Here Comes The 2018 Racing Season
Posted on Monday, March 05 @ 15:18:26 MST by Bob

DFC Racing It's that time of year again when I can almost smell those racing fumes. Two area tracks will start their 2018 seasons with new ownership and I wish them well. Near the end of the 2017 season a deal was worked out to sell Deerfield Raceway to Don Sharpless. It will now be known as Deerfield Speedway, and more than the name has changed. Don has some pretty big plans for this 1/4 mile bullring including the new Wingless Sprint division. Sadly the Modifieds are now gone, but this place has many other divisions to keep you entertained. The Miller family deserves HUGE credit for running Deefield all these years in a way that not only helped the place survive and thrive, but they made sure it was the most family friendly facility in racing. Hats off to ya Paul and the entire Miller family and track staff. I'm sure gonna miss dealing with Paul but I look forward to giving the same support to Don and his crew. The other track that will start 2018 with new folks holding the keys is Midvale Speedway. While I haven't always had kind words for some of the actions I witnessed there over the years, I've also told everybody I know that Midvale is the nicest facility in the area and the action on the track is great every week. That's saying alot for an asphalt track;-) The Smith family has poured tons of money and sweat into this place in recent years to make it what it is, and the deserve respect and many thanks for their efforts. They handed this beautiful facility over to new owners, John and Kelley Chapman during the off season. Many of those that have been in the background to help this place run smoothly will return in 2018 to help John and Kelly in every way that they can. Both of these tracks will continue to get advertising and coverage here on this website as well.

Hilltop will kick off their season very soon with the same great owner of course. Buck Smitley is one of those track owners that honestly wants to hear any concerns or ideas from the racers and fans. To be perfectly clear, this means either stop and talk to him in person at the track, or give him a call any time. Posting online is no way to get concerns addressed by any track owner, so step up and talk to the man about anything. Buck has always taken the time to listen to anybody that's ever done it the right way. Shucks, he will even personally address your online rant while you're at the track if given the chance but I don't recommend taking that route. ;-) Buck is always looking for ways to speed the show along while putting on the best show possible every week so if you have real suggestions give him a shout. The 2018 tentative schedule has been released and posted below. Some dates are still being discussed but expect some great shows this year on "The Hill" for sure. See ya there!
