With the long offseason coming to a close on the local racing scene, Seekonk Speedway is ready to kick of their 69th season with a 2 day event.
Saturday, May 3rd will be the Classic & Custom Car Show & Go. Starting a 9am, custom cars, trucks and motorcycles will be on display for all to see, with the Mass Cruisers on hand. At 1, the cars are invited to journey onto the 1/3 mile oval for the burn out drags.
Along with the car show, the first automotive swap meet of the season will be open to the public for those looking for that certain something for their ride. There will also be a car corral for cars for sale.
While all of this is going on, the track will be full of action as the stars and cars will be in full mode during their final practice session before kicking the racing season off on Sunday. All of the action on Saturday is free admission.
