The dirt racetrack is expected to bring more than 200 race teams from across the Midwest to Memphis on May 8th and 9th.
To say the racing community is excited to get back into action may be a slight understatement. With organizers announcing that Scotland County Speedway in Memphis will be open for business this week, more than 200 cars have already registered for the two-day event May 8th and 9th.
The racetrack, which is owned and operated by the Scotland County Fair Board, will limit general admission to the grandstands, offering 300 tickets that were set to go on sale online on Tuesday, as well as approximately 50 additional general admission tickets for sale at the gate. No limit on pit pass admission was announced.
The promotion team noted that due to the fees to offer online sales, tickets will be $20 for those 11 years old and older, $10 for ages 4-10 with children under three being admitted without a ticket.
As of 3 p.m. on Monday, May 4th, a total of 213 drivers had pre-registered to compete in the five divisions, sport compacts, hobby stocks, modified, stock cars and sportmods. Modifides will pay $3,200 to win, with the top stock car and sportmod taking home $3,000 while the hobby stocks and sport compacts compete for a top prize of $600 and $1,000 respectively according to promoter Mike Van Genderen.
Hot laps will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday night and 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The races are scheduled to be live streamed at racexr.com.
