RacingJunk partners Alaska Raceway & New Smyrna Speedway are two of six racetracks from across the nation advancing to the final round of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Advance My Track Challenge. Up for grabs is $50,000 to invest in their track and community.
The Advance My Track Challenge kicked off on March 23. Over the past month each track had to utilize fan voting to advance. The top six racetracks, including Alaska and Raceway and New Smyrna Speedway have garnered enough votes to move to the final round of voting which takes place on May 9 and 10 at advancemytrack.com. Fans can vote three times each day.
Alaska Raceway Park, located in Palmer, Alaska is a motorsports complex conducting events from Mother’s Day to Labor Day. If crowned the winner, Michelle Maynor, owner and race director hopes to provide accessibility to handicap fans, build a playground, and improve equipment to enhance the racers and fan experience.
There to give Alaska Raceway Park a little competition is another fellow partner of ours, New Smyrna Speedway. Located just five miles west of New Smyrna Beach, FL New Smyrna Speedway is a high-banked, half mile paved oval track serving the community for over fifty years. If chosen as the winner, New Smyrna hopes to purchase a new generator system and electronic timing and scoring system.
