Fan Appreciation Night set for Cocopah Speedway
Note to racing fans at Cocopah Speedway: Bring your mud shoes.
In what is being billed as “Fan Appreciation Night,” before anybody stands on the gas pedal Saturday in Round 4 of the 2013 Cocopah Speedway Racing Series, all of the cars on hand will be pushed out onto the track in front of the grandstand, the gate below the flag stand will be opened, and fans will be allowed to step down onto the wet, clay racing surface and mingle with the drivers.
“The bottom line is this: If anybody wants to meet their favorite driver, talk with their favorite driver, get an autograph or their photo taken with their favorite driver, this is the opportunity to make that happen,” said Greg Burgess, Cocopah Speedway’s director of operations.
“And once we’re done with that, we will clear the straightaway and get to our racing program.
