It may be hard to believe now, but the 2019 racing season will be here before too long. Hilltop Speedway has always kicked off the action early, and this year is no exception. You never want to miss a night of racing at Hilltop and you may need to dress warm for some of the early events but it will be worth it. The entire schedule will have plenty of great shows as always, but I'll cover some highlights here. They will start the racing on March 16th with an Enduro event at 2:00pm. The following week on March 23rd will be an open test and tune day from noon til 4pm. This practice is open to all race cars of course. Things will really heat up on March 29th when the official season will begin with all divisions except Mini-Wedges taking to the track. Then on April 5th the Renegades Of Dirt Modifieds come to town for the King Of The Hill show. The Modifieds will be chasing $2,000 to win on that night. You sure as hell don't want to miss the show on April 19th as Holmes Tire brings you the Jeff Norris Memorial Race where they honor the man that turned an overgrown junkyard into the Hilltop Speedway we enjoy today. Late Models will be racing for $2,000 and with some extra talent in the area that week this should be an awesome show. On July 12th New Fast Motorsports will present the Mini Stock Nationals with a HUGE payout yet to be announced. Last year this show paid $5,000 to win! On July 26th The Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week event will pay $3,000 to win and $400 to start the 30 lap feature. Fast qualifier will pick up an extra $100 for the efforts that night also. There's plenty more great shows on the schedule and some others still being planned so stay tuned folks. Hilltop is the place to be for the very best door to door action in the area without a doubt. Now is the time to make your plans to make the trip to Millersburg every Friday night. As a nice bonus you're bound to see my smiling face there.
