KIRKWOOD, NY…Once again Five Mile Point Speedway Figure 8 teams will have a special incentive program in place for their 2005 events. All Figure 8 teams will be eligible for two free pit passes on the night of their events. The first Figure 8 event of the season is slated for Saturday, May 21st.
Any Figure 8 team that letter their car with a NASCAR Nextel Cup race car scheme will be eligible for two free pit passes on the night of their events. Last year several Figure 8 teams took advantage of the incentive package by painting their cars like the cup teams.
Spectators certainly enjoyed the twist as they saw replica painted cars running full speed through the Figure 8 intersection. It made for a lot of fun moments for the spectators and several of the Figure 8 teams had instant fan clubs due to the identification of their car.
Figure 8 teams that are looking to take advantage of this program are asked to contact the speedway offices at (607) 775-5555. Paint schemes must be pre-approved so that duplicate cars are not put together.
The first Figure 8 event of the season will take place on “Pack the Track” night on Saturday, May 21st. That evening grandstand admission will only be $1. The Sportsman will do battle in a 50 lapper along with complete shows of Street Stocks, Pure Stocks and UMP Modifieds. The Vintage Racing Club will also join the activities on that night.
