One way radio system mandatory at Utica-Rome Speedway for modifieds and sportsman starting July 7.

VERNON, NY -- The One-Way Radio System will be mandatory for all 358-Modified and Sportsman competitors at Utica-Rome Speedway beginning Sunday July 7.

The frequency will be 154.515, the same as all the area DIRT sanctioned tracks. An official in the tower will operate the system, and drivers will be alerted immediately to yellow flag conditions, the location of the incident, and how to get around it. In addition to safety being an important factor, the system will also be used during cautions to realign the field, which will simply help speed the show along.

All a driver needs is a typical scanner type radio and a good fitting earpiece. For a cost of around $100, a driver will save a lot of money during the season from unnecessary crashes. The system will be in use starting Sunday June 16, and drivers that already have it are encouraged to use the system as soon as possible. It will be mandatory for all drivers to have it beginning Sunday July 7.
