Super DIRT Week at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse comes to an end this year, but it won’t be leaving Central New York: on Wednesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that $5 million from New York State will be invested in the completion of Glenn Donnelly’s Central New York Raceway Park in Central Square in Oswego County. That investment will get the track ready for a spring 2016 opening and get it ready to host Super DIRT Week in 2016.
“We keep Super DIRT Week,” said Cuomo. “We don't want to lose the economic engine of the racing industry.”
The facility will include a 1/2-mile synthetic dirt oval, a 2.2-mile road course, NASCAR style garages, VIP suites, a full service restaurant and full television and radio production studio.
“We are pleased that we were chosen as the future site of Super DIRT Week,” said CNYRP President Donnelly, who also manages Rolling Wheels Raceway Park in Elbridge, NY. “We look forward to working with World Racing Group and to continue to make Super DIRT Week the biggest event in dirt racing.”
