GILBERTSVILLE – Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway, which has already lost a month of the stock car racing season to the long and wet winter, hopes to finally reopen Saturday.

“We’re going to be there,” co-owner Ronnie Jones said, “if Mother Nature doesn’t knock us out. We hope everybody will come out.”

The 3/8-mile dirt oval has been inactive the past three years and saw limited activity for several years before that.

It was purchased at auction by Jones and partner Jim Hale of Hopkinsville last summer.

A special program was scheduled for March 27-29, but had to be canceled because of weather.

Planned for Saturday is a program of racing under UMP DirtCar sanction featuring Late Model, Modified, Pro (Crate) Late Model and Stock Car divisions.

Grandstand admission will be $15 for adults and $12 for seniors 60 and older. Children 10 and under will be admitted free.

The ticket gate will open at 4 p.m.
