OK, Greg Burgess is no mad scientist, but the director of operations at Cocopah Speedway is starting to see a transformation take place at the Somerton oval, a transformation he is orchestrating not with a scalpel, electrodes and a lightning bolt, but with an eye on the future.
The track is in the midst of a three-year conversion, in which two classes in the Cocopah Speedway Racing Series, the Factory Stocks and Street Stocks, will become the IMCA Hobby Stocks and IMCA Stock Cars, respectively.
The Street Stock conversion is not scheduled to be official until January 2015, but as Burgess noted after racing last weekend, “I believe the transformation has already begun.”
