Over fifteen drivers are getting ready for next Sunday's long-awaited opening race at Adirondack International Speedway. After its tax bill silenced the speedway back in 2009, the roaring of the engines and the screeching of the tires are back.
"It's just been a long struggle. And I knew we'd get here, but I didn't know when," said Samuel Yancey, track manager.
Yancey says it took a lot of hard work to get to this point.
"We pulled about 1,300 tons of sand off the track, swept the track, brushed the track, and now the cars are out here," said Yancey.
The opening race on October sixth will likely be the first of many races to come next year.
