After four long months, the roar of engines returns to Meridian Speedway Saturday for the first of two pre-season Test and Tune events, according to a Meridian Speedway news release.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. drivers from all divisions are invited to take shakedown laps around the quarter-mile track. The event is free for the audience and $25 for drivers.
This is the public's first chance of the season to sneak a peek at their favorite drivers and get up to speed on off-season changes around the track, affectionately known as the "Concrete Jungle."
The second Test and Tune event is the following Saturday, April 1, during the same times.
The Meridian Speedway, a NASCAR Home Track, will launch the 2017 season April 8 with the PEPSI Season Opener, featuring the Royal Purple Modifieds, College of Western Idaho Supers, Teleperformance Claimers, CWI Tuners and 6Shooters.
Tickets are $11 for adult general admission, $8.50 for military and seniors 62, $6.50 for children seven and older, and free for children six and under. Family passes are $30 and include two adult tickets and up to four tickets for children ages 7 to 11.
