“We feel that this could be one of the most exciting years of
racing in our history,” said track owner, Don Hoenig. “We think we have an
exciting mixture of brand new race programs along with events that have been
popular with fans for many years. Putting all of this together in one
season’s race schedule should make for a great line up for competitors and
fans alike,” he concluded.
Competitors are reminded that it’s time to renew their car numbers
for next year. As in previous years, any racer who secured track points with
a registered car number in 2009 has until January 15, 2010 to renew that
number. If the car number is not renewed by the deadline, it will then be
assigned to the first person requesting that number. Thompson Speedway does
not charge competitors to register a race car. However, if a car number is
assigned but not used by the end of June 2010, that number will then become
available to another competitor. Race teams are reminded that Thompson will
accept requests for one and two digit numbers only. Letters or symbols of
any kind will not be accepted as part of the car’s official number.
