Peoria Speedway announced on Monday evening, via its Facebook page, that the facility is undergoing an ownership change. Jason Plumer and Brandon Dean have been co-owners of the central Illinois oval over the past few seasons. However, Plumer is moving on to pursue different opportunities. This leaves Dean solely at the helm, effective immediately.
“I want to thank Jason [Plumer] for all he has done for the Peoria Speedway, and for starting this venture with me,” Dean commented. “Without his racing experience, pairing with my business experience, the Speedway would not have succeeded over the past few years.”
The release on the track’s social media channel went on to reveal that the two owners now have different visions for the future, than the one they once shared. Plumer and Dean met this week and reached an agreement for Dean to assume full ownership. The duo was able to quickly reach an amicable agreement.
Dean is now focused on keeping racing alive at Peoria Speedway for many years to come. As an incentive to get fans out to the track this weekend, the track staff is offering $5 grandstand admission for the racing program on Saturday, May 11.
Typical adult grandstand admission at the oval is $13.
Saturday night’s program is scheduled to include DIRTcar Super Late Models, DIRTcar Modifieds, Crate Modifieds, DIRTcar Street Stocks, and DIRTcar Hornets.
Among the notable program details for this week’s program are the inclusion of time trials for both the DIRTcar Super Late Model and DIRTcar Modified classes.
In addition, the Crate Modified class is reverting back to the 2018 track rules, while also offering an open engine option.
