Unity Raceway:: Opens for the Season

Postby Tom Nolette » Fri Apr 21, 2017 4:34 am

Unity Raceway plans transformation into dirt track in 2018

...The other major stock-car tracks in the state are asphalt, so Fernald said he wanted to do something different.

“I wanted to come up with ideas that will put crowds in the stands and help me pay for the place. We needed something different,” explained Fernald, who expects to “take a lot of heat” for his decision.

Dirt track racing is extremely popular in other parts of the country with National Speedway Directory reporting that there are over 700 tracks in the United States. However, there aren’t any listed in New England.

Fernald said he would be interested in bringing a regional dirt-track race to Unity.

Unity Raceway Opens for the Season

Unity Raceway back open for the season.

The first race of the year got underway at 1:30 on Sunday.

The 35-lap race was a qualifier for the Ikey Dorr Memorial Race, which happens at Speedway 95 in Hermon in October.

This is Unity Raceway’s first full season under the ownership of George Fernhald Junior, who bought the track last summer.
