Hartford Speedway and Sprints On Dirt team up for 4 races in 2017


Indianapolis, IN (December 9, 2016) Hartford Speedway, Hartford,

Michigan, and Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP have reached

an agreement for four races in 2017.


Sprints On Dirt enjoys tremendous interest at Hartford Speedway. The

Hartford Speedway Facebook page noted that: our fans love SOD and have

proved to be our best crowd turnouts 3 seasons in a row.


Hartford Speedway and Sprints On Dirt are finalizing details regarding

the four-race schedule; additional information will be released at a

later date.


The historic Western Michigan speedway has underground a major

reconfiguration. The track was turned from a 1/2 into a nonsymmetrical

3/8 that should prove to be challenging and fast. It will maintain its

100-120 width. To get this accomplished, the former turns three and

four of the 1/2 mile were moved toward turns one and two. The track is

not at finish grade or race ready yet, but it will have some banking,

although not as much as the old 3 and 4 turns.


Track owner/promoter Tim Dibble said: High banking and symmetrical track equals foot to the

floor racing and that's not what we are going for in this change.

Dibbles approach blends perfectly with SODs beyond limits format to

make driver skill a bigger factor.
