JBR ANNOUNCES SWITCH TO SATURDAY NIGHTS
(April 21, 2005)
JBR is pleased to announce the tentative 2005 Champion Speedway schedule and a move back to Saturday Nights for speedway at the historic venue.
All events are planned for Saturday evenings with the exception of the final two meetings which will be rounds 3 and 6 of The US Open Speedway Championships and will take place on the last Sunday in August and first Sunday in September. JBR had a great amount of success running Saturday Night Speedway at Champion from 1997-2002 and feels that a move back will help to increase attendance again and make it easier on out of town riders.
The move comes at the right time with the announced closing of Champion's Saturday night competition, Tioga Motorsports Park, and JBR's decision to rent out it's other facility, Action Park East. JBR is confident that a non-conflicting probable 11 event schedule that will mesh perfectly with the Champion Schedule will be released shortly by Donavon Dorsey for Action Park East.
This is great news for East Coast Fans and Racers!!
Several more exciting announcements will be coming soon!!
