Speedway 51 powered by the Autosaver Group is ready to unveil a brand new division to their Saturday night arsenal in 2019. The Bone Stock division will be making their racing debut on Saturday night, May 25, 2019. “This class will offer something that people have been asking about for a long time”, stated Speedway 51 promoter, Dick Therrien. “Having a novice class that will be extremely affordable and will be only is for new racers that have not raced before in anything except an Enduro. We believe this will bring lots of new faces to our program. This will give men and women the opportunity to get their feet wet in a very inexpensive way. The cars are totally stock, must have a VIN number and original dash, and only expenses will be safety equipment and their roll cage. A racer should be able to put together a car for about $500 to $750, and in some cases, even less! When you read the rules you will see what we mean.
