Spud Speedway, closed since 2015, hopes big race will revive track

Troy Haney has spent a lot of time and money preparing Spud Speedway in Caribou for Tuesday night’s Aroostook Federal Credit and Loan Firecracker 200 Pro All Stars Series, or PASS, North Super Late Model race.

Spud Speedway closed after the 2015 season because it was losing money.

It will be the first PASS race at Spud Speedway since 2010.

Haney, who has owned the track since 2009, said even in his best season he lost $25,000.

He hopes this race will trigger interest that could eventually lead to the re-opening of the track for weekly racing. He knows it’s going to be a long process.
