It’s racing season once again and Salmon Run Mall will host the Can Am Speedway Mall Car Show the week of April 9th through Sunday, April 15th.
Can Am Speedway has teamed up with the Children’s Miracle Network and will host a fun meet-and-greet event on Saturday, April 14th from noon to 2 p.m. at Salmon Run Mall. Drivers will be on hand to sign autographs, hand out goodies and the Children’s Miracle Network will have information, as well as some of the local Miracle Families!
The Can Am Speedway is a half-mile dirt track racing facility located in Lafargeville, NY. Local businessman, Tyler Bartlett, purchased the facility during this past off-season and hopes to take Can Am to the next level.
Can Am features stock car racing every Friday night, which consists of five divisions – the DIRT Car 358 Modifieds, the DIRT Car Sportsman, Pro Street Stocks, Thunder Stocks and Rookie Sportsman. Can Am pays out a weekly purse of $12,000 and features some of the best dirt racetrack drivers in the region. Competitors range in age from early teens to their 60’s!
Can Am also features Go-Kart Racing every Saturday at the track, featuring 10 classes of specially prepared go-karts made just for dirt track racing. Fans are admitted for free to go kart races. Kids as young as five years old compete in go kart racing and are just as competitive as the adults are! Kids race for trophies and adults race for a small purse each week. Many of the stock car drivers at Can Am got their start with go kart racing!
The 2018 Racing Season begins May 4th and May 5th with a full schedule of stock car and go kart racing so be sure to bring the whole family! A visit to the Can Am Speedway is a fun and affordable family event!
