Full Schedule HERE:
HOLLAND, NY… We are Holland Speedway. Following the Holland Speedway’s release in October that announced the return of the Getzoni Nationwide Insurance Pro Modifieds as the track’s top NASCAR division, management continued to look back on the 58 year history of one of WNY’s racing icons. #WeAreHollandSpeedway became the resounding common denominator throughout the entire discussion. All the hard work year in and year out, the fire and passion of the track’s drivers, the enthusiasm and undying excitement from fans, and the support of incredible local sponsors, are the makeup of what makes the track tick.
With a focus on sending the #WeAreHollandSpeedway hashtag viral, the 2017 season and 58th year of racing began to take form over the past two months. At a time when families are sharing Holiday cheer with one another, and because of the Holland Speedway’s close knit racing family that extends far past it’s race night events, the Holiday Season is the perfect time to release the upcoming schedule.
Opening Day will kick off on Saturday May 20th, with a newly created Practice and Heats Race Day the week prior, to determine the Opening Day lineup. Two CRASH-A-RAMA events will again rock the speedway on June 10th, and September 9th to close out the season. New this year will be the Summer Sizzler, a 200 lap Enduro race on Saturday July 29th that will consist of 100 laps for 4-cylinders, and 100 laps for 6-cylinders. The excitement behind Enduro races has grown in recent years, and in a continued effort to give all types of racing fans what they crave, the Speedway created an event to entertain exactly that.
July 22nd marks the return of the ROC Modified Tour 100, and the annual Pro Modified George Decker Memorial and Labor Day Weekend Season Championships are set for August 5th and September 2nd respectively. Finally, the Holland Speedway management is proud and humbled to announce the first annual Butch Palmer Hornet 32. The racing world lost a true local legend of the sport this Fall, and are set to honor the late Hornet driver and track fan favorite, Butch Palmer, with the 32 lap race to commemorate his racing number and legacy on September 2nd.
The schedule will be updated regularly as sponsorships are allocated to different events, and more details are released during the offseason.
