99.1 THE WHALE'S FIGURE 8 TEAMS TO TAKE TO THE SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY FOR THE FIRST OF NINE 2006 RACES AT FIVE MILE POINT SPEEDWAY.

KIRKWOOD, NY - The wild and wacky 99.1 THE WHALE'S Figure 8 race teams will take to the speedway this Saturday at Five Mile Point Speedway. This will be the first of nine races this season for the popular racing class. Race time is 6 p.m.

The WHALE Figure 8 racing action is a fan favorite as race teams actually race in a figure 8 pattern on the speedway. The crossroad in the center always provides for excitement as drivers have to decide to stop or drive through on coming traffic.

The WHALE Figure 8 program is just a portion of the huge night planned this Saturday at the historic quarter mile oval. The 3rd annual Giant Markets “Pack the Track” night will see grandstand tickets lowered to only $1 for this once a year promotion.

If you’re a baseball fan the value is even better as the first 1,000 spectators entering the grandstand area will receive two tickets to Sunday afternoon’s Binghamton Mets game. This value is tremendous as area sports fans can take in the Saturday night race and enjoy afternoon baseball for the cost of $1.

Joining the WHALE Figure 8 racing will be double IMCA Modified features along with full programs for the Sportsman, Pure Stocks, 600 c.c. Modifieds and Legends Cars. Race time is 6 p.m. but fans will want to get to the speedway early for the free Binghamton Met tickets.
