CONCORD, NC - The brief pause of the WKA National event season has just about come to an end, as the month of June presents 2 National Events, one of those being the Carolina Summer Nationals at Carolina Motorsports Park June 24-26 for the RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Gold Cup Series. Competitors running the event later this month are reminded that the initial Tier deadline for entries is Tuesday June 8. Entries have been rolling in at a steady pace as competitors who ran the series first event back in April in Jacksonville, Florida have embraced the new fee and purse structure, affording many competitors to recoup the bulk, if not all of their entry money back, provided they are the in the top 3 as far as overall results for the weekend per class, netting the overall winner $500, 2nd place $250, with $150 going to 3rd.

Extended track time will also be a part of the series second event, with laps being increased in the mains for the Sportsman, Junior, and Senior classes, giving competitors the additional track time they are seeking.
