Nascar Day ????
« on: March 28, 2008, 11:38:56 AM »
Someone told me they saw the track advertising for a Nascar Day on May 10. They saw it on the main billboard out front.  Does anyone have any info on this....

I live 10 mins away. I have to go out today and will drive by and check it out. I can report back but it won't be until later on this afternoon.

The ISMA show will NOT be there

CAYUGA MOTOR SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES SCHEDULE CHANGE
March 24, 2008 – During the winter, Cayuga Motor Speedway signed a contract with the International SuperModified Association (ISMA) to have the series appear at Cayuga on Sunday, August 31, 2008 as part of the track’s Labour Day program featuring the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.
On March 15, ISMA issued a press release announcing, "… the Cayuga Speedway ISMA race tentatively included in the 2008 ISMA schedule would NOT go on as planned."
The owners and management of Cayuga Motor Speedway would like to clarify this matter by re-confirming that they have a signed contract with ISMA for a race on Sunday, August 31 and that it was an incorrect statement for the event to have been characterized as "tentative" in the ISMA release.
The ISMA press release also stated that ISMA had taken part in negotiations with another speedway (at a car show in early March) that involved the cancellation of the race at Cayuga Motor Speedway, without the prior knowledge or consent of Cayuga. It was only following these negotiations that ISMA contacted Cayuga Motor Speedway about canceling the event.
"We entered into a good faith agreement with ISMA to have them appear at our track. And until being contacted by ISMA, we had every intention of including ISMA in our Labour Day program," said Frank Marchionda, the Executive Director of Cayuga Motor Speedway. "We understand that many ISMA teams have traditionally competed at Oswego Speedway on Labour Day, and in the interests of the fans and the sport we’re willing to accommodate ISMA’s desire to be released from our contract obliging them to appear at Cayuga Motor Speedway in 2008."
Marchionda continued, "We apologize to our fans for this unfortunate turn of events and we want to make it clear that Cayuga Motor Speedway is committed to operating in a professional and honourable manner. We understand that people make arrangements and commitments based on our published schedule and we take this matter very seriously. We have many exciting events planned for this season and we will learn from this experience going forward."
Cayuga Motor Speedway will host the season-opening NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race – The Crown Jewel 200 – on Saturday, May 24. The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series returns Saturday, August 30 for its second of two events at the 5/8-mile, Hamilton-area oval. The U.S.-based ARCA RE/MAX Series, which recently opened its 2008 season at Daytona Int’l Speedway, will be in action at Cayuga on Sunday, June 29.

I just came from Cayuga Speedway and talked to a guy there and he said that May 10th is the NASCAR Canadian Tires Series test and tune day all are welcome free of charge and there will be a tailgate party afterwards. A band will be playing and drivers will be there to meet with the fans.

Remember at Cayuga this season there is free camping no need to drive drunk or tired....remember my son Matt fell asleep while driving (in the morning) that is how he had his accident that has left him paralized. Please people it can happen to any of us.

I can't wait to go for the sound of engines and smell of rubber. I've been suffering withdrawal Hopefully some more info about test/tune day will be posted on either this site or the tracks.

Nascar Day May 10 Cayuga
« Reply #10 on: May 08, 2008, 11:08:50 AM »
Days are counting down quick to this weekends preview. The site mentions "Spectator gate opens to the public at 9am. General seating in grandstands only. Tailgate party, driver meet at 5:00pm in track infield. "

I've driven past the compound and see a lot of new white paint, old signs removed, grass cut, etc.

Looking forward to checking things out and can't wait until Race Day.
