Super Cup Stock Cars Added To Wilkesboro’s Racetrack Revival

STATESVILLE, N.C. — The Super Cup Stock Car Series will be part of the Racetrack Revival at North Wilkesboro Speedway during its Aug. 6 throwback-themed weekend.

“I didn’t want to miss an opportunity like this for our series and teams,” SCSCS Director of Competition Joe Schmaling, said. “What better way to bring ‘Racing the Way It Used to Be’ to a track with such history and an event with a ‘throwback’ theme.”

The historic 0.625-mile track will host a multi-week grassroots racing event featuring multiple different series through the month of August.

The opportunity presented is essentially once-in-a-lifetime for many who may have never competed or even stepped foot on the storied property.  The month of August events will be the final chance to race on the surface that the NASCAR Cup Series last competed in 1996 and has otherwise sat relatively dormant over the past decade.  

After the festivities in August are completed, the pavement will be removed in preparation for several weeks of dirt track racing to take place in October followed by a complete repave in 2023 as part of a planned revitalization of the venue initiated by Speedway Motorsports, parent owner of North Wilkesboro Speedway.

Specific to the SCSCS schedule, one additional change involves the Oct. 22 date originally reserved for North Carolina’s Hickory Motor Speedway.  Due to recent unfortunate developments, the final event of the season is instead slated for Oct. 1 at Virginia’s Dominion Raceway.
