Fairmont Raceway will be open for the 2013 race season
New promoters, Al and Becky Thoreson, are excited to keep Friday night racing in Fairmont.
(Fairmont, Minnesota) The Fairmont Raceway will remain open for the 2013 Race Season. Races are scheduled to begin on Friday, May 3rd and will run every Friday until September. 2013 marks the 48th season Fairmont Raceway will host races at the Martin County Fairgrounds.
Fans can expect to experience the same quality of racing in 2013 with a new emphasis on community engagement. “Fairmont Raceway is the fastest half mile around and brings fun and excitement to many. Our goal is for more members of our community to experience it. We want Fairmont Raceway to be THE place to go on a Friday night,” said Becky Thoreson, new promoter.
Racing is no stranger to the other half of the new promoting pair, Al Thoreson. Al, a native of Fairmont, grew up at the Raceway watching his stepdad, Al Thoms, race. From times in the pit to times cheering on Al from the grandstand, he has many fond memories of Fairmont Raceway. When Al learned of the possibility of the Raceway not being open for racing this season, he knew something had to be done. “The Fairmont Raceway is a staple in our community and I want to make sure it stays that way for years to come,” Al commented.
Becky Thoreson has also spent time at the races and brings a marketing and public relations background to the position. The pair is excited to be a part of the new history of Fairmont Raceway and invite all to join them on Friday nights. For more information, please find us on Facebook or call 507-382-4531.
