OUR 2015 MONTH OF MONEY TOUR IS DEFINITELY ON
However the itinerary for the tour has not yet been released as we are still waiting on clarification of dates for the major races in the July/August period. The major reason is because Eldora Speedway has scheduled the Kings Royal one week later in 2015. This decision will result in subsequent races also being held (probably) one week later as well.
The flow on effect right through to later races will mean that the 2015 MoM itinerary will be slightly different to what has been the case for the last four years. As soon as we have updated information the itinerary will be fine tuned and released here instantly.
Our continuous fine tuning of these tours will ensure that you will still have a superb time travelling with Global Speedway Tours so why not click here to read the schedule and see how it unfolded in 2014. Indeed the Kings Royal date change may also mean that additional races we haven't previously been able to get to may now become available. Iconic events such as Indiana Sprintweek perhaps? Or the Renegade 410 series in Ohio and surrounding states. Or the new Iowa based National Sprint League.
To experience the fun of the tour why not read the 2014 Month of Money Blog.
