become final two weeks after the DRAFT are if no additional changes are required.
Dates to remember are:
January 17th, 2013 – Last day to send in your input on proposed rule updates/additions
February 3rd, 2013 – DRAFT rules released
February 17th, 2013 – DRAFT rules become FINAL.
