I have to head to Sault Ste. Marie in a couple of weeks for work, and plan on checking out Laird Speedway.  Has anyone ever been there?  What can I expect?

That's what every tracks line up should look like, to hell with  4 funs and template bodies!

I just got back, and I am glad that I went.  Interesting track, seems to be laid out very similar to the Sunset of old with no walls, just guardrails on the front/back stretch and humps in the corners.  The racing was good, I think it is the only track in Ontario where the Super Lates are the weekly show.  Car counts were low, between 9 for the modifieds and 13 for the Factory Stocks (Thunder Cars), but like most tracks in the province the Thunder Cars put on a great show, running side by side caution free for the feature.  A couple of other interesting points:

Restarts are single file, which ended up spreading the field out too much for a small number of cars.

The announcer was fantastic!  Unfortunatly he decided to have his sister with him on the mic, but Spencer, you have a challenge in this guy!

I did feel like my life was in danger in the bleachers.  They seemed to be a collection of whatever was scrounged up, and missing boards were not rare.

I am pretty sure that many people haven't had a chance to check it out.  If you are in the Soo sometime, make sure you take a look, it was worth the money.  The Thursday night racing also seemed to work well, as the crowd was good considering it rained 30 minutes before start time.

i know this post a little old now but glad you enjoyed our racetrack there many new things to come for 2009 for Lir . The Track Owner has added a figure 8 in the middle of the infield .. Also as a racer there I do not know  the  shape of the stand but you are not the first to mention that they are in bad shape hopefull the track owner will address that concern of many this off season..
