Donny Reuvers, Martinsville NASCAR preview

Raceway Park owner Donny Reuvers was a great interview on "Speedtalk on 1360."

He said his main focus for 2010 will be Raceway Park but is not ruling out racing the full ASA Midwest tour schedule. He will run the first couple races and make a decision from there.

Raceway Park is adding quite a few Friday night shows in 2010 and will have a 10 race schedule with the crowd favorite Flat Track Motorcycles. Enduro drivers also expressed interest in racing all the Friday night shows.
