Myrtle Beach Speedway For Immediate Release
Myrtle Beach Speedway Open House event set for Saturday May 4th:
Saturday May 4th will officially usher in the new season of NASCAR racing at the famed Myrtle Beach Speedway with an Open House event free to the public with Gates opening at 5pm locally. A complete night of racing including the NASCAR Whelen All-American Late Model Series and the season debut of our SuperTruck division will highlight the night. The Victory Junction Kangaroo Express Playground will host activities and games for children of all ages.
“2012 was a great year for us and we wanted to build a special Open House event to kick off 2013 and show off the work that went into our phase 2 renovations. By making our facility completely fan friendly we wanted to open the track to area residents and tourists to highlight our second full year of ownership. We work hard to identify good causes and use the Speedway to contribute back to the community, like this week’s Walk the Dog awareness program for area pet shelters.” Remarked Bob Lutz Driving 101’s CEO and owner of The Myrtle Beach Speedway.
About Myrtle Beach Speedway:
The Myrtle Beach Speedway, originally named Rambi Raceway, was built in 1958 and is located at off of Highway 501 in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. The speedway is a semi-banked asphalt oval track that spans 0.538 miles. Over the years, Myrtle Beach Speedway has been the training ground for some of today’s biggest stars including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, and Denny Hamlin. All four generations of Petty’s (Lee, Richard, Kyle, and Adam) and all three generations of Earnhardt’s (Ralph, Dale Sr., and Dale Jr.) have taken a green flag at the historic track. Myrtle Beach Speedway currently hosts weekly NASCAR racing from April to November as well as family shows (Wheels of Destruction Thrill Show) and special events. Myrtle Beach Speedway is also the permanent home of the NASCAR Racing Experience where fans and tourists can drive the actual Sprint Cup Cars previously raced by the stars of NASCAR.
