HISTORIC SEASON 70 OPENS SATURDAY NASCAR Nite leads the charge! The 2018 season is here! Season 70 - straight ahead this Saturday night at 7pm! This year's NASCAR Nite series starts earlier and ends later (Sept. 8), adds a special weekday race to celebrate America (Mon. July 2), hosts three huge nights of extra-distances races (Super Saturday June 23; Season 70 celebration races July 28 and Sept. 1), all amounting to more racing than recent decades! Thursday Thunder extends the season one week, beginningJune 14 - Aug. 23, creating an 11-race series for its 22ndseason. Car Wars and Day of Destruction fans and teams enjoy additional dates, too: The 2018 calendar cycles to five Friday nights in August for Car Wars performances. The Day of Destruction moves to a standardized every-third-Saturday of the month schedule, hosting five of the popular events from May - Sept.! Fans, families, drivers and teams are all applauding the historic Season 70 schedule. It gives NASCAR weekly teams in particular a welcomed recovery break in expense budgets every month, and an opportunity to enjoy additional summer activities with family and friends on a Saturday night, while still increasing the overall event count for every series. Thunder teams will benefit alongside the NASCAR teams, as the speedway will open the pit gates for late-morning open practice sessions prior to the Day of Destruction openings. For teams who need the fine-tuning and practice time, it's an affordable alternative to costly track rentals during the heart of the season. And best of all, Beech Ridge put a ticket-price freeze in place for every 2018 event, continuing to help family budgets while providing the best motorsports entertainment around!
