“It certainly has all the ingredients for a spectacular event,” said Series Director Jimmy Wilson.  “Not only for USARacing, but for Hickory Motor Speedway, our fans and competitors as well.  We appreciate the support we’ve received from Hickory Motor Speedway and the individual support series to make this event a reality.”
