Following a period of speculation for racers and fans alike, the future of Lancaster's race track has been determined. The facility will reopen under the name Lancaster National Speedway and the Western New York speed plant will host racing and entertainment events throughout the 2015 season. The ownership group has hired Melissa McGowan to be the General Manager for the facility. McGowan was part of the promotional team that hosted the season-ending 26th annual U.S. Open event at the facility.

"I grew an immense appreciation for the facility, it's racers and fans very quickly," stated McGowan. "The staff that came together to help put on the event was absolutely outstanding. It's my goal to move the facility forward using the resources that are provided to me as well as the experience of several key individuals who reside in Western New York and who have a great passion for the facility as well as an outlook for the future of the race track."

Drag racing will continue with a test and tune nights during summer weeks, as well the traditional Friday night drag racing program. Stock cars will race on Saturday nights, with Cruise Nights and other entertainment events placed on the schedule to entertain Western New Yorker's throughout the season.

"Lancaster definitely has a bright future," continued McGowan. "With a focus on Customer Service and some "TLC", we feel we can rebuild the passion and drive for the facility. We saw it this past Fall and we'll be working toward an electric atmosphere once again. The excitement is already building and we've got a lot of work to do to get the ball rolling in the right direction."

Opening Day will be announced soon and will be scheduled for early to mid May 2015. Meetings for racers will be scheduled and posted in the upcoming weeks as well the entire 2015 schedule.
