SRX Series Confirms Six Dates, Four New Tracks

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Officials from the Superstar Racing Experience have announced the schedule for the series’ second season of racing.

The schedule once again features six races on six consecutive weekends, with four races taking place on asphalt and two taking place on dirt.

The season opens at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla., on June 18. The half-mile asphalt oval is best known as the home of the annual Snowball Derby and has been in operation since 1953.

Virginia’s South Boston Speedway is next on the schedule, with the series slated to visit the four-tenths-mile asphalt oval for the first time on June 25. The track hosts weekly NASCAR-sanctioned racing as well as the annual Thunder Road Harley Davidson 200.

The first of two returning tracks on the schedule is Connecticut’s Stafford Motor Speedway, which welcomes the series back on July 2. Located in Stafford Springs, Conn., the half-mile paved oval hosted the inaugural Superstar Racing Experience event last year. The race was won by six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby.

The fourth race on the schedule is the second returning venue, Tennessee’s Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, which hosts the series on July 9. Last year the .596-mile oval hosted the season finale for the Superstar Racing Experience, which featured a battle between Chase Elliott and his father, Bill Elliott. The younger Elliott eventually emerged as the winner.

Dirt tracks close out the six-race schedule for the series beginning with a visit to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., on July 16. The track, which is co-owned by veteran racer Ken Schrader, hosts weekly UMP-sanctioned racing as well as the annual Iron Man 55 featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

The season wraps up with a trip to another dirt track, Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on July 23. The three-eighths-mile track, which is co-owned by National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Dave Blaney, annually welcomes the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, World of Outlaws Late Model Series and All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars. 

Tony Stewart, co-owner of the Superstar Racing Experience, is the defending series champion. 

“We had a great first year and now we’re looking to build off that momentum going into 2022 with a selection of tracks that blends old and new,” said Stewart. “All the tracks last year delivered great energy, but we’re looking to spread that wealth a little bit this year. Stafford and Nashville are back, and they’re going to be joined by four new tracks – Pevely and Sharon for guys like me who love the dirt, and Five Flags and South Boston, two of the most prestigious pavement tracks around. We’ll hit some different areas of the country and deliver SRX to fans who might not have been able to see us in person last year.”
