Carteret County Speedway Revises Schedule for 2016 Season

Carteret County Speedway Revises Schedule for 2016 Season

SWANSBORO, NC – Carteret County Speedway has made a handful of revisions to the 2016 schedule, adding more events for stock car classes for the season.

The most significant change will involve race weekends previously schedule for Kart racing.  Those race weekends will now host the primary divisions (Late Models, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, U-CARs, Legends and Bandoleros) instead of the CCS Karts.  The DES Pro Wing Champ Karts will still visit Carteret County Speedway on July 3rd.

In addition to the change from Kart races to stock car races, the September 17th event has been moved to September 24th to avoid conflicts with East Carolina Motor Speedway’s Ronnie Barnette Memorial and the CARS Tour event at Myrtle Beach Speedway.

In addition to the regular divisions, several touring divisions will visit Carteret County Speedway in 2016.

The Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Club will bring their throwback style of racing to Carteret County on May 28th for the Memorial Day Weekend race sponsored by Interstate Batteries.  The June 18th race, which is sponsored by Budweiser, will host the Carolina Eastern Mini Cup Association (CEMCA) which races predominantly at Dillon Motor Speedway.  Meanwhile, the DES Pro Wing Champ Karts will visit Carteret County on July 3rd as part of the Firecracker Clash and Randy Myers’ Southern Modified Race Tour will invade the Crystal Coast on October 29th.

The 2016 season will begin on Saturday, April 30th after the April 2nd opener was cancelled due to rain.  The regular season finale will be held on Saturday, October 8th.
