Opportunity Presented to SCSCS Competitors the Weekend of August 6th
as Part of North Wilkesboro Speedway’s Racetrack Revival
North Carolina (May 9, 2022) – A
late addition has been made to the 2022 Super Cup Stock Car Series
schedule as a result of an exciting plan recently introduced to the
short track racing world. Last
month over Easter weekend, the Racetrack Revival project was brought
to the public’s knowledge, in which North Carolina’s historic
North Wilkesboro Speedway will host a multi-week grassroots racing
event featuring multiple series on the current 0.625-mile oval
asphalt throughout the month of August.
The festivities are being spearheaded by XR Events, their CEO
Barry Braun, and associated staff.

to announce that they will be part of the August 6th
didn’t want to miss an opportunity like this for our series and
teams,” SCSCS Director of Competition, Joe Schmaling, stated.

may have never competed or even stepped foot on the storied
property. The month
of August events will be the final chance to race on the surface
that the NASCAR Cup Series last competed
in 1996 and has otherwise sat relatively dormant over the past
decade. After the
festivities in August are completed, the pavement will be removed in
preparation for several weeks of dirt track racing to take place in
October followed by a complete repave in 2023 as part of a planned
revitalization of the venue initiated by Speedway Motorsports,
parent owner of North Wilkesboro Speedway.

October 22nd date originally reserved for Hickory Motor Speedway. Due
to recent unfortunate developments, the final event of the season is
instead slated for October 1st at Dominion Raceway.
As always, schedule remains subject to change with
specifics to be determined as needed.
