“Fans and competitors have come to expect great, exciting racing at South Boston Speedway, and we believe that’s what they will see again in 2020,” said Cathy Rice, the track’s general manager.

“The NASCAR Modified Tour was a huge hit last spring and we’re excited they are coming back, especially for the season-opener. And the CARS Tour always puts on a great show in their championship races. What a great way to begin and end the 2020 season with a whole lot of awesome racing in between.”
