Racing action resumes at the St. Francois County Raceway on Saturday, April 21st with Ryan's/County Auto Glass Night. It will be a very special night because for the first time the 600cc Multis will be a regular part of the SFCR racing program (racing once a month). The night also marks the first $5 night of the season when adults are admitted to the main grandstand of the track for only $5.
