AFTON, NY – Racing will continue at the Afton Fairgrounds in 2018.
On Wednesday afternoon, Ron Ford confirmed he would continue as promoter of Afton Motorsports Park next season. Ford, with partner Leon Andrus, just concluded their first season operating the facility in successful fashion with a jam-packed American Racer Cup Short Track SuperNationals 10 weekend.
Ford met with fair board officials and extended his agreement into ’18. Andrus announced on Monday that he would not return for the second season.
Friday night racing will again be headlined by big-block/small-block Modifieds. A complete review of divisions will take place in the coming weeks, but all classes from ’17 are expected back on a regular basis.
The speedway will again host special events including Short Track SuperNationals 11 in October.
