TULSA, Okla. — Changes are coming to Tulsa Speedway. Co-owner Keith Haney has taken over daily operations of the speedway to help partner Todd Martin, and they are instituting several improvements to ensure a successful season for fans and competitors.
Plans are underway to construct a new building to house new restrooms, full concessions, merchandise, ticketing/will call and office complex. New track equipment along with a new electrical grid will ensure generators aren’t needed. The partners believe to run an efficient facility these things needed to be done just like at its sister track Tulsa Raceway Park.
Track improvements are also planned. A new clay surface will replace the present clay on the quarter-mile oval, and additional lighting will be added in turns two and three. Improvements in the pit area are also planned with new weight scales, grassing, parking etc.
All of the planned construction has delayed the release of this season’s racing schedule. Racing is expected to start on March 18 with open testing all classes weather and construction permitting. Opening night is scheduled for March 25 with Classic Chevrolet Friday Night Lights Opening Night, and then, April 1 with the ASCS Sooner Region sprint season opener. A full schedule will be released in the coming weeks.
The track is also in search of a new general manager.
