5 Flags Speedway brings in more exciting racing action for the 2023 season, with the return of ARCA Menards Series East as part of the Friday and Saturday, March 24th-25th action. This double-header of racing action will see five different divisions battle it out around the famed 1/2-mile Speedway.
