Each year racing series begin work on their following season’s schedule earlier than before. The CARS Tour is no exception. With only two events remaining on its inaugural calendar, series officials informed drivers Saturday at Concord Speedway that much of their 2016 schedule is in place.
The racing slate will include a total of ten events at eight tracks, nine of which are already signed up.
Drivers were told the Tour, which consists of a double-header of Super Late Model and Late Model Stock Car racing at each event, will head back to Hickory Motor Speedway and Orange County Speedways in North Carolina for a pair of races apiece. Also returning to the schedule are North Carolina’s Tri-County Motor Speedway and Southern National Motorsports Park as well as Myrtle Beach Speedway, just over the border in South Carolina.
At least two facilities will be new to the CARS Tour in 2016. South Carolina’s Greenville Pickens Speedway, which is a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track that has hosted Pro All Stars Series races, will host one race. The sparkling new complex of Carteret County Speedway in Swansboro, NC will be the other new venue.
CARS Tour officials tell Speed51.com powered by JEGS that a handful of other facilities are being considered for the final event of the 10-race CARS Tour 2016 schedule.
An announcement of the dates for the schedule is expected in the next few weeks.
