GREAT FALLS, Mont. (April 24) – Electric City Speedway has postponed its season-opening Montana Spring Roundup to next Friday and Saturday, May 2-3.
IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds run for $500 to win and a minimum of $75 to start in their first appearances in Montana since the mid-1990s. An open practice starts at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 1.
The Spring Roundup was originally scheduled for this weekend and no change was been made in race day times: Pit gates at Great Falls open at 5 p.m. and the grandstand opens at 6 p.m. Hot laps are at 7 p.m. and racing starts at 7:30 p.m.
IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Larry Shaw Racing Western Region, Allstar Performance State and local track points will be awarded.
Electric City has been designated a border track so drivers from the Dakotas and Saskatchewan can also make the trip to earn Belleville Motorsports North Central Region points.
There is no entry fee and pit passes are $25. Grandstand admission is $10 for adults, $7 for students ages 12-17, and free for seniors 70 and over and kids 11 and under.
More information about the Spring Roundup is available from promoter Dan Mann at 406 727-4884 and at the www.electriccityspeedway.com website.
The event marks the start of the 61st continuous season of operation at Great Falls, a 3/10-mile high-banked clay oval.
