RALEIGH – The New Wake County Speedway is racing into the 2013 season with new leadership, a total facilities overhaul and a mission to become the best Friday night track on the East coast.
The storied speedway, open for half a century, is unveiling its massive makeover at Media Day from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m this Friday, March 29. New ownership will be available for interviews and cars will be on track for photo.
The 2013 season is scheduled to begin on Friday, April 5 with close to 20 weeks of racing scheduled and fanfare anew.
New owner Adam Resnick has leased the 50-year-old facility from the Simpkins family and joined forces with speedway veteran Charlie Hansen to bring big time racing back to the Triangle area.
Resnick, acting as President of Racing Operations, and Hansen, working as Promoter and General Manager, have already received a flood of support from car owners, drivers, fans, sponsors and advertisers on the heels of historic improvements.
The speedway facility has been completely remodeled from the bleachers to the lighting to the track surface, and every space in between. Along with renovations and additions has come a fresh face for the track including, among other things, a mascot, new marketing and a rebirth as “The New Wake County Speedway: America’s Favorite Bullring.”
The New Wake County Speedway is located at 2109 Simpkins Road in Raleigh, right off 401 South heading out of Raleigh. The track is located online at wakecountyspeedway.com.
