Hamlin Speedway 2024 is going to be a barnburner!

We are three weeks away from Bug Day scheduled for Saturday April 20th, weather permitting. Several other tracks are preparing grounds, running practices, and ramping up already for their 2024 season. Hamlin Speedway is located 35 miles north of Stroudsburg and Interstate 80, but it can seem like far more with the temperature differences. It is much colder, and the snowmelt can run into March.

Track and ground preparation will begin next week or as soon as the weather permits, with days of rain forecasted this week. Loads of clay are scheduled for delivery this week by Frantz Trucking. The annual paperwork is being processed and the scoring database set up. We need all drivers to submit the
Driver Profile-Tax Info Sheet ASAP including your transponder number and all those needing the Minor Release Form. Inspection Forms will be available on Bug Day.

To clarify the GAMBLERS: Each week has a SPECIAL by division with a

The GAMBLERS option is available to all drivers racing this SPECIAL and requires an additional $50 to be paid at registration. This option must be taken prior to the PILL DRAW for that event. The GAMBLERS, if taken, and if that driver wins the Feature event – the payout for 1st place, based on car count, will double$. If 20 or more cars entered – payout: $500 x 2 = $1000 to Win or Less than 20 cars – payout: $300 x 2 = $600 to Win. Only the winner’s payout will double.

Please Note: The SPECIALS are offered for all divisions in various forms, from $500/$300 To Win, Nationals, Speedweek, and driver introductions, to four Xcel Chassis Tour Events for the Xcel 600 Modifieds. Everyone is included in our barnburner in 2024!
