Spectator Races and a Marching Band Added to Claremont Speedway’s
Saturday Night Line-up
CLAREMONT, NH (May 8, 2002): The fans at Claremont Speedway will get a
couple of added bonuses for their admission this Saturday night. The
track is bringing an event that has proven very popular at a number of
other venues throughout the country: ‘spectator races.’
Fans can get out of their seats and into their own cars to compete on
the 1/3 mile racing facility. Each entry is paired off with another
entry and competes for one lap. The winner advances to the next round
until there is a final winner crowned ‘champ for the day’.
Basically, if a car is street legal, registered and licensed and driven
to the track on the highway, it can compete in the spectator races.
Claremont Speedway recognizes safety issues and will require competitors
to wear a helmet with a functional chinstrap. Lap and shoulder seat
belts are also required to be in proper working order. Complete rules
are available on the track’s website, www.claremontspeedway.com, or call
The first twenty entries will compete on May 11th. The number of entries
has been limited to assure that the show moves along in a timely manner,
as there is more on the calendar for the night. There is a $20 entry fee
that will comprise the purse.
The Stevens High School marching band will make an appearance before the
night’s features take to the track. The track has worked closely with a
number of school bands during the past few months to provide an audience
and a facility to project the talents of these young musicians.
Following the Stevens High School marching band, Smith Buick and
Dartmouth Motors presents six feature events including the popular
NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Modifieds.
The racing action starts at 6:06pm. Arrive early and grab a great seat
for the whole family with the NEW Family Four-Pack (2 Adults, 2Kids) for
JUST $20. For more information, call 603-543-3160 or log on to
