Thompson International Speedway management will celebrate the champions of the 2012 season at the track with banquets on Friday and Saturday evening.
Thompson International Speedway marketing coordinator Jonathan Hoenig said via email Thursday that the schedule is still “actively being worked on and will be available within a couple weeks.”
Thompson Speedway management had previously indicated that they expected a mid-December announcement concerning their 2013 schedule.
Track officials have been quiet about possible major changes to weekly racing at the track in 2013. In October track owner Don Hoenig said he wasn’t sure what the weekly racing schedule at the track could look like. Since then a schedule at the track for 2013 has been a mystery along with what the future holds for the possibility of the creation of a road course at the facility.
Jonathan Hoenig said plans for the new road course project are expected to be announced when the track reveals the 2013 schedule at the facility.
Some parts of next year’s schedule at the track can already be culled through recent announcements.
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour announced last week that the series would compete at Thompson three times in 2013. The division will open its season at Thompson’s Icebreaker weekend April 14 and close its season on Oct. 20 as part of the track’s traditional World Series weekend. The division will also run an event at the track on Thursday Aug. 15.
The Valenti Modified Racing Series has announced three events for 2013 at Thompson. That division will run at the track on Sunday May 19, Thursday July 25 and Saturday Oct. 19 as part of the World Series weekend.
