Mooresville Motorplex (MMX) will debut our next five-week, Wednesday night race series, the Stock Car Steel/SRI Championship Series, with Round One this Wednesday, May 15. The very popular Wednesday night series includes a points championship for the TaG Senior, TaG Masters and Rental Kart League Heavy and Light divisions. Special for Round One will be a rental kart race for NASCAR spotters during opening ceremonies at 7 p.m.
NASCAR Spotter’s Rental Kart Race Featured in Round One
NASCAR spotters will take off their headsets and try their hand at being behind the wheel of our rental karts during opening ceremonies of the Stock Car Steel/SRI Championship Series Round One at 7:20 p.m. The spotters will get a five-minute practice session before immediately gridding for a 10-lap race with a rolling start.
Unique for this race, the spotters will be gridded according to where the NASCAR driver they spot for ranks in the points standings. NASCAR Sprint Cup spotters will be gridded first, followed by Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series spotters.
Spotters who are interested in racing MUST pre-register before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15 by calling the MMX office, 704-696-2926. The cost is $25 per driver. All spotters who register for the race, please plan to arrive at 6:30 p.m.
