Saturday's at the Speedway are back. The race track will open for the first Saturday races of the 2022 season this weekend.

Speedway 95 in Hermon is roaring back to life, now that the warmer months are here. Saturday is opening day for the 2022 racing season. The action-packed day includes four classes of racing, including Late Model, Street Stocks, Sport 4, and CageRunner.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the gate. Pits open at 3:30, gates at 5:30, with racing beginning at 7 p.m.

Back in January, Speedway 95 announced that truck racing will return this year. The newly revamped division will take to the track on "Wacky" Wednesday nights. Those interested in racing trucks should read over the new division rules.

Some basics on what trucks can be modified to race include:

  • Trucks must be 1973 or newer.
  • Trucks must be full-size rated.
  • A minimum 115” wheelbase is mandatory.
  • Trucks must have a full stock steel bed, with a tailgate in place, and welded shut.
  • No flatbeds are permitted.
