Revised Schedule of Events

Poor spring weather causing construction delays has forced the decision to modify the 2018 Event Schedule of events at the Onawa Racing and Events Complex.

“Although the facility is now about 95% ready, the 5% remaining to be completed is crucial before opening,” said Consultant Scott Gardner. “An incredible amount of work has been completed in the last six months and to make haste decision to open before final important steps are completed would be nearly insane” continued Gardner.

Recently completed projects include; the installation of the brand new Accutime Timing System and LED Scoreboards, the P.A. System, the installation of the ET and registration buildings, construction of the safety/burnout wall, additional fencing, etc. Remaining work includes; pit roadway shoulder and apron finishing, general grounds drainage, track surface preparation (rubber being applied through a specific plan for new track surfaces), concession kitchen facilities, spectator entrance roadways, etc. While the facility will not be prefect when it’s opened; it’ll be a great starting point moving forward.

The planned opening date is Saturday, June 2 (weather and facility pending). The updated schedule is listed below.
