BOWMAN GRAY STADIUM RACING NEWS
December 2012

 

Two Day Shows on Schedule Again for 2013
Again in 2013: Bowman Gray Stadium will showcase a two-day event on Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1. The weekend will feature competition for all divisions. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East will race for 150 laps on June 1.

For yet another year, the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will compete at Bowman Gray Stadium in a 199-lap race. The NWSMT race will be part of a two-day show on August 2 and 3 which will include racing for all divisions.


Photo Day for Video Scoreboard
2013 will be yet another year for drivers to gain extra exposure on the video scoreboard. Teams have several opportunities to showcase drivers, crews, and car sponsors. To prepare for this, two photo days will be scheduled to give drivers and crews a chance to stop by and have their photos taken for scoreboard use. These pictures will also be used for other purposes, such as features in the Bowman Gray Stadium Program, internet sites, and newspaper articles. Car teams may wear uniforms and/or hats with car sponsor logos in their pictures. This is a great avenue for car sponsors to gain exposure, as these pictures will be displayed repeatedly throughout the season.

The purpose of the photo days will be to take headshots of drivers and crews in person - there is no need to bring your car. If your car is still in the garage being prepared for the 2013 season, come out anyway to the photo days to get your picture taken. You may bring your car if you wish, but there is no need to do so.

These photo days will also be an opportunity to get NASCAR licenses, to fill out driver registration forms, and to receive printed 2013 supplementary rules.

The first photo day will be Saturday, March 2 from 1:00 - 3:00 PM. The second photo day will be Sunday, March 10 from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.


Field House Patios

Say “THANK YOU” to your sponsors, friends and family. Call now to reserve a sponsor patio on the second floor balcony of the field house overlooking turns three and four. This unique opportunity is being offered primarily to competitors through December 31. It is intended as an area where competitors can host their guests to watch the racing and still be close to the action in the pits. Ten (10) guest (non-competitor) pit passes and seating on a reserved patio for only $300. Guests do not need a NASCAR license. Refreshments are also available for an additional charge.

For more information or to reserve your date call Dale Pinilis at (336) 766-8875.
