FREDERICK, MD – No major damage was received at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway, which was spared a direct hit from Hurricane Dorian, and the 2019 season is going to resume as scheduled with the Bobby Watson Memorial Celebration coming up on September 21st.
“We’re lucky to have been spared by Hurricane Dorian,” track owner Bob Lowery said. “Not only the track but thankfully our area, with the exception of the tornado that touched down on Emerald Isle which affected members of our racing community, received minimal damage. Our prayers go out to those affected by the tornado on the island and everyone impacted by Hurricane Dorian.”
Myrtle Beach Speedway confirmed on Friday morning that Saturday evening’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series race would still take place.
East Carolina Motor Speedway announced yesterday this weekend’s race has been pushed back to Sunday, September 15th. East Carolina Motor Speedway, being more inland than Carteret County, likely did not sustain any significant damage in the storm.
