  • Superstitions in focus for Friday the 13th races in Brownstown

    By Kristopher Blankenship

    The 10th week of racing at Fayette County Speedway came on a beautiful June day last Friday night, with cool weather, green grass, a prepared race track and plenty of race cars.

    By all accounts, the perfect night for racing.

    Except, of course, that it was Friday the 13th and everyone knew to expect a big full moon rising from over the backstretch wall.

    Superstition is in the heart of all racers.

  • Racing begins Friday

    Admission is $30 for a pit pass, $10 for ages 13 and older, $5 for children ages 8-12 and free for children 7-and-under who attend with a paying adult.
