Yakima Speedway is working hard to keep fans in the seats

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Yakima Speedway is turning 46 this year and is still able to pack the stands.

Even though the economy has taken its toll, they have been working hard to keep races coming to the valley.

The general manager at the speedway says they've been taking a very aggressive role in counter-acting the bad economy. Discount ticket sales, and programs have helped attract fans.

"It's important to us that the Yakima Valley and surrounding areas are able to come and spend the time with us that way they're able to get a venue that they can afford to come out to, they can have a good time with," said General Manager Steve Conduff.

Conduff says that he sees a lot of regulars coming back week after week and knows that the speedway is a big part of Yakima.

Race day is usually on Saturdays and they encourage everyone to come out and enjoy.
