Legendary Hilltop Speedway in Marietta kicked off it's racing season Friday evening.

Since the racetrack re-opened in 2012, racers from all over the Mid Ohio Valley have come to participate each Friday night at Hilltop.

The season will run all the way through the end of September, every Friday night except July 4th.

There's also going to be a number of special events throughout the summer for fans.

The track was closed for a number of years and the drivers are more than excited to have Hilltop back up and running.

"It's basically the only friday night race track around. Everybody runs Saturdays. We invite everybody out and we have multiple nights where fans can take advantage of discounts and things like that with local companies. Anybody wanting to market their company can be involved here", says Chad McVey.

Hilltop says it's fun for all ages and recommend everyone to come out and see some great, fun races.
