BOWMAN GRAY STADIUM RACING NEWS
2018

 

Rules Meeting for Street Stock and Sportsman Divisions (Drivers and Car Owners Only)
On January 20 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM, a meeting will be held in the field house at Bowman Gray Stadium to discuss possible future rules changes to take effect after the 2018 season. This discussion is only open to drivers and car owners from the Street Stock and Sportsman Divisions.

Photo Day for Video Scoreboard
2018 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 2018 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 2018 supplementary rules.

The first photo day will be Saturday, March 3 from 1:00 - 3:00 PM. The second photo day will be Sunday, March 11 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. 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. 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.
