With all of the offseason updates nearly complete, and with much anticipation, Wiscasset Raceway will finally open its 2008 season this Saturday afternoon with Opening Day presented by Lester Morse Auto Sales of Wiscasset. The finishing touches are being put in place for what track owner Doug White is counting on as a comeback season for "Maine's Center of Speed".

The facility has undergone a face lift over the winter months and through the spring with fresh paint, many more sponsor billboards and banners, an updated race program, and more fan friendly amenities, plus a larger staff of employees and volunteers ready to greet fans coming through the gates this weekend. Many more changes have been made behind the scenes to make things easier for the drivers and crews and to help run a safer and more competitive show for everyone. As an added feature, Wiscasset Raceway will broadcast its feature races this season over ESPN radio 1160 AM and also broadcast at the track over a special scanner frequency for fan convenience.

The opening day program will feature Wiscasset's six weekly racing series divisions: The Clark's Car Crushing Prostocks; Smith Construction Late Model Sportsman; Unicel Super Streets; Keystone Automotive Strictly Streets; Aable Auto Parts Mini Stocks and the White & Bradstreet Mini Trucks. Pit gates will open at 9:00am Saturday morning with practice running from 10:30 am – 12:30pm followed by manditory division by division driver meetings. Grandstand gates will open at 12:00 noon and the green flag will fly on the 2008 season at 2:00pm.
