Southern National Motorsports Park Releases 2018 Schedule

LUCAMA, NC – Southern National Motorsports Park will host 16 different events in 2018.

Southern National Motorsports Park will host at least two races or events each month, with the exception of August, from March through October.  The season will get underway on March 3rd and concludes with the traditional season-ending three-day Thanksgiving Classic from November 23rd through the 25th.

“We’re excited about our upcoming season,” track owner Michael Diaz said.  “The fans who support us each week want more races so we’re going to do just that.”

The 2018 season will mark the return of the Limited Late Model division, which has been absent from the schedule with the exception of special events for the past three seasons.  The Late Model Stock Car division will also see a change in 2018 – running out of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car rulebook.

In addition to racing, Southern National will host a Monster Truck Show, which will be accompanied by a demolition derby, on June 23rd.  The Day of Destruction, which was a success last season, will return on October 29th.  And on July 7th, Southern National Motorsports Park will host a 12-hour Enduro race, starting at 8:00am and running until 8:00pm.

“We wanted to try some different things next season,” Diaz commented.  “Our fans really enjoyed the Monster Truck Show when we ran that in 2015 and 2016 and we got a lot of feedback about the Day of Destruction so we’ve added both of them to the schedule.”

The season opening race will feature 150 laps of racing for the Late Model Stock Car division on March 3rd.  Late Model Stock Cars will also race on April 14th, May 26th, July 28th, September 28th and will highlight the Thanksgiving Classic on November 25th.  Limited Late Model races during the regular season will be held on March 13th, April 28th, May 5th, June 2nd, August 18th and September 22nd.

Each race for the Late Model Stock Car and Limited Late Model divisions will tie into the Thanksgiving Classic with bonuses and more, which will be announced in the days and weeks ahead.
