CARS Tour Announces Hickory Motor Speedway 250 – Twin 125’s

MOORESVILLE, NC – The Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour has announced that the throwback theme to the Throwback 276 at Hickory Motor Speedway will go on hiatus for 2020. The August 1 race At Hickory Motor Speedway will be known as the Hickory Motor Speedway 250, with twin 125-lap races for the Late Model Stock Cars and Super Late Models.

“We thought long and hard about all the possibilities, but with the uncertainty that lies ahead surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic in North Carolina, we felt like this was the smartest decision,” said CARS Tour Series Director Chris Ragle. “Part of what makes the Throwback 276 special are the chances fans have to meet legendary drivers, see the throwback paint schemes, and share the history of the sport with a sellout crowd at a historic track like Hickory. With all the restrictions in place across North Carolina, it would be difficult to offer the full Throwback 276 experience to fans and make it a successful event.”

While there will be no Throwback theme at Hickory come August 1, there will still be a doubleheader for the Late Model Stock Cars and the Super Late Models. The CARS Tour made its first visit of the season to Hickory on June 13, which featured two thrilling races in front of empty grandstands.

“We are hopeful that by August 1, we will be able to have fans at the race track again in some capacity,” said Ragle. “We may not have a sellout crowd, but if we can have some fans at the race track to put on a show for, that is a step back towards normal.”
