Since I mentioned the bids were up for Antioch Speedway again in my last post, so I will mention that Oval Motorsports and John Soares Jr. will be back for five more years. Congratulations John and good luck next year and the years ahead. Below are the minutes from the Contra Costa County Fair Board Meeting regarding the track:
