Rocket Raceway MX Under New Ownership
“A dream come true,” is what co-owner Mike Lupey says about purchasing Rocket Raceway. Mike and best friend of 35 years, Bill Donnelly of Dover, Pa., always wondered what it would be like to own a motocross track. In November 2012 their fantasy turned into a reality when Rocket Raceway was put on the market.
Mike and Bill are former racers with 30 years of experience giving them an edge on how to manage a track and groom it to perfection. They are also excited to give nearly 20 local people a chance to earn some extra money while flagging or scoring for races. Their first race as owners will occur this weekend on Sunday, April 28.
The charge for spectators is $10 for the day, with the races commencing around 11 a.m. Food will be available for purchase, but spectators must bring their own lawn chairs. This will be the first of eight races that will be held there this season.
