McCorkell reaches agreement to promote at Fairmont

Wed 10-10-2018

FAIRMONT - Former Jackson Speedway promoter Jon McCorkell and the Martin County Fair Board have reached an agreement for McCorkell to promote races at Fairmont Raceway for the 2019 season.

The plan is to for the track to race on Saturday nights, running IMCA A Mods, Sport Mods, Stock Cars, Hobby Stocks and Sport Compacts.

McCorkell will also continue to work at Jackson Motorplex and is hoping to work with Jackson to have some IMCA races that can possibly tie into the Fairmont races.

A two-day show may be scheduled in April in Fairmont, with weekly Saturday Night racing to start Memorial Day weekend.

The tentative schedule is for the track to not race on June 29 in hopes of running a special on July 3. Races are planned for Friday night during the Martin County Fair.

Another possibility is building a go-cart track on the inside of turns 1 and 2 with the thought of running go-carts Saturday afternoons before the IMCA races that night.
