PELETIER, NC – In accordance with an executive order issued by Governor Roy Cooper banning public gatherings of 50 people or more, Saturday’s racing program at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway has been canceled.
After a discussion with the Carolina Mini-Stock Challenge, which organized the 4-Cylinder Nationals, the race, which had been postponed once already, will not be made up. The next race at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway will be the U.S. Stock Car Open, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 18th.
“It is with great regret that we are canceling the March 21st race,” track owner Bob Lowery said. “In compliance with the governor’s executive order, we are canceling the March 21st race and are looking forward to Saturday, April 18th. We are eagerly preparing for the April 18th season opener to be one of the biggest season openers we’ve ever had.”
The U.S. Stock Car Open on April 18th will feature 10 divisions of racing, headlined by the Late Model division and the debut of the Charger and Bomber classes. The track will be made available for private testing with dates for testing to be announced in the coming days.
Despite the cancelation of the 2019 make up race, the 2020 4-Cylinder Nationals will take place on Saturday, November 14th.
