October 17th Sunoco Super Series Event Moved To Baer Field Speedway
Salem, IN (September 14, 2004) -- Sunoco Super Series Officials announced today that the series event that had been scheduled at Angola Motor Speedway on Sunday, October 17th has been moved to Baer Field Speedway in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. That event had been originally rescheduled from September 4th to October 17th because of construction delays on the remodeling of Angola Motor Speedway. Further delays have resulted in the event being moved to Baer Field Speedway.
"The rainy weather this summer just put us to far behind to get Angola Motor Speedway properly open for an event this season," remarked Dick Poe, owner of Angola Motor Speedway. "We will now have until spring of 2005 to get everything done and be ready for a full season of racing with some great improvements for our fans and racers!"
Angola Motor Speedway will be the Presenting Sponsor of the 100 lap Sunoco Super Series event at Baer Field Speedway on Sunday, October 17th.
"We wanted to show everyone with the series how sorry we are for not getting the track opened," said Poe. "We have always been big supporters of the Sunoco Super Series and we support the move of the event to Baer Field Speedway. We look forward to having the series back next year at the new and improved Angola Motor Speedway!"
Improvements at Angola Motor Speedway include new grandstand seating, a new operations tower with suites, new front-stretch lighting, a new concession area and new bathrooms. Also planned this winter is track grinding, patching, new pit concessions, new pit restrooms and a Go-Kart track in the pit area.
"We commend Dick Poe for doing what he could to try and have a series event this season," remarked Glenn Luckett, Sunoco Super Series Director. "We all know to well that nobody can control the weather, it is a constant factor in our business. We look forward to racing next season at Angola Motor Speedway and having our fans and racers enjoy the new improvements. We would also like to thank Tom Ish at Baer Field Speedway for working with us on getting the event moved to his racetrack!"
The Sunoco Super Series event at Baer Field Speedway will be a Sunday afternoon show with an open practice on Saturday, October 16th. A complete weekend schedule of events will be released shortly. The racing that Sunday at Baer Field Speedway will also include an Outlaw Late Model event and at least one additional support division. More information will be available on that event at www.sunocosuperseries.com or at www.baerfieldspeedway.com.
