This is the first of our monthly winter bulletins. Schedules are moving along, should be ready around the holidays. The winter office for both tracks is at the Toledo Speedway Automotive Building on the east end of the grounds; phone number, 419-727-1100 and mailing address remain the same.
W-9 FORMS: There are about 20 of you that have not returned this form. Since we do not include your SS # on the membership forms, we need this filled out for the tax man when sending your 1099’s. So…if you don’t have it on file, you won’t get a 1099, which means you will be late with your information for your tax man…..can download the form, under forms on both track home pages. Mail or fax to 734-847-3137 (ARCA office).
2020 SCHEDULES: We have just a few things we are working on to pretty much complete the 2020 schedules at both tracks; the plan, as in the past, is to release the schedules in mid to late December….stay tuned.

OFF-SEASON WORK AT THE TRACKS! At Toledo, we have put a new roof on the tech barn, had a sewer line repaired and sealed the cracks in the ½ mile.

We have also done some replacement/repair work on several concrete pads, and the TKC Karts are moving their storage area up by the pit sign-in.
