CONCORD, N.C. – WKA officials are proud to announce the addition of King George Speedway in Virginia as the sixth representative to join the new WKA Speedway Pavement Program in 2012.
Along with Chapel Hill Raceway, Oakland Valley Raceway Park, Poughkeepsie Speedway, and Riverhead Raceway in New York, as well as Sandy Hook Speedway in Maryland, the new program will find all six facilities running a minimum of a four-race WKA divisional program. Of those four events, one race will be deemed a Super Regional, awarding double points across the board, and locking the race winners into the Grand National field at Chapel Hill Raceway in Humphrey, New York August 10-12.
While Super Regional winners will have certain perks in the Grand National, the Chapel Hill event is open to ALL participants, not just the divisional race winners throughout the year. Winners in each race will be honored as the 2012 champion in their respective class or classes.
With the addition of the many tracks comes the resurrection of the flatheads, with one day of the two-day Grand National being dedicated to flathead classes. Below is the current list of tracks, as well as their respective Divisional and Super Regional dates.
