ACS voted Most Fan Friendly Track of 2015
Saturday January 16, 2016 Adams County Speedway held their annual awards banquet at the Cass County Community Center in Atlantic, Iowa. The evening was sure to be exciting as the Atlantic Fire Department was called to the scene for suspected cooking of too many baked potatoes. Fair board members and volunteers alike braved the screaming alarm to continuing making the finishing touches for the night’s events.
As the doors opened many braved the threat of cold and snow to attend the banquet. Drivers, fans and crews got to gather in mass for the first time in several months since the end of the ACS race season this past September. There was talk in the lobby and at the tables of the excitement or the meal being catered by Wiota Steakhouse and the evenings sure to be interesting entertainment from hypnotist Rick Bultez. Neither disappointed providing a wonderful meal and quality entertainment for the freezing January night.
Champions, drivers and faculty received awards throughout the evening. Many for points accrued throughout the season, best appearing cars, most improved driver, and rookie of the year just to name a few. Billy Rock and Bob Harris ran a great show with Mark Wyman handing out awards and thanking all the recipients.
This year a new award showed up at the banquet to the track itself. Adams County Speedway received the 2015 Most Fan Friendly Track Award from Psycho Billy Cadillac Tour. Showing once again that ACS is about taking care of the racing family every year.
