BAPS Motor Speedway is a 4/10 mile oval dirt racetrack located in York Haven, PA. Since 1963, BAPS Motor Speedway has been a weekly destination for auto race fans near and far. Formerly called Susquehanna Speedway, 2018 renamed the iconic track BAPS Motor Speedway as part of a 5-year naming rights deal with BAPS Auto Paints in York, PA.
Scott Gobrecht purchased the speedway in September 2015. Immediately after taking ownership, Gobrecht and full-time General Manager, Kolten Gouse, focused on infrastructure improvements for visiting race teams, employees and overall fan experience. Highlights include new spectator bleachers, track surface reconfiguration, safety lights, hospitality suites and paved walking areas.
Although facility upgrades will be an ongoing necessity, BAPS Motor Speedway is now equipped to showcase national racing events with a fan base that is willing to travel. The speedway’s ideal racing size, safety upgrades, and centralized location have gained notice from several touring circuits with a desire to include BAPS Motor Speedway in their annual racing schedules.
Thank you to our weekly division series sponsors: BAPS Auto Paints Super Sportsman, Morgan Paving/Aqua Pools Street Stocks, Creekside Auto Sales Late Models, Superior Homes Extreme Stocks, and the Sprintcarunlimited.com 410 Sprints!
In the event of rain or other conditions, it may be necessary for speedway management to adjust the order of the event schedule, length of races, practices and qualifying sessions, or to stop the program completely. Should this occur, the management shall make every effort to resume the schedule in a timely fashion if conditions improve. It is their sole discretion as to what decision they make and their decision is final.
RAIN CHECK POLICY
Cancellation or delay of an event will be the speedway management’s decision.
The ticket stub shall be used as the rain check. In the event that a race is cancelled, rain checks will only be honored if all qualifying races for all divisions have not been completed. If all qualifying races have been completed, the event will be deemed official and rain checks will not be honored. Rain checks for the grandstands will be honored for one of the events in the next 30 days of equal or lesser value. If the rain check is used for an event of greater value, then the holder will be responsible for making up the difference in value.
BAPS Motor Speedway is not responsible for lost or misplaced rainchecks. No exceptions.
The armband with the appropriate numbers shall be used as the rain check. In the event that an event is cancelled, rain checks will only be honored if all qualifying races for all divisions have not been completed. All races completed will be scratched and will not be rescheduled (EIRI – special events). Rain checks for the pits will be honored for one of the events in the next 30 days of equal or lesser value. If the rain check is used for an event of greater value, then the holder will be responsible for making up the difference in value.
If the event is rained out or cancelled after all qualifying races have been completed, then the remaining feature events will be run at a later announced date. This date will probably be the next race event scheduled and the make-up features will be first on the program (before any qualifying heats scheduled for the regular event). Only drivers qualified for the cancelled event will be eligible for the make-up feature (EIRI – in case of an injury to the qualified driver). Rain checks will not be issued for events when the make-up features of any division are held.
FEATURE EVENT COMPLETION
One lap past the halfway point in a feature shall constitute a complete race in the event a race is stopped due to bad weather. If a race is stopped by use of the red flag and is ruled complete (no matter how many laps are complete), the finishing positions will be paid according to the last officially scored lap by the leader prior to the red flag.
