VERNON, NY - The month of June has something for everyone at Utica-Rome Speedway as weekly DIRT Motorsports sanctioned stock car racing on the ultra fast half-mile clay oval heats up for the summer. Scheduled are four Sunday evening race programs, with gates opening at 4pm, and racing taking the green flag from Starter Chip Burdick at 5:45pm.

Sunday June 3 kicks the month of June off at Utica-Rome with a regular show featuring the headline DIRT 358-Modifieds, plus the always-exciting DIRT Sportsman, DIRT Pro Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Slingshots.

On Sunday June 10, the spectators will be able to take part in the racing action, with the always-popular One on One Spectator races. Spectators, with a pit pass and helmet will drag race their vehicles on the speedway from turn four to the start finish line in elimination rounds, with the finals featuring a whole lap around the speedway! Also planned is a regular program of DIRT 358-Modifieds, DIRT Sportsman, DIRT Pro Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Slingshots.

Sunday June 17 will be another regular program with the mighty DIRT 358-Modifieds being the headline card, plus the DIRT Sportsman, DIRT Pro Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Slingshots.

The month of June at Utica-Rome closes out on Sunday June 24, with the annual Student Night at the speedway. Area school children ages 10-14 with a passing report card will be admitted FREE to the grandstand area for the evening's racing action. Scheduled for Student Night are the high powered DIRT 358-Modifieds and a non-point event for DIRT Sportsman plus a regular show for DIRT Pro Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Slingshots.

You can be a part of the "Fastest Family Fun in Central New York" this summer at the Utica-Rome Speedway, a Sunday family tradition in the Mohawk Valley that produces some of the most exciting three and four wide racing of the entire 26-track DIRT Motorsports circuit.

The track is located just east of the village of Vernon on Route 5 and is easily accessible from New York State Thruway Exit 33. Free parking and overnight camping is allowed on speedway grounds.
