Changes at Raceway Park in 2011

Donny (pictured above) and Melissa Reuvers will no longer be promoting at Raceway Park in Shakopee (MN).

In a statement on they said it was a difficult decision but financial circumstances made it no longer possible for Donny and Melissa to continue operating Raceway Park.  They want to thank all the drivers, fans, staff and sponsors for their support over the last two years.

Previous owner John Hellendrung is now taking back ownership of Raceway Park in 2011.  He wanted to announce that the 2010 Awards banquet will be held on Saturday January 22nd at Treasure Island.  The driver registration and 2011 rules meeting will be Saturday January 8th at Turtles Bar in Shakopee.

Raceway Park has a history of over 50 years of racing in Minnesota, its a 1/4 mile asphalt oval in Shakopee MN.  I am told that John Hellendrung is dedicated to keeping racing going at Raceway Park as he has in the past and the rumors of selling the property for development are false.

On a personal note, Donny Reuvers with Raceway Park was a sponsor of "Speedtalk on 1360" and couldn't have treated us better, he is well respected as not only a driver, but also a promoter and a great person.  The car counts went WAY up during his two years as promoter and the racing was really good.  We wish Donny luck in whatever he chooses to do, hopefully he can eventually get back to racing full-time with the ASA Midwest tour.
