Micro Sprints Ready to Roar at Millbridge Patriot Shootout

Every year, Millbridge Speedway hosts a major mid-week event as part of the Charlotte area’s celebration of speed during Memorial Day weekend, culminating with the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  This year, that event takes on a new look, but promises to be just as exciting.

WATCH LIVE: Patriot Shootout at Millbridge

In previous years, the Tuesday and Wednesday prior to Memorial Day meant a big Outlaw Kart show at Millbridge Speedway, most recently known as the Speed51 Open.  This year, Millbridge will instead play host to Non-Winged Micro Sprints for two nights during the HMS Motorsport Patriot Shootout presented by Osmond.

 

The Micro Sprints have gained popularity at the North Carolina facility ever since the first TRD Micro Showdown at the track in the fall of 2019.  Now the track’s top weekly division, it is both a proving ground for up-and-coming racers and an occasional playground for established racing stars looking for some mid-week excitement.

 

Both nights of racing during the HMS Motorsport Patriot Shootout presented by Osmond will include $1,000-to-win features for the Micro Sprints, as well as $500 to win features for Beginner Box Stocks (Tuesday) and Box Stocks (Wednesday).

 

All teams will have a chance to practice Monday night ahead of the HMS Motorsport Patriot Shootout presented by Osmond.  Practice will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. ET on Monday night.

 

Fans unable to attend the two nights of racing will be able to watch live on Speed51.TV.  Click here to find out how you can watch live.
