One of the biggest events on the short track racing calendar every year comes at one of short track racing’s smallest dirt tracks, and that event is right around the corner. The QRC Speed51 Open presented by HMS Motorsport at North Carolina’s 1/5-mile Millbridge Speedway will be held on May 22-23 and it will stream live on Speed51.com for the third year in a row.
Race fans will have the ability to watch both nights of racing from the richest Outlaw Kart event in North America for just $24.99.
On Tuesday night, fans will see the young kids of the Beginner Box Stock and Box Stock divisions, plus the new Outlaw division.
Wednesday night is the biggest night of the year for Outlaw Kart racers. The continent’s best Outlaw Kart racers will do battle for $5,151 in the Open division feature. Drivers will also have the chance to take the “Back Row Bonus” which is returning for the second year in a row. The Back Row Bonus will give one driver a chance at winning an additional $25,000.
Joining the Open division on Wednesday night will be Millbridge’s Intermediate division. The Intermediates will race for $500 and a free set of Hoosier tires.
Wednesday night’s live stream will be a multi-camera shoot.
“We are excited to bring fans a live stream on Speed51.com for the third straight year,” said Millbridge Speedway co-owner, Ashly Burnett. “We love to showcase Outlaw Kart drivers to fans all over the world.”
A two-day online video ticket is available for just $24.99. Fans can also purchase single-day tickets as well for $14.99 for Tuesday and $19.99 for Wednesday. Click here to purchase.
Yearly members of the Speed51 Video Network will receive 10% off their pay-per-view purchase.
Millbridge Speedway has become the home of Outlaw Kart racing in North Carolina. Millbridge Speedway has seen drivers from all sorts of disciplines race at the track. Those drivers include Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stars Kyle Larson and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., two-time Chili Bowl Midget Nationals champion Christopher Bell, former USAC National Midgets champion Tanner Thorson and more.
The QRC Speed51 Open presented by HMS Motorsport annually sees more than 50 drivers try to qualify for the event. One year ago, it was Nick Hoffman who took home the big check and the trophy.
