While we are still putting the final touches on the new Vado Speedway Park, things are not quite ready yet so we must postpone our opening weekend to mid-June.

On Friday, we will host our first event and first "Friday Night Under the Lights" of the 2019 racing season. Rancho Milagro USRA Modifieds, American Documents & Dent Works Super Trucks, Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars and Clayton Donnelly Roofing Claimers will be in action.

Then on Saturday, the Vado Speedway Park Weekly Racing Series will kick off with Lucas Oil POWRi 305 Winged Sprint Cars, Anthony Sosa Roofing Late Models, Hacienda Carpet & Tile USRA X-Mods, Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars and Casa Nissan Legend Cars on the racing card.

Gates open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7:45 both nights. General admission is $12 each night while seniors and members of the military get in for just $10. Youth ages 6-11 are $5 and kids ages 5 and under are admitted free of charge. Pit passes will be $35 each night.

Prior to the grand opening weekend, the Vado Speedway Park will host a pair of test ‘n’ tune practice sessions for drivers and teams in any division on Saturday, May 18, and Saturday, May 25. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with practice from 6-10. Pit passes will be $25 and the grandstands will be closed.

“We can't say thank you loud enough or enough times to all of our fans, competitors, sponsors and staff for their help in getting things ready to go, and for their patience during this phase,” said Vado Speedway Park General Manager Rue Stone. “We have had a lot of people visit the facility and are humbled by the fantastic comments from everybody. We can’t wait to fire up the engines and turn on the lights.”

The Vado Speedway Park is a new state-of-the-art semi-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located just off of I-10 at exit 155, then 0.2 mile north on Stern Dr. (track is on your left) in Vado, N.M.
