Racing resumes Friday at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville with all classes running. A new promotion this year allows fans to come down to the track at intermission to meet UMP Modified drivers for autographs and photos.
This weekend also includes quarter-midgets from I-70 QMA and the High School Pro 4 Program.
Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach will hold its season opener event Friday featuring all classes running, plus a kids Easter Egg Hunt and a chance to meet the Easter Bunny.
Wet weather wiped out the racing last week, so Highland Speedway is scheduled to run a full program Saturday. The night also includes a Bunny Hop and Kids Dash for Cash.
