Opening night for newly-sanctioned Bronco Motor Speedway is Friday

CLEVELAND, Texas – IMCA Modifieds will have another Friday night home in Texas beginning this weekend at Bronco Motor Speedway.

Pit gates open early for out-of-town drivers traveling to the June 30 show at Cleveland. The grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m., hot laps are at 7 p.m. and racing starts at 8 p.m.

Bronco is part of IMCA’s Razor Chassis South Central Region. Season championship night is Sept. 22.

“There are a lot of IMCA Modified drivers in this area,” said speedway owner Jerry Brown. “They have been asking about sanctioning since I bought the track.”

Promoter is Mike Cannon, whose family built the track 20 years ago.

“We want to give Modified drivers in the area another Friday night option,” Cannon said. “I can remember when area tracks had full fields of Modifieds. That’s what we hope to accomplish again here.”

Bronco re-opened earlier this month and has hosted three sprint car programs as well as regular Tuesday night test and tune sessions.

The quarter-mile clay oval has been completely reworked. Concession stands – which come complete with barbecue – have been updated, as have restrooms and the souvenir stand.

Live music and activities for kids at intermission will be Friday staples at Bronco. A big fireworks display, plus monster trucks, are on the July 7 card.
