Racing Returns to Atomic Speedway

Presented by Hometown-Motors, Inc.

After rains forced Atomic Speedway’s opening night to be pushed back four nights, the weather was perfect Tuesday.

The roar of engines filled the Huntington Hills as dust rose into the night sky as Cole Duncan took the checkered flag in the 410 Sprint Car Invitational.

The only thing missing was the fans in the stands due to the coronavirus pandemic. That will be the same for Atomic’s next race featuring Late Models Friday May 29th.

Tuesday’s race was televised in a pay-per-view format by Speed Shift TV. Friday’s race will be another PPV event and will be carried by www.dirtondirt.com.

Our Litter Media Cameras were there to capture highlights.

While NASCAR resumes its season this weekend, race teams will be kicking up dust locally at Atomic Speedway Thursday May 21st. Brad McCown made the announcement during a Facebook Live broadcast Friday afternoon, saying “It’s time to go racin’.”

As with the stock car race at Darlington Sunday, dirt track excitement at Atomic will be without spectators. In addition, race teams will face social distancing restrictions in the pit area.

It will be the Scioto Valley Region’s first sports event since the state put a halt to such events due to the coronavirus pandemic in March.

“They gave us the go ahead to go without fans for now” McCown said of the approval by the Ross County Health District. “It’ll be drivers, plus four crew members. Everybody in the pits will pit 10 foot apart.”

Fans will be able to watch the action of The 410 Sprint Invitational via pay per view being telecast by Speed Shift TV. Then Friday May 29th, Late Models will line up at Atomic.

McCown also stated the dirt track has a new ownership partner, Chad Walters, in a deal completed Friday.

Rain date for the event is Monday May 25th.
