Millbridge Speedway will once again open its gates for a major event this fall. Millbridge announced Thursday that it will host the TRD Micro Showdown on November 5-6, 2019 for Micro Sprint competitors.
Millbridge Speedway has proven over the years its ability and knack for putting on marquee shows at the 1/6-mile oval in Salisbury, North Carolina. Between the annual Speed51 Open and fall events such as last year’s KKM Giveback Classic.
“We are very excited to announce the TRD Micro Showdown,” said Ashly Burnett, co-owner of Millbridge Speedway. “We are always looking for the next big event to host at our facility, and the Micro Sprints should put on two nights of incredible racing.”
Contested in the days leading up to the World of Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, the TRD Micro Showdown will feature two nights of racing. Non-Wing Outlaw Micro Sprints will headline Tuesday’s program, while Winged Outlaw Micro Sprints will race on Wednesday.
The Non-Wing Outlaw feature will pay $2,000 to win, with the Winged Outlaw feature offering $5,000 to its winner.
Full details on race procedure and format will be announced at a later date. Rules for Micro Sprint divisions will mirror those for the Tulsa Shootout each year at the River Spirit Expo Center (OK), with the exception of an open tire rule in place for the TRD Micro Showdown.
Millbridge’s Outlaw Kart divisions will also compete at the TRD Micro Showdown. Beginner Box Stocks and Box Stocks will compete on Tuesday, while the Intermediate and Open Divisions will race on Wednesday.
There will be an open practice session available for Micro Sprint teams on Monday, November 4, from 7-9:30 p.m. that evening.
Stay tuned for more details about this exciting new event on the Millbridge Speedway calendar.
