Mother Nature Wins, even in the off season

SHELLHAMMERS SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCEMENT: Despite all our progress during this off season to improve safety and appearance, it is with regret that we will NOT be ready to open our gates Saturday, March 30th. Our long “to do” list will also cancel our “wingless” Wednesday show on April 3rd. We are proud of the huge undertaking that has been ongoing at the speedway, but, mother nature has not been kind in allowing us to complete our tasks. We strive to make our speedway first in safety and entertainment. With that said, we want to make sure everything is in place when we do welcome our guests. On your first visit of the season, you’ll notice quite a bit of changes. The walls have been replaced with three tiers of guardrail and all new “catch” fence has been installed. The new fencing is much stronger and durable, but, that doesn’t mean it should be tested. (LOL) Along with these improvements, we’re in the process of replacing our track lighting system. New LED lights are being put up and along with this comes new lighting poles and wiring. Although not all lights will be replaced at one time, both drivers and fans will notice a huge difference. New clay has been put on the track surface and numerous truck loads more have been brought in for future use. Another change is to the South Pit ticket booth. During the removal of several dead trees on the premises, unfortunately, the ticket booth “got in the way” and was heavily damaged. The booth has been replaced with a bright orange one that can’t be missed. The bleachers have been power washed and repaired. They will soon be painted and made pretty again. Oh, yeah, that new bigger and better concession stand we’ve been needing and talking about for quite a while, is still on the planning board, but will have to wait a little longer. Our hope is to get it built sometime during this season. In the meantime, the old one will have to do. By the time we open in a couple of weeks, we will have internet at the track for the first time. This will allow us to utilize MyLaps for your convenience. One of the other major undertakings that will need to get done in the very near future is a complete over haul of our sound system. I guess it’s true that all good things take time. We ask for your continued patience with us. Please share this message. Dave and Brenda Cordier
