More improvements, more teamwork between tracks, time ticking down, football season over, race season coming... yes, it is February and the days are getting longer and warmer. It will not be long and we will be racing at I-35 Speedway.

Practice day is March 11 and opening night is March 18.

Work continues with more and more improvements at the track, improvements which have been ongoing for years.

In seasons past, the Trackside Bar & Grill was built, a wooden floor was added to the cat walk, the pit shack was added, new lights added in the pits, new lights added to the track and a picnic and camping area was added two years ago.

The electronic sign along I-35 Speedway, which was completed this year, was four years in the making.

Owners Mike and Kyle Johnson continuously plan and make improvements for the fans, racers, crews and employees who make up the I-35 Speedway racing family.

The latest improvement is a wooden fence at the entrance to the track.

The electronic sign, pit expansion and new bleachers have all been accomplished this off season.

Picnic tables will be distributed throughout the facility.  Improvements are continuous.

As previously reported, U.S. 36 Raceway and I-35 Speedway have introduced The Shootout—a joint effort to crown a champion in the shared classes at both tracks, including USRA Modifieds, Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods.

The Shootout requires a minimum of 75% participation at each of the tracks.  Since this championship is based on the lowest score, those not attending the races will be awarded 50 points for each race that is missed until they become ineligible because they can no longer make 75% of the races.
