Carnesville, GA – The FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance has announced that the 2019 FASTRAK World Challenge will be held at I-77 Speedway in Ripley, WV on October 3rd through 5th. The 2019 FASTRAK World Challenge will see a brand-new format this season with open practice, for all divisions, to be held on Thursday, October 3rd. FASTRAK members, who have competed in a minimum of 6 FASTRAK sanctioned events (weekly or touring) are eligible to compete in the $2,000 to win feature on Friday, October 4th. The event will conclude on Saturday, October 5th with a $5,000 to win feature. Points will be tabulated through the two nights, as drivers will compete for a $5,000 to win point fund, paying the top ten positions. A list of eligible drivers will be posted to the FASTRAK Racing Series Facebook page in the coming days.
The FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance made a stop at I-77 Speedway for the UBB Memorial in July. The absolute thriller saw Freddie Carpenter overcome a near spin in the closing laps to claim the win. As the top drivers in FASTRAK descend upon the Ripley, WV oval for the FASTRAK World Challenge, it is sure to be another memorable event.
“We are certainly thrilled to bring this prestigious event to I-77 Speedway,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “Glendal Garnes and his crew do an outstanding job with the track, and it always produces exciting side-by-side racing as we saw back in July with the UBB Memorial. With the second half of the FASTRAK VP Racing Fuels National Weekly point fund now being attached to this event, the racing will be something special.”
The new format comes as the decision was made to move the FASTRAK World Challenge to a new venue as the 2019 FASTRAK World Championship also saw a new format with the historic $50,000 to win feature.
