DIVISION CHANGES HIGHLIGHT 56TH SEASON AT CARAWAY SPEEDWAY

Late Models and Challengers Will Add Spice for Competitors and Fans

(Sophia, NC): The 56th season of competitive racing kicks off on Sunday March 14th at Caraway Speedway near Asheboro, NC. Several changes await the racers and fans, not the least of which are name changes for the “Feature” division and the addition of a competitive support class with the addition of the “new” Challenger Division.

“Our Limited Late Model/Challenger division from 2020 was a bit confusing due to the class title.

The division had cars that were basically NASCAR type Late Model Stock Cars with just a few minor changes. The “Challenger” name part of the division title went even further in confusing what was what for the class”, said Caraway Official, Randy Myers. “We decided to reward the steady stream of competitors in the division by dropping the title name from 2020 and letting everyone know the division should be called “Late Models” because that is just what they are.

We have bumped up the purses in the division and added some laps to their regular events.

We also have changed the tire rule for the division to allow the competitors more control to their tire “inventory” that should increase competition from week-to-week”, Myers said.

The “new” Challenger division is one of the tracks older divisions reborn with some cost saving rules in place. “We looked hard at the division over the winter and the strong turnout at a January meeting for drivers in the division cemented the decision to bring the division back. We borrowed a great set of rules from the staff at Dillon Motor Speedway, made a couple of minor changes and here we are” said Caraway Speedway Owner, Darren Hackett.

The 602 Modifieds will become the featured “support” class with events on a regular basis. The Mini Stocks will continue along with the UCAR’s.

Toss in four events for the “Pro Late Models”, three SMART Modified Tour events that will see the return of the “Rusty Harpe Memorial Race” on July 3rd and the David “Lightning” Saunders Memorial for the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour for touring Late Model Stocks on May 22nd and you have the groundwork in place for a diverse and exciting season at Caraway Speedway.

The 56th season for Caraway Speedway kicks off on Sunday March 14th with events for the SMART Modifieds, our new Late Model Division and the new Challenger class along with events for the 602 Modifieds and Mini Stocks.
