DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 11, 2004) -- There are many unique things about Adirondack International Speedway, such as its location, fan amenities, its own newspaper, and its membership in the ASA Racing Member Track program.
Adirondack Motor Speedway is nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, near New Bremen, N.Y. Besides the 10 degree banked, 0.50-mile oval, the facility includes 980 acres of wooded area, open fields, ponds and a beaver meadow where the idea for the track's official mascot, "Willie Wannabe," the world's fastest beaver, was conceived.
"I cannot think of many racetracks in the world that have a more beautiful setting that Adirondack International Speedway," said Dennis Huth, president of Racing Speed Associates which now owns and operates the ASA Racing Member Track program. "Besides building a world-class racing facility, Paul Lyndaker is pulling out all the stops for the fans to come and enjoy more than a night at the races. They can come to Adirondack, camp out in the wilderness, enjoy nature walks, and make a full weekend on the grounds."
The AIS weekly Saturday night program, aptly named "Summer Sizzle," will feature four regular divisions: Challenger Late Models, True Stock, the 4-Cylinder Dig Safely Class, and the Box Stretcher Light Trucks. Several times during the season, special "Super Summer Sizzler" events will take to the track; these are events such as the NASCAR Busch North Series and N.Y. State Challenge Late Model events.
For schedule or track information, visit Adirondack International Speedway online at www.adirondackspeedway.com or www.screamininnewbremen.com. Fans can also telephone the track at (315) 346-RACE.
One of the most unique aspects of AIS is that they publish a weekly newspaper to keep the local fans current with the news and results. Screamin' in New Bremen, the name of the publication, is distributed free of charge through local merchants.
"We are quite pleased with the car and truck count, and overall are very pleased with how the season is shaping up," stated Paul Lyndaker, owner of Adirondack International Speedway. "The demand for racing is high everywhere today, and there is still room for growth.
"We feel that the experience that Dennis Huth has will help him to bring the ASA Racing Member Track program to the top, and that under his leadership the program will shine. There is a lot of room for his program to grow, and for us to grow right along with it," Lyndaker added.
Lyndaker also indicated the he is continuing with plans to expand the facility and complete construction of the "Near Mile." This is a 0.99-mile oval with 15 degrees of banking that will be one of the widest and fastest racetracks in New York State.
Tracks and regional touring series that join the ASA Racing Member Track Level I program are eligible to receive contributions to their year-end point fund, marketing assistance, enhanced participant accident insurance, and will be the spot for today's fans to watch the stars of tomorrow learn the trade. Huth indicated that he has other exciting ideas and plans to help take the local racing programs to new levels and to further enhance the coverage of the tracks and series competitors.
