The crews are hard at work at Southern Oklahoma Speedway! For a few weeks now the hard labor has continued and showing much progress.
The top concession has been redone. It has been extended and now has a large kitchen as well as an inside dining area. New equipment has been added, and the floor has been tiled. The lower restrooms have been started. They are now being dismantled and will be replaced with a large restroom building complete with mens and womens showers that will be accessible during our special events.
Dirt is being moved to the outside of turn 3, turn 4, and the backstretch in order to give a less potent drop in case any of the cars leave the race track. This was a main safety concern last season and needed to be addressed aggressively.
There is still alot of work to be done in the short time we have before racing season starts. The restrooms will be completed, the backstretch wall will be straightened and reinforced and the frontstretch will be redone. The crews are working seven days a week with little break to create a supernice facility envisioned by John Webb, who bought the facility mid-last season. John is very driven to help bring back dirt track racing in the southern Oklahoma area. "I will go at it hard and give it my best to make this season the best Ardmore has seen yet." The season is still scheduled to open with a test and tune March 17th and car show and first points night March 24th.
