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 RacingAwareness.com. Ryan Ruhl dominated the race with his 360 cubic inch motor in front of a full grandstand of enthusiastic fans.
