PELETIER, NC – The 2020 season for Legends racing at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway will kick off in a big way with a $2,500 doubleheader in the Team Chevrolet of Swansboro Shootout on Saturday, June 27th.
Saturday’s race will mark the first race of the 2020 season at Carteret County Speedway after three consecutive races were called off due to inclement weather. Prior to that, the season, which was scheduled to begin in March, had been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Legends doubleheader will pay a total of $2,500 in first place winnings, split across the two races ($1,250-to-win each). Second place will pay $400 in each race, with third place paying $250 each, fourth place paying $150 each and fifth place $100 each. The starting positions for both features will be determined in time trial qualifying with the first timed lap setting the first race and the second timed lap starting the second race.
Entry fees for the race are set at $75 for drivers who pre-register online or $100 for competitors who register at the gate on race day.
Additionally, Saturday’s race will feature the return of the East Coast Flathead Ford Racing Association, as well as the debut of the new Bomber division, and the Mini Cup and Jr. Mini Cup division. The Jr. Mini Cup class will feature new faces, including Carsyn Gillikin, Summer Sullivan and Mylah Provost.
Saturday’s Team Chevrolet of Swansboro Shootout presented by The Goodyears at Moonshiner’z will go green at 6pm. Tickets are available online and at the gate for $15.
