Do you like a little adrenaline coursing through your veins? Do you have the need for speed and love to witness and participate in high-speed racing? If this sounds like you or someone you know, then it’s about time you learned about the Wake County Speedway in Raleigh. Here, you can bring your family out to watch the intensely entertaining races, or you can find a car and a sponsor and register to race yourself
The Wake County Speedway was built in 1962 and has been the premier car racing location in Greater Raleigh ever since. This historic .23 mile bullring has served up plenty of adrenaline pumping races for spectators and drivers alike.
There are drivers registered in a wide array of divisions, from four cylinder to future star mini cup to UCAR division. Tickets in the grandstands are only $12 for adults and decrease in price by age group until you get down to the free children age 5 and younger. This is a fantastic family sporting event that won’t break the bank.
The next big event at Wake County Speedway is the Walls Roofing UCARS 2nd Annual Spook-Tackler event on Nov. 6th, which will host UCARS racing, Mini Cups racing, kid bike races and the Thunderin’ Blues Band. For more information about this event or the speedway, visit this website.
