SYRA ( Seekonk Youth Racing Association)
It’s easy to get involved in SYRA racing. SYRA racing at Seekonk Speedway offers you a chance to get behind the wheel on a 1/3-mile oval race track. The best thing to do is check out this website and then go visit the Seekonk Speedway track. The quickest way to learn at the track is to talk to the SYRA racers. These are the drivers you will race with every week in and week out, if you decide to start racing. You’ll find that most are very friendly and would welcome you into the sport. As an “entry level” class, you’ll find that there are a lot of “newbie’s” in the pits and they’ll be glad to welcome you into the sport.
