A ‘new era’ is about to begin at South Buxton Raceway when the green flag waves on the new season on Saturday, May 3.
New promoters Sherry and Gary Lemesurier began preparing for the 2014 season about the time the checkered flag fell on the 2013 season last September.
Actually, the racers and fans could sense the ‘Lemesurier touch’ earlier in the 2013 season when the life-long race fanatics took on bigger roles in track operations under previous management.
The Lemesuriers have been busy all off-season, making huge improvements at the race track while trying to restore South Buxton’s reputation off the track.
“We’ve seen racing from both sides of the fence, Gary and I decided it was time to step up and help put South Buxton back on the map,” Sherry said, as she joked that she and Gary have 85 years experience in racing between them.
Make plans now to be with us for the first big night of the 2014 racing season at South Buxton Raceway.

Fans can meet and get some autographs from several of the drivers from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday.
