05.03.2012 - King George Speedway to host first Speedway Pavement Super Regional this weekend

CONCORD, N.C. – The wheels of the newly designed Speedway Pavement program continue to roll in a positive direction for 2012 with the first of what will be six Super Regional events, the first being at King George Speedway in Virginia this Saturday, May 5.

Fresh off of their first divisional event a few weeks ago, competitors will now run for double points in their respective divisions, with the winners guaranteed starting spots for the August 10-12 Grand National Championships at Chapel Hill Raceway in Great Valley, New York. While the winners will be locked into the GN event, the August championship race is open to ALL competitors on that weekend.

King George joins Chapel Hill and Riverhead Raceways, Poughkeepsie Speedway, and Oakland Valley Raceway Park, all in New York, as well as Sandy Hook Speedway in Maryland, as participants in the 2012 program, geared towards finding the next national champion in each class.
