SOPHIA, NC – Entry forms for the 2020 Prestoria Racing Association (PRA) Tours opener at Caraway Speedway are now available for the PRA 602 Super Limiteds and PRA 602 Tour Modifieds. Racers from across the Carolinas are counting down the days as the 2020 season finally kicks off on Saturday, August 1st. Two of the country’s most affordable and racer-friendly divisions will be joined by Limited Late Models/Challengers, Mini Stocks, and U-Cars in beginning Caraway Speedway’s 55th consecutive year of operation under the leadership of the Hackett family. The 602 Super Limiteds will compete for 60 laps, while a Modified star-filled 602 Tour Modified feature will go for 35 laps.
“We’re excited to get these entry forms out for the 602 Super Limiteds and 602 Tour Modifieds,” said PRA Tours President and Caraway Speedway owner, Darren Hackett. “We’ve had some cars practicing at Caraway for several weeks now and we will get another open practice under our belts this Saturday and then get ready for the season opener on August 1st.”
602 Tour teams will be allowed purchase Hoosier d800 tires from series or Hoosier Asphalt South. Teams can also use tires left from last season. The durometer rule from last year will no longer be in effect. Limited Late Models/Challengers will have the option to race on 4 Hoosier scuff f45s or 3 f45s and 1 new Hoosier f45. The Mini Stock race will be 30 laps, paying $300 to win and $50 to start, courtesy of V’s Barbershop of Winston Salem, NC.
