Do you have your own website, www.whatever? Use it, or ride along with the old one, it's your business, but I don't think I would have changed the name, just sayin. Bob

Bad deal to change the name of the speedway. Bloomington Speedway went through this name changing a few years ago and the track almost went under. Any ads that the people see about Rock Crest Raceway will wander where this track is located. You can't improve the track by changing it's name. Vernon is a good track and all it needs is a good promoter that will fix it up some.

Agree 100%. North Vernon it is!

I believe the Facebook page is under Rock crest Road, I don't think most of us would have searched this to find the speedway. North Vernon Speedway would be preferred.
Also get a Twitter account and a website. Maintain them often, update results, track sponsors, schedules, events on all social media outlets.

I wish the new owner luck. I'm a bit surprised at some of the comments here though. I think some constructive criticism would be helpful. The owner said someone is manning the track phone 24/7. Some tracks do change names, but does it actually change the racing, I know in my area it hasn't.

Truth be told, this racetrack was bought out to be shut down. We have had nothing but negative comments about the name change and we do understand. However, the track had started to get a bad reputation and the new owner had requested the name be changed and race day moved to Friday. Guys, our family is the last Hope to even keep this racetrack alive. Just for that chance we have been blessed. We know the frustration and we’re trying to figure this all out. Since the previous promoter there have been many, kinks, in the system. All that we ask is for a chance here. Again our Facebook page is called rock crest raceway. Track phone is manned literally 24/7 with any questions. Working on a website currently and will also look into other social media outlets. Thanks.
