Wrenchead.com National Dirt Track Series

| March 10, 2000
PACE Motor Sports released a revised schedule for its Wrenchead.com National Dirt Track Series, sanctioned by Formula USA. The updated schedule features two new venues: The Red Mile in Lexington, Kentucky, scheduled for August 19, and the Portland Speedway Half Mile in Portland, Oregon, scheduled for September 9.

Pursuant to an inspection of Hialeah Park in Hialeah, Florida, this past Tuesday, PACE Motor Sports Vice President Mike Kidd announced that the venue has been dropped from the schedule.

“It [Hialeah Park] just didn’t meet our criteria,” Kidd said. “We have a very clear vision of where we want the Wrenchead.com National Dirt Track Series to go.”
