By Duane Turner, Mason, MI: With the 2018 racing season set to kick off in less than two weeks, Spartan Speedway is pleased to announce a naming partnership with Corrigan Oil. The track opened in 1956, and was known as Lansing Speedway. Just four years later in 1960, the name was changed to Spartan Speedway. Now, in 2018, with the naming partnership, the track officially becomes Corrigan Oil Speedway.
Corrigan Oil has been family owned and operated since 1958 when Bernie Corrigan started the business with a single service station, and one tow truck. Now, Corrigan Oil has expanded into a family of companies including Corrigan Oil, Corrigan 24 Hour Towing, Corrigan Construction, Corrigan Lubricants, Corrigan Transportation, Corrigan Propane, and Technical Environmental Services.
On the racing side, Corrigan Oil is the official Sunoco Race Gas distributor in Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. With ties in all forms of motorsports, Corrigan Oil has what you need for everything from your Bandolero, to your Late Model at Corrigan Oil Speedway. For more information, you can find Corrigan Oil on the web at www.corriganoil.com.
Corrigan Oil Speedway will continue to be known as “The Track The Stars Call Home”. While it may not yet feel like racing season with the cold weather, the track will host two test and tune sessions this weekend. On Friday, April 20th, the track will be open from 3:00 pm until dusk. Then on Saturday, practice will start at 10:00 am and finish at 3:00pm. The following weekend on Friday, April 27th, will be opening night. ABC Spartan stocks, pony stocks, legends and Bandoleros will take to the speedway to begin the 63rd season of racing on the ¼ mile.
