Chateau Speedway has been put in the position to determine if next week’s 2019 Season Opening activities are going to be possible.  Unfortunately the decision was made to delay everything one week.   A wet snowy Spring already had the track behind schedule on the upgrades to the facility, but plans were still to be able to open on time with Test and Tune on April 30th and the first race May 3rd.  However this weekend snow and rain along with the wet forecast for much of the next week made it obvious the Test and Tune was not going to happen and completion of other upgrades was not likely to be done in time for Friday.  Not the least of these upgrades is the repairs to the fence in front of the grandstand.   Fans may recall the fence was not straight and jutted in and out in front of the fans.  Much of the fence was taken down this Spring and new posts have been put in but the wet weather has prevented the reinstalling of the fencing and the restraining cables.  With the wet weather preventing that work cars can not be on the Speedway for obvious insurance and safety reasons. 

The Track will now host a Test and Tune on Tuesday Night May 7th from 5-9.  Pit admission will be $30 per car (including driver and pit crew), Grandstands will be open for Free for anyone wishing to come out and watch.  The 2019 Racing Season will Officially get underway on Friday Night May 10th at 7:15.
