From snow, to rain, to three straight Nor’easters, it has been a difficult go of it to prepare the facility to open for it’s first test and tune session.

Bethel Speedway general manager George Van Arsdall, Jr. stated,”It’s been a very slow process. Mother Nature has been relentless this March and April.
