Officials with Carolina Speedway have announced that Carolina has concluded it’s 2020 season.
The season was set to start off with a bang with the annual Skylar Trull Memorial. But unfortunately, due to restrictions because of the Corona Virus, the STM had to be postponed.
We were finally able to begin racing at the end of May. Amazingly, the weather was perfect for the 10 Fridays that we did not get to race. Once we started racing, rain would play havoc pretty much our entire season. While we only had a few rainouts, we were dodging weather just about every Friday night.
Carolina did miss out on some of our special races including the annual Shrine 100 along with several USCS races and some other previously announced special events.
The BAM Street Stock Battle Royal did take place, as well as the KOC and 16 other events including the first visit of the Ultimate Super Late Model Series making their first appearance at Carolina in several years.
Even through all of the adversity, Carolina was able to have a really solid year. Track conditions were much improved this year. Fans braved many rainy nights and some rain delays. Fans also were receptive to restrictions due to Covid.
Promoter Bruce Arrants said, “We were frustrated at having to wait to get the season started, but I am really proud of our season. I appreciate all of the fans and race teams that came out to Carolina this year”. Car counts were up by an average of 9 per week by the way.
Arrants added, “I am proud to have a great staff at our track. These folks give up their Friday nights to make my job easier and words cannot express how appreciative I am to have our crew”.
Postseason awards will be awarded at an announced date. Also, look for Carolina Speedway’s 2021 schedule and rules to be announced very soon as well.
