Wake County Speedway News
Charlie Hansen Excited About Upcoming Wake County Speedway Season

RALEIGH, NC – Charlie Hansen has been involved with Wake County Speedway for years.  Earlier this week, he took over the lease to the quarter-mile track in Raleigh, North Carolina and is ready for a new season.

While Hansen is now heading the track, not much is expected to change.  He played a key role in the track’s success working with Mike Stodder in recent years and plans to keep much of what’s been done over the past few years in place.

“I don’t plan on changing too much,” Hansen said.  “A lot of things that are in place, I had a part of putting in place.  Most things that have been put in place over the last four or five years, I’ve been directly involved with, so I don’t plan on doing a whole lot of changing.”

One thing Hansen is hoping to accomplish is building up a marquee event at Wake County Speedway, while also running other standalone races.

“We’re looking to possibly add a Super Late Model show sometime this year,” Hansen commented.  “We’re also looking for that staple event like what the Thanksgiving Classic is to Southern National Motorsports Park.  We’re looking for something that we can do to have that one big event every year.”

The 2018 season will host with a big event at Wake County Speedway – the biggest event at the track in years.  The CARS Late Model Stock Tour, which has risen to be the premiere short track racing series in the Southeast, will make its first appearance at Wake County on Saturday, April 7th.

“The CARS Tour race is probably one of, if not the biggest show Wake County Speedway has ever seen,” Hansen stated.  “It will definitely be one of the most exciting races of the year, anywhere.”

Excitement, after all, is what Wake County Speedway is known for.  Throughout the years, the quarter-mile bullring has produced incredible racing and exciting finishes regardless of car count.  Whether there are four cars or 20 cars, Wake County rarely disappoints when it comes to action.

“That’s one thing that makes Wake County so appealing,” Hansen said.  “It doesn’t take huge car counts to have a great show.  With the state of racing at the point that we are, Wake County is the perfect scenario.”

Wake County Speedway’s 2018 season will begin on Saturday, April 7th with the Road Trip to Raleigh 123 featuring the CARS Late Model Stock Tour and the Carolina Mini-Stock Challenge.  The rest of the schedule, which consists of races on Friday nights, includes races on April 20th, May 11th, May 25th, June 15th, June 29th, July 13th, July 27th, August 10th, August 24th and September 14th.
