TOLEDO OH (10-31-03) ARCA RE/MAX Series officials, upon receiving the news that Winchester Speedway will not be open for business next year, have altered the 2004 schedule.

"We're certainly proud of the many improvements we were able to bring to Winchester Speedway over the last half-dozen years or so," said track owner/promoter Charlie Shaw. "However, the improvements came at great expense, so we have decided to take a year off and re-evaluate our long term plans for the future before we make any more decisions. Anyway, we're going to regroup, take 2004 off, and see what happens for 2005."

As a replacement for the Saturday night, September 4 Winchester race, RE/MAX Series officials have inserted a Friday night, September 3 event at Toledo Speedway.

"We're certainly disappointed we won't be going to Winchester in 2004," said ARCA President Ron Drager. "The show had grown over the years into one of our finest short-track programs, but the business climate is continually changing, so we change with it. Charlie (Shaw) has done a lot for Winchester Speedway. We feel fortunate to be an important part of the track's history, and of course, we wish Charlie and the speedway well."

In switching the race event from Saturday to Friday, ARCA RE/MAX Series teams will have an extra travel day en route to the Monday, September 6 Labor Day event at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds in DuQuoin, Illinois.
