2020 FLAT ROCK/TOLEDO SPEEDWAY BULLETIN (3-2-20)
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.
The Late Model class name has been revised to Outlaw Super Late Models (OLSM).
THANK YOU to Moran Chevrolet (Flat Rock Outlaw Super Late Models and Outlaw Super Late Model Gold Cup Series), Victory Lane Quick Oil Change (Figure 8’s), The Vault Antiques and Treasures (Enduro and Factory Stocks), DTS Drive Train Specialists (Street Stock and Gold Cup Series), Royal Truck and Trailer (Outlaw Super Late Model Gold Cup Series) for renewal of their sponsorships and support! R & M Recycling will now become the title sponsor of the ARCA Late Model Sportsman class. CNV Enterprises, owned by Andy O’Bryan (Gold Cup Series) joins us as a new sponsor! Additional sponsorships will be announced as they are secured.
**2020 SCHEDULES are posted. You can find them under the schedule/results tab or under the Racer info tab on the home pages of both of the tracks websites. Pocket schedules will be available around March 25.
FLAT ROCK PAD RENTALS: The form is posted under the Racer Info. Tab of the home page…save $50 and get a free pit pass to one of the practices if paid by April 1….
FLAT ROCK TURN ONE-TWO WALL/FENCING PROJECT: Weather permitting, the fence posts will be installed the first week of March. **Until we get the added bleacher project figured out (located in turn 1 on the other side of the fuel tank), we will install a cable 5-6 feet away from the wall, which will serve as the barrier between you and the wall. WHEN the bleacher project is completed (probably for 2021 season), we will then paint a line on the back side of the hill asphalt…in other words, NO standing by the fence in front of that line. This is for your safety…please work with us as we make these improvements.
ENDURO ENTRY BLANKS will be available around Mid-March. **We will mail the first one out…this will be the only mailing. They will also be under the Racer Info. Tab on the website.
CAR NUMBERS: **We will again include driver rosters in the souvenir program. IF you are a new driver or you are changing classes or numbers, call Scott before Friday, March 6, so we may include you in the program.

Bazell Race Fuels (Toledo) and Corrigan Race Fuels (Flat Rock) will once again be a sponsor at the tracks for the 2020 season; they supply us with Sunoco Race Fuel.
