INEX Legends Added Weekly as Part of Busy Summer Slate at Sheyenne Speedway for 2020
There is a lot happening this summer at the Sheyenne Speedway in Lisbon in what could be one of biggest summers in the history of the track.
Some of the biggest news came last fall when more dirt was added to the 1/4-mile oval, which should lead to even more side by side racing at the track and a wider racing surface as well.
“The track will continue to be slick and smooth like always with traction strips at the top for the drivers that want to go get after it.” said co-promoter Hunter Carter.
Other big news is the addition, weekly, of the INEX Legends division. The class ran a partial schedule a year ago. Brody Carlsrud of Moorhead was the track champion.
“The enthusiasm we received from the Legend race teams and fans makes this a great fit with a lot of potential for growth.” said co-promoter Benjie Froemke.
The track will race on a Saturday this year (June 27) and on a Friday (Aug. 7). Sheyenne will take the month of July off like it did in 2019. For more go to sheyennespeedway.com.
