Hi Guys,

I'm planning on running a regular series of races on the Sussex Speedway 2.0. These races will be held either monthly or every other month and I am planning on running Hot Rods (pre-1940 cars and trucks), Gassers (cars from the 40's, 50's and early to mid 60's, all using the common, plastic '55 Gasser chassis), Muscle Cars (cars from the mid 60's through the 70's) and Muscle Trucks (pickups from the 50's through the 80's).

The weights and sizes of the vehicles will be standard and I'd like to keep the top 2-3 cars from each race to shoot it out in a year-end event.

More details will be coming shortly. I'll be scheduling these races so they won't interfere with the RLD, there will be lots of racing here in 2020!

Are there any other themes of cars that you would like to see? Imports? Nascar? Etc?  

Stay tuned for more info soon.

In case you where ever wondering what was underneath old Sussex Speedway...well, it was just spare vinyl siding and roofing shingles. Kinda a sad sight, but the new locale wIill be set up soon!
