Switching Gears: Buffalo River Race Park to host Saturday night racing during its 65th anniversary season
By Mike Spieker
GLYNDON, Minn – Buffalo River Race Park will be celebrating another milestone this coming year as the speedway celebrates its 65th anniversary season. It all began as a small town dirt track hosting slightly modified street cars under the Sunday afternoon sun. Nowadays, highly modified and finely tuned racing machines take to the high-banked quarter-mile under the bright lights on Saturday night. Since taking over the reins at Buffalo River Race Park in 2007, general manager Kevin Nathe has transformed the race track into one of the premier dirt track facilities in the country for its fan and family-friendly accommodations and amenities.
