Future at Saltcity begins with four IMCA divisions

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (March 14, 2024) – While he’s yet to promote his first race at Saltcity Racing, Phil Nightingale has already started looking to the future of the big half-mile dirt race track. Nightingale takes charge of Saltcity Racing-branded programs that feature four IMCA divisions this season at the venerable Kansas State Fairgrounds facility. “My whole life has been in the automotive world,” explained Nightingale, first a spectator and later a competitor at Hutchinson. “The fair board voted in 2022 to tear the track down  but we went to them with a proposal last September.” “I don’t want to see this track die. I want to see it thrive,” the new Saltcity general manager continued. “I want to go back to the fair board in October with a three-year plan for 2025-2027, with proof that drivers and fans will support the track and keep it alive.” Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods run April 26, May 24, June 21, July 19, Aug. 3 and Sept.
