The 2014 season continues at The Utica Rome Speedway this weekend.  The 2nd weekend of racing will have a somber feel, as the speedway mourns the loss of longtime racer, Steve Hulsizer. 

The flag dropped on the 53rd season at Utica Rome Speedway last Sunday and for the first time under The NASCAR banner.

"Mike Mahaney hopes the momentum that he gained with the opening night win can carry over to the lucrative 2014 Modified championship, worth $13,000 this season, and possible additional NASCAR money as well. With regular handicapping starting this week, Mahaney will have his work cut out for as Stewart Friesen, Matt Sheppard, Pat Ward, Larry Wight, Ryan Phelps, Danny Varin, and all the other drivers he bested last week will now be starting in front of him. "

Here’s the list of last week’s top 5 finishes.  In addition to the modifieds this weekend, there’s a full schedule of Sportsman, Pro Stock and Pure Stock divisions too.

Gates open at 3:30 Friday afternoon for the opening day with racing at 6.  Tickets are $13 for adults, $11 for seniors, military and students.  Kids 9 and under are free.  The speedway also offers a special family seating section.
