Tell the EPA to Withdraw Its Proposal to Prohibit the Conversion of Vehicles Into Racecars
The American love affair with automobiles includes watching and participating in motorsports. For decades Americans have converted their street vehicles into racecars, from pre-World War II classics to modern era performance cars. It has brought joy and jobs to millions. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued a proposed rule that would do away with this time honored tradition. It would outlaw the conversion of any type of emissions-certified vehicle into a racecar, and make it illegal to sell any emissions-related parts for those cars. The Clean Air Act prohibits the EPA from regulating racecars. Tell EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to remove this provision from the “Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- & Heavy-Duty Engines-Phase 2″ rule.
Work has begun on the scoreboard!
The Huntsville Speedway staff would like to thank everyone that attended the rules meetings, we learned a lot from your input. We are reviewing and adjusting the rules, based on your votes, to better each division.
Rules for the lower divisions are posted, and the upper divisions should be posted within the next week.
We had 8-15 representing each class we plan to run. We hope that everyone in attendance will have their car at the track on opening day. Huntsville Speedway’s future is in the hands of the owners/drivers. With your support, we will do everything possible to keep the track open and provide a great venue for you to enjoy racing.
We plan to have our first practice around the first of March and racing stating in April.

We were just made aware of rumors that the Speedway was not going to open this year. We want to put these rumors to rest. Edger Motorsports, LLC has secured the lease from Martin Pierce until 2035. The track will be open for the 2016 season.
We are very close to finishing up the rules now and will post them soon. Soon after, we will post the schedule. We apologize for not keeping everyone informed on all the behind the scenes details involved to get this track in our name and going.
We would like everyone to realize that we only agreed 90 days ago to take on the adventure, it was not a turn key operation. Due to the track being closed for several years, it is like starting a new business. New license, new accounts, new dealers, new laws, new insurance, new everything.
On the flip side of all of this, we’re very happy about all the volunteer help and positive feedback that we have received from our big racing family. Can’t wait to see a smile on everyone’s face when the first green flag flies for the 2016 season.
We are knocking the dust off a few of the race cars and will be at Village of Providence Sunday from 1pm to 5pm. This is to bring awareness that Huntsville Speedway will be up and running for the 2016 season. Bring the kids by, take their picture in one of the race cars and enjoy the car show while you are there.
Thanks to everyone that helped with the clean up. The facility is getting better, but we still have a lot of work to go.
