The complete schedule has been released for the two-day Champion Racing Association sanctioned Speedfest event at Watermelon Capital Speedway.

The event was forced into taking place on Friday and Saturday last year after being originally scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. It was deemed such a success that track officials scheduled the event for Friday and Saturday, January 25 and 26, in 2018. Practice and qualifying for both the Pro Late Models and Super Late Models will take place on Friday before the Saturday main event. The Sportsman and Southern Pro Truck divisions will race on Friday night to provide additional incentive for fans to turn out.
