GREENE – Action Park East Speedway, the well known local motorcycle racetrack in Greene, has announced it will be changing its July 11 event to Saturday, July 12 at 7 p.m. It will be pack the track night and special $6 adult admissions will be offered to the first 150 fans through the gates.
The track had a great crowd opening day on Saturday, May 24, but had to cut the evening short when a fuse on NYSEG’s power pole coming into the property went faulty and the lights went out. At the time the track did not realize it was a problem with the power companies equipment and was unable to let customers know. Since then the track has had two events on Friday nights, something new that was being tried this year, but has not been able to attract the large audience it had on opening night to its Friday shows, although the weather was very poor both of those events.
