East Bay Raceway Park Prepares For Hurricane Irma, Cancels Saturday September 9, 2017

Due to the threat of Hurricane Irma’s expected impact on the entire state of Florida, we are cancelling races for September 9, 2017. We regret having to do this, but we are more worried about ALL of our racing families being able to take care of their homes and families at this time. We pray that each of you have as little of an impact on your lives as possible. IRMA may move thru and not do anything to our area, but please everyone be cautious and provide as much safety for your family as you can at this time.
