Portland, ME – Northern New England’s oval track stock car season is several weeks away, as the Daytona International Speedway gates swing open for the start of the NASCAR season.
Just days after the big 500 in Florida, the 18th annual edition of the region’s biggest wintertime stock car racing showcase, Racin’ Preview 2011 at the Portland Expo, opens its doors Friday, February 25 and Saturday, February 26.
A newcomer to the show this year is the New Meadows Ice Racing Association.
