Officials at the Hamilton County Speedway driven by Spangler Automotive announced today that start times for Saturday night racing programs will move one half-hour later to 7:30 p.m.

“With warmer weather during late spring and summer, the later start will help fans avoid the heat and sun. Plus this will make for less stress on the racing surface,” said promoter Todd Staley. ‘We run a quick and efficient program, so we’ll still get people on the road at a decent hour.”

Gates will open at 5 p.m. each night with the drivers meeting at 6:50 and hot laps at 7:10 p.m. with green flag racing to follow.

Opening in July 1910, the Hamilton County Speedway is the oldest speedway in the state of Iowa. In 1938, work began on the current location at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds. The semi-banked half-mile dirt track was completed in the spring of 1939, and the first races were held on the track in September of that year.

The Hamilton County Speedway driven by Spangler Automotive is located off of US 20 at exit 140, then 1.2 miles north, then 0.5 mile east on Bank St., then 0.4 mile south on Bluff St. in Webster City, Iowa (1200 Bluff St, Webster City, IA 50595).
