FEBRUARY 4TH, 2013 (ST. LOUIS, MO) Davenport Speedway owned by Drt Trak Racing Incorporated will drop the green flag on a brand new racing season April 6th, 2013. Located on the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport, IA the semi-banked ¼ mile speedway wrapped by a ½ mile dirt speedway facilitate a packed grandstand for weekly Friday night racing events.
The track originally opened as a ½ mile speedway, lacking the smaller 1/4 mile. In 1953, it became the first Iowa race track to host a NASCAR sanctioned event, holding a race for what is now the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Fifty years later, the pits are now filled with late models, modifieds, street stocks and four stocks anxious to take to the dirt surface.
The new season begins with 3 special events at the top of the racing schedule. Opening night the speedway will be occupied by the Sprint Invaders traveling series. The following weekend brings the Corn Belt Clash Late Model Series and on April 19th the Deery Brothers Summer Series drivers enter the Davenport Speedway gates. The Koehler Electric Season Points opener is scheduled for April 26th.
