Manager of Events for Winchester Speedway
Winchester 400, Sprint Events Highlight 2010 Schedule
Series PR Report
Officials from the Champion Racing Association (CRA) and Winchester Speedway have announced that CRA would once again manage and promote the legendary ½ mile oval in 2010. Winchester Speedway owner Charlie Shaw will use the guidance of CRA leaders R. J. Scott, Glenn Luckett and Greg Wood who have been managing the events at Winchester for Shaw since the 2005 season.
"Every year our signature events have continued to grow," Shaw noted. "Everyone at CRA has done a good job in helping bring back Winchester Speedway to its glory days. I look forward to working with CRA again in 2010 to continue to develop great events at Winchester."
CRA was brought in to manage and promote the Speedway after having been closed for the 2004 season. Since then the speedway has averaged about eight events each season. The majority of the tracks events to date have been successful; changes have been made each season to better benefit the track and its racing future. CRA is also the sanctioning body for the CRA Super Series late models, CRA Late Model Sportsman Series, CRA Street Stocks and the CRA FWD Compacts.
The complete details of the 2010 schedule are planned for release in the coming weeks and will include the successful Labor Day Weekend World Stock Car Festival, and the continued resurgence of the famed Winchester 400 as well as events from the USAC National Sprint Cars, the Must See Racing.com Extreme Sprint Series and the 2nd Annual Night of Destruction. Season ticket and reserved seat information will follow soon after.
