Changes at Raceway Park in 2011
In a statement on www.goracewaypark.com 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.
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.
