MYRTLE BEACH SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES SCHEDULE ALTERATIONS

 

Myrtle Beach, SC (December 13) – The 2017 racing season at Myrtle Beach Speedway is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in the track's 60 year history. A new event was just added to the schedule as the 2017 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will start its season on the historic half mile track. This will be the second NASCAR Modified event in the history of the speedway. The track has also moved two race dates for the upcoming season. The race date originally scheduled for April 22nd will now be held on April 15th during the Horry County Fair. The event scheduled for May 20th has been shifted to July 22nd to allow the track's weekly racers the opportunity to compete in the U.S. Nationals of Short Track Racing.

The new unified NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour is going to test Modified drivers' skills at 17 different race events throughout the eastern United States. The series is a combination of the Modified and Southern Modified tours. The event at Myrtle Beach is the second NASCAR Modified event at the historic track. The Southern tour ran at the speedway in 2009.

With the huge success of the Horry County Fair, it was decided to move the race event originally scheduled for April 22 to the final Saturday of the fair, April 15th. Admission to the fair will include admission to the races. The stands will be packed that night for the first round of eliminations for the Daytona 1 Beach Madness tournament.

After the announcement of the U.S. Nationals of Short Track Racing it was decided to reschedule the May 20th race to July 22nd in order for the local Myrtle Beach racers to participate in that prestigious event. The adjustment to the schedule has moved the second round of eliminations for the Daytona 1 Beach Madness tournament to July 8th as part of the Sun Fun 101 race.

The 2017 season begins at Myrtle Beach Speedway with the IceBreaker February 10th and 11th. In addition to Late Models, Chargers, Mini-Stocks and Vintage cars the track has added a 50 lap Modified feature. It will afford drivers a chance to put in some laps in advance of the Modified Tour race.
