Despite Set Backs Concord Speedway Plans to House Grassroots Racing For Years to Come
CONCORD, N.C. (May 25, 2012) – Concord Speedway would like to address the rumor mill that has ensued after announcing mid-season adjustments to their schedule and purse amounts. With 30 years of successful operation under their belt, the speedway does not plan on closing its doors and looks forward to 30 more racing seasons to come.
Concord Speedway prides themselves on loyalty to their fans and competitors. Therefore, management made a sizeable investment into improvements for the 2012 season in an effort to grow the track into one of NASCAR’s premiere hometracks. Concord Speedway is and always will be the track where grassroots racing lives and the speedway wants to continue that history and bring great short track racing to the Charlotte region.
However, at this point in the season, the speedway is left with no other choice but to implement some modifications in their schedule after low car counts plagued all divisions. The Wilburn Auto Body Late Model Stock Car division will now pay 1,200 dollars to win and the entire new purse structure is available on their website. They have also eliminated four races off of the end of their season and their new schedule for the remaining races is available on their website as well.
Concord Speedway looks forward to several exciting events still in their schedule for later this season, including the UARA, Scrapefest and the Mason Dixon Meltdown PASS South Series events.
Keeping their dedicated fans in mind, they have decided to decrease the price of adult admission to 12 dollars. Seniors, teens and military will still receive a discount admission of 10 dollars and kids 12 and under are free!
Concord Speedway’s sister Quarter-Mile track will retain their current schedule for the season and the speedway is looking to add additional events that will hopefully create excitement and draw competitors to the facility.
Concord Speedway is here for the long haul and they are always open to bringing in events to fill their event calendar and bring a variety of festivals and unique events to the area.
On Saturday, May 26, Concord Speedway will host the PASS South Super Late Model Series for their CV Products 125 event. Qualifying will begin at 5:15 p.m. with racing action starting at 7:30 p.m.
