  • Bronson Speedway opens 2008 stock car racing season

    The folks at Bronson Motor Speedway were all revved up about opening night last week.

    Then came a cold and blustery day Saturday. So much for a warm, balmy opening night.

    At least the wind died down by sunset, and most of the fans came well-prepared –with jackets, blankets, gloves, the whole nine yards.

    Early Sunday morning, there was frost in the Levy County area.

    While the weather did hold down the crowd some, track officials were pleased by the car count and attendence.
