GREENE – The well-known Action Park East Speedway in Greene is set to open its doors on May 24 with a special Saturday evening race on the holiday weekend. The event will be billed as the Southern Tier Spring Classic. Over 40 Speedway riders have already signed up to compete, not including competitors for ATV and dirt bike classes which will run prior to the scheduled 7 p.m. start time.
Included in the 40-rider professional speedway field are some huge names that will be making full-time comebacks this year, and will catch the attention of some of the older local fans. Among those big names are six-time New York State and U.S. Open Champion, Warren Diem of Conklin, and multi-time champions and brother act, Tuff and Lenny McBride of Windsor.
