Frequently Asked Questions:

When do pit gates open? Check the official speedway schedule for gate times.

Where do I go when I arrive? The pit gate will be the first place you go to sign into the race track.  After that you move into the infield of the speedway to unload.  Once unloaded you may head to technical inspection in the white infield garage and then prepare for practice.

Will there be practice time? Yes.  The Open-Ontario cars will be part of the regular practice rotation.

How much does it cost? Cost varies by event.  During the regular season entry into the infield is $25 per person at the back gate.  There is also a $25 transponder event registration which can be done at tech inspection (note: teams which filed an intent to compete do not pay this transponder registration).  The Pumpkin Smasher event has different, often lower event costs.

Can we camp? Yes.  Camping is free of charge behind the back straight at this event.

Is Delaware Speedway planning to start a four-cylinder series? Delaware Speedway has already started a four-cylinder division!  The newly introduced Bone Stocks run one Saturday a month and operate similar to the Enduro races of the 1990′s.  Occasionally these drivers do join into the Open-Ontairo races if they meet minimum standards.  Because of their strong success, the track is looking into the possibility of holding more Open-Ontario events throughout the season.
