Last year, COVID restrictions forced Millbridge Speedway to adapt in order to hold its weekly racing programs. One of those adaptations was shifting from Wednesday night racing to competing on both Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with classes split between the two nights.
While restrictions have lessened in North Carolina, the two-day format proved popular for fans and teams alike. Now, Millbridge Speedway will carry on with the two nights of mid-week racing, with a slight change to the schedule.
In 2021, Tuesday nights will be headlined by the Open Outlaw Karts, with Box Stocks, Beginner Box Stocks and Cadets also in action. The Tuesday night point season will begin on March 9, with the Wednesday season opener taking place on March 10. This year, Wednesday night racing at Millbridge will feature Micro Sprints, Intermediate Outlaw Karts, and Millbridge’s newest division, JR Wing.
The Micro Sprints will alternate between Winged and Non-Winged feature events throughout the 2021 season. This Wednesday, the Micro Sprints will race without the wings, while the wings will be put on the cars when the class returns on Wednesday, March 24.
The points season kicks off this week at Millbridge Speedway. While fans will be allowed to attend as another benefit of the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in North Carolina in recent weeks, those unable to attend will be able to watch on Speed51.TV.
