Mooresville, NC – Upon this past weekend’s rainout at Orange County Speedway, CARS Tour officials have shuffled the 2017 schedule to announce a makeup date for the Thrifty Tire Service Centers Puryear Tank Lines 300 pres. by The Grilling Store.
The Tri County Motor Speedway race in Hudson, NC will move to Saturday July 8th, and the Orange County Speedway makeup event will fill the June 24th date, originally held by Tri County. The shuffle will not only give fans some space in between events at Orange County, but it will also allow Super Late Models to still run a race to “tune up” for the $10,000 to win and $1,000 to start Mid Atlantic Classic on July 22nd.
“This was the best option not only for the fans, but for our competitors. Moving things around like this will prevent us from running on back-to-back weekends,” explained Jack McNelly, CARS Tour Owner. “This will still allow our Super teams to get a race in to prep for the Classic in July, which is the feedback we received the most. A big thank you to both Tri County and Orange County management for working with us to make it all happen.”
The CARS Tour returns to action next at Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday May 6th in Hickory, North Carolina for duel 75 lap races for both Late Model Stocks and Super Late Models.
