Baer Field Motorsports Park officials announced today that Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP will headline the inaugural race on the new 1/4 mile dirt track under construction within the infield of the track’s current 3/8-mile pavement oval.

The 1/4 mile track adds numerous new possibilities to the existing 3/8 mile paved oval and 1/6 mile dirt track.  A small, specials-only schedule will be announced in the coming weeks for the new track.

It takes a lot of work to construct and operate a new dirt track, but promoter Dave Muzzillo is up to the task.  He has the background and experience of track management and operation with the existing tracks; he also has knowledge of dirt track preparation with the 1/6 mile track.

The race will give Northeastern Indiana race fans an opportunity to see the popular Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP series in their own area.  The new Sprints On Dirt “beyond limits” format of no engine limits and no weight limits was impressive last year .  Competitors and fans alike have embraced the exciting racing it has created.  The top five drivers in 2016 points came from five different segments of sprint car racing the year before, showing the wide spread appeal of SOD.

For the 38th year, the Crystal Motor Speedway/Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP partnership will continue in 2017. SOD is proud to return to Crystal Motor Speedway on three dates.  The SOD season opening race is scheduled for April 29th followed by July 15th, and September 2nd dates.

Crystal Motor Speedway and Engine Pro Sprints On Dirt presented by ARP both hope that Mother Nature is much kinder to them in 2017 than she was in 2016.  SOD suffered five rain outs, three of them at Crystal.  The three SOD rain outs were just a piece of Crystal’s weather woes.  All told, Crystal lost nine events in 2016, eight due to rain and one due to extreme heat.

Long one of the favorite stops each season for SOD competitors, SOD did manage to complete two shows in 2016, even with the three rain outs.  Steve Irwin picked up the win on July 16th.  SOD then finished the 2016 season in spectacular fashion at Crystal with the September 3rd Nitro Black Mike Olrich Memorial Race in support of  Ryan Ruhl dominated the race with his 360 cubic inch motor in front of a full grandstand of enthusiastic fans.
