Following a two-year hiatus, the 19th annual Track Superintendent Field Day is set to return Sunday, June 13 at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino. The event kicks off with a reception at the Holiday Inn Express in Shelbyville followed by two days of conference activity at Indiana Grand June 14-15.

Moderated by Nancy Holthus, on-air paddock analyst at Indiana Grand, numerous industry experts will be scattered throughout the two-day event regarding surface and soil sciences, the latest in equipment used to maintain track surfaces, agronomic practices, and other tactical safety measures to assist track superintendents with their day-to-day routines.

“This year, we have over 70 tracks represented at the event,” said the event's founder Roy Smith, Indiana Grand's track superintendent since 2015. “Due to continued travel restrictions, we won't have anyone internationally like we generally do, but we will still have a good representation from tracks across North America.”

Indiana Grand also hosted the 2016 renewal of the event.

Open to the public, several equipment displays will be trackside during live racing June 14-15.
