Dundee's Outlaw Speedway plans track improvements

DUNDEE--Outlaw Speedway owner Tyler Siri has announced the dirt racetrack will receive a number of upgrades in the next few months.
Plans include the construction of a higher front straight wall with the included fencing and public address speakers. Other plans include renovation of the existing announcers and scorers rooms as well as many of the sponsor towers.
"When I purchased the facility I knew that there were certain areas that would have to be addressed," said Siri. "I'm pleased to announce that beginning in mid-February we will start construction of a higher concrete front straightaway wall complete with upgraded catch fencing and new P.A. speakers."
The addition of new clay a couple years ago raised the track up three feet or more in places, thus lowering the existing front straight concrete wall. This made the safety fencing and wire rope cables that protect the main grandstand seating area more vulnerable. By adding more height to the concrete wall coupled with the repair work on the fencing and cables it will add stability as well as extra fan and driver safety.
"Since the wall and fencing were originally constructed in the mid-1990s by then track owners, Lin and Cindy Hough, it has taken a beating," Siri mentioned. "Not only has harsh winter weather played a factor in the deterioration of the catch fencing and speaker system, but a number of hard crashes into the wall and fencing have also made it brittle in places."
The first practice sessions of the year are scheduled for April 5 and 12. The gates officially open Saturday, April 13 for the rescheduled Dutch Hoag Memorial event.
