Another Big Year On The Horizon at Plymouth Motor Speedway




Plymouth, IN - The third season of Plymouth Motor Speedway’s return to pavement is scheduled to be yet another big season at the 3/8ths mile.


Six weekly divisions will run for points in 2024, with each division being featured throughout the season.  The Outlaw Super Late Models will once again be the premier division, one of very few tracks in the area that still run them weekly.  Modifieds have been added to the weekly points program, while Street Stocks, Front Wheel Drives, Factory Fords, and Hornets return to the card for the season.


It all starts on Saturday, April 6 with the Fools 200 Enduro before open house for race teams on Friday, April 12.  Points racing starts the next night, April 13 with opening night featuring all six weekly divisions.  It is the first of just three nights during the year where all six divisions will be racing.


The Grand Slam Series returns to Plymouth in 2024, but with a new format.  After previously being run as four races, this year’s Grand Slam will be just three races with no progressive payout.  Payout for each race will be released soon.


The Grand Slam Series opens up on Saturday, June 1 with Street Stocks and Hornets joining the card.  They will also close out the month of June with the second race on June 29 with Modifieds and Hornets.  The Grand Slam finale is scheduled for Saturday, August 17 with Street Stocks and Hornets once again joining the night’s program.


That is just the beginning of the marquee races at Plymouth in 2024.  The Home Run Street Stock special returns for a second year on Saturday, July 6 for a $10,000 to win Street Stock event.  Racers from all over the country turned out for the inaugural race on the 4th of July weekend last year, a race won by local favorite Austin Maynard.


Additionally, the Jeff Anderson Memorial returns for a second year as a $10,000 to win Late Model Sportsman event.  Now dubbed The Sandlot 88, the race honors Jeff Anderson, father of local Sportsman racer and past NASCAR Drive For Diversity participant, Paige Rogers.  Jeff Ganus took the inaugural event in 2023.


Joining the card for The Sandlot 88 is the Mid American Racing Series, who will make their first-ever appearance at Plymouth and their first race in Indiana since 2017 at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.  


After crowning a season champion at Plymouth last year, the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series returns on Saturday, July 15.  Florida’s Davey Hamilton, Jr took the win in last year’s race over Jason Blonde and Plymouth’s own Tyler Roahrig.


The Outlaw 350 Supermodified Series makes their first-ever trip into Indiana with a race at Plymouth on Saturday, May 11.  They will be a part of Open Wheel Extravaganza, which will also see the Illini Midgets make their only appearance of 2024.


Track champions for all six divisions will be crowned in Saturday, August 24.  The Plymouth Motor Speedway Showdown is scheduled for Friday-Sunday, September 13-15 as the kickoff to #ToplessSZN in the area.  The 2024 Plymouth Motor Speedway season comes to an official end on October 26th with the Fall Enduro 200.
