After a long stretch of Friday night racing, Mother Nature rose her ugly head last Friday night forcing Big Diamond Speedway to cancel. Racing returns to the 4/10’s mile dirt oval this Friday August 9th with a big night in store for the fans.
It will be Hunt the Giant night on Friday as well as USS Achey night with live music and free ice cream being provided to the fans before the night’s racing get going.
