Summertime Racing is Back on Track
Raleigh, North Carolina – Wake County Speedway (WCS) is reopening its doors Friday evening, June 14 for fans to experience once again in the Raleigh area. The WCS is located at 2109 Simpkins Road in Raleigh.
The Wake Country Speedway is a recently renovated local race track providing opportunities for upcoming drivers to make a name for themselves while providing great entertainment for racing fans.
Built in 1962 as a quarter mile dirt track, the speedway achieved asphalt status at the conclusion of the 1986 season. Major renovations were again completed in time for the 2013 season that ends September 6.
Fans can now enjoy food from concessions through out the evening, children can meet the track mascot, and six different categories of racing are held throughout the season, including:
- Modified 4 Cylinders
- U Cars
- Southern Ground Pounders
- Late Models
Races are held every two weeks on Friday nights from June through September. Gates open at 6pm, drivers practice begins at 7pm, qualifying and heat races begin at 8pm, and the main event begins at 8:30pm.
Tickets are $5/child (ages 6-11), $12/adult, and children under 5 are free.
For fun family entertainment, the WCS is great way to spend a summer Friday night and is why they call it “America’s Favorite Bullring.”
