It all kicks off April 24 with the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints, Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints and the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks.
“As we all know last year was a huge challenge for everyone with the pandemic impacting everything we do and Fremont Speedway was no different. But thanks to the cooperation from the race teams, fans, our staff and marketing partners and great communication and cooperation with the Sandusky County Health Department we were able to hold 14 events. We are all hoping we can get back to a full schedule in 2021. Of course much is dependent on what restrictions are put in place by the government, but nonetheless, we are excited to get back to racing,” said Ryan Schiets, Director of the Sandusky County Agricultural Society’s Speedway Committee.
The Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads AFCS Presented by the Baumann Auto Group will kick off eight events at “The Track That Action Built” for the 410 sprints on May 1. It will also be the first of nine NAPA of Bryan AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales events for the 305 sprints.
Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will visit Fremont Speedway for the 128th time on Saturday, June 12 as part of the Ohio Sprint Speedweek which features eight events over nine days across the Buckeye state. The All Stars will wrap up their season along with Fremont Speedway’s year with the 14th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 8 and 9.’
The FAST 410 winged sprint cars will visit Fremont Speedway on May 29, July 31, Aug. 14 and Sept. 18 with the non-winged BOSS series coming to town on May 29, Aug. 14 and Sept. 18.

“Of course with the pandemic the schedule…including series and divisions…is subject to change. We could see race start times change as well depending on Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s curfew. But, we are confident the race teams and fans will adapt with us and support us like they did last year,” said Schiets.
