Seekonk Speedway Announces 9th Annual Open Wheel Wednesday

Seekonk, MA — With the 2013 schedule nearing completion, Seekonk Speedway has announced that the 9th Annual Open Wheel Wednesday will be held on Wednesday, July 17th. This has become one of the most anticipated dates on the calendar for any open wheel fan and competitor.
