It's hard to believe that April 29th will signal the third race of Wake County Speedway's historic 60th Anniversary Season.
Not only are fans eager to see the return of the featured LeithCars.com Late Model Series, but just as important will be the pre-race celebration happening along the front stretch.
Prior to Friday night's Accent Imaging 150, Wake County Speedway fans will be invited to join drivers and race teams down on the track along the front stretch, for Fan Night! "Our Fan Night Celebration is one of our favorite events all season," said Speedway Promoter, Charlie Hansen. "It gives our fans of all ages, the opportunity to see and meet the drivers behind the helmet, so to speak. The driver's love it too, as they get a chance to not only make new fans, but to answer questions about their race cars and what it's like to compete at America's Favorite Bullring," said Hansen.
Kids may also have the opportunity to take a (slow) parade lap around the speedway while sitting in the passenger side of their favorite race car - (there's no seat on the right side, so grab hold of the roll cage and, please be sure to wear some earplugs).
Wake County Speedway will also be welcoming some of our area's high school students who are headed to the NASCAR/Universal Technical Institute in Moorseville this Fall as part of Fan Appreciation Night.
So be sure to bring a pen Friday night, April 29th, and ask for a Hero Card (while supplies last) at the ticket booth, so you can get your favorite driver's autograph.
Fan Night meet & greet with the drivers will start right after the end of qualifying, around 8 pm, followed by the invocation and national anthem.
The Accent Imaging 150 will feature
twin 35-Lap LeithCars.com Late Model Stock races, plus Mini-Stock, Legend, Countryss.com Bandolero, and Bomber races.
