On Saturday, November 15th, McLain Motorsports will be hosting their Third Annual Carolina Sprint Car Flea Market in Indian Trail, NC.
With each year growing bigger and better, this year looks to be no different. After a successful season of sprint car racing in the Carolinas with rising car counts and standing room only grandstands, there is no reason our flea market shouldn’t experience the same type of success.
Last year’s event included the STP Outlaw show car and rig, Tony Grams’ Carolina Sprint Car, World of Outlaw CEO Brian Carter, RaceSaver Founder French Grimes, and Pete Walton of the United Sprint Car Series. Local crew chief legend, Jeff McCall gave a two hour seminar on chassis setup and sprint car maintenance. That was followed by each promoter giving a series review and preview for the up and coming season.
This year’s event will kick off around 6AM and should follow the same format of last year’s success along with a few exciting additions to be named later on. As always, it is free to sell. We can provide electricity and you also have the option of setting up indoors or outdoors. If you choose the former, get there early as space is limited!
For more information, Brandon can be contacted by email at BMcLain2121@yahoo.com or call him on his cell at (704) 661-9007. Indian Trail is located 15 miles East of Charlotte just two miles off of I-485.
The McLain’s look forward to seeing everyone there. It’s a great time and you’ll be glad you came… ... See MoreSee Less
