The Leader-Herald
EPHRATAH — Though just one event is
in the book, Caroga Creek Raceway is off to
a significantly better start this season than
last.
At this point last season, Caroga Creek had
postponed its opener once and racers didn't
hit the track for the first event until May 13.
The result was an abbreviated season that
saw the points chase begin in June and end
just 15 events later.
"We want to get some help from Mother
Nature this year," Caroga Creek co-promoter
Tom Hall said. "No rainouts would be nice."
The Caroga Creek staff has been busy in
the offseason working to add a VIP tower to
the track as well as working in several loads
of new clay for the racing surface.
"We've added VIP towers this year. They
will be available for sponsors and rentals,"
Hall said. "We've put more clay down this
year, so the surface should be good."
Hall said he's hoping to draw 55-60 karts
each week this season, which began Saturday with the track's test and tune event as
well as a swap meet.
This year's schedule features the usual
weekly card, which includes several kart
classes as well as the slingshots. This year
admission will be $3 for spectators.
The track also is planning to host lawnmower races this season as well.
In addition to its regular shows, Caroga
Creek will host several special events this
season.
The point chase is scheduled to begin
April 27 at Caroga Creek.
The New York Dirt Kart Series is scheduled to visit May 12.
The New York Dirt Kart Series also will
visit Paradise Speedway (April 28), Turkey
Trot Raceway (June 16), Limerock Speedway (June 23), Ransomville Speedway (July

21), Allegany Memorial Speedway (Aug.
18) and Starlite Speedway (Sept. 8) this season.
Caroga Creek also will host its annual
King of Dirt Series on May 25, June 22,
July 27 and Aug. 31.
The track will hosts its fifth annual Clash
at the Creek event on Sept. 14 as well as its
annual Dual Action Weekend Aug. 24 and
25.
The Empire Unlimited All-Stars will visit
the track on May 18.
Caroga Creek will wrap up its season with
the fourth annual Burris Fall Series on Sept.
Motocross
22, Sept. 29, Oct. 6 and Oct. 13.
"Hopefully, it will be a dry and hot summer. We're hoping to have some fun racing
this year. We're excited to get going."
Caroga Creek is scheduled to be back in
action Friday with a regular show beginning
at 7 p.m. before the Richard Murtaugh Racing Outlaw Series visits on April 14.
