Memorial Classic Poised to Be One of Carteret County Speedway’s Biggest Shows

SWANSBORO, NC – Sunday night’s Memorial Classic at Carteret County Speedway, the third running of the event, is poised to be one of the biggest shows in the track’s young history with strong fields expected and a can’t miss pre-race show.

Sunday’s race will be headlined in part by the Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Club.   With vintage Modified and Sportsman cars, the Southern Ground Pounders bring back the nostalgia of stock car racing’s golden days.

“The Southern Ground Pounders really enjoy coming to Carteret County Speedway,” Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Club president Mack Tatum said.   “The hospitality is always great and the beach is right up the street.   We like the place so much, we used an on-track photo for the cover of our club calendar.”

Prior to the racing action, a star-spangled pre-race show will kick off the festivities with pride, pageantry, and patriotism on display.   The Tribute to America pre-race show will feature the All Veterans Parachute Team which will fly down to the track with the American flag.   Events for Hope for Warriors and the Carolina Museum of the Marine will also be a part of the pre-race program.

One of the largest Late Model fields in Carteret County Speedway history is expected to compete on Sunday, including local favorites Chris Burns and Brandon Clements, as well as teenage phenom Mini Tyrrell and former ARCA driver Sarah Cornett-Ching.   Entering the race, Brandon Clements holds a narrow two-point lead over Chris Burns.

“It’s a very good feeling to be leading the points so far but we know it’s very early in the season and a lot of things can happen,” Clements said.   “We’re going to keep doing our best and focus on picking up more wins and consistent finishes so we’ll see where it shakes out.   We have put a lot into this program this year and to see this much success out of the gate is a dream come true.   Wendell Davis is to thank for a lot of our success.   He brings a lot of knowledge to our team and I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done and continues to do for this team.”

For many Late Model racers, May 27th will be a great opportunity to prepare for the $15,000-to-win Solid Rock Carriers 150 which is set for July 7th.   Already, new faces have come to Carteret County, including 13-year-old Mini Tyrrell, who raced at Carteret County on May 12th, finishing fourth.

“Carteret is an absolutely beautiful facility,” Mini Tyrrell said. “When we got here last Friday, we got a tour of the track and the layout and how well manicured the facility is was so impressive. It’s a real driver’s track without any banking, you really have to get up on the wheel and hit your marks every lap. It was a lot of fun to drive.”

Other divisions racing on Sunday will be the Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, U-CARs, Legends and Champ Karts, and each of those divisions has produced thrills this season.

Ricky Locklair, Jr. holds a one-point lead over James Horner in the Street Stock division.   In Mini Stocks, Travis Provost leads over Stephen Sanders by two points.   Meanwhile, Adam Resnick holds the points lead in U-CARs while Justin Hall leads in Mini Cups, Caleb Day leads in Legends, Morgan Odum leads in Jr. Mini Cups by one point over Chase Singletary, and Daemyn Ottaway leads the points in the Champ Kart division.

Sunday’s Memorial Classic begins at 6pm with a Fan Fest followed by the Tribute to America pre-race show and then green flag racing.   Tickets are $15 for adults, kids 10 and under free at Carteret County Speedway.
