70th Season Begins Soon at Bowman Gray

It all begins on Saturday,
April 21. That’s when the roaring engines of the NASCAR Modifieds will
once again be heard at historic Bowman Gray Stadium for the start of its
70th season.
    Never one to start off slowly, the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series
begins their season on April 21 with their longest and most prestigious
race of the year – the Hayes Jewelers 200. The Texas Steak and Tap House
Sportsman Series is set for a 40-lapper, with the Law Offices of John
Barrow Street Stock Series and the Q104.1 Stadium Stock Series rounding
out the night’s schedule.
    Looking ahead to the rest of the season, fans can expect the same
thrills they’ve come to love. Five 100-lap Modified races throughout the
season will put the competitors to the test, with the $15,000 Fans’
Challenge Bonus once again in effect for daring drivers willing to risk
it all.
    The Texas Steak and Tap House Sportsman Series will have an extra added
level of excitement in 2018. The Sportsman 100-lap races have always
been intense contests that challenged the focus and endurance of
competitors. The double-file restarts and added duration of these
100-lappers bring new heights of strategy into play. The demands were

the Sportsman class. And now in 2018, three total 100-lappers are on the

Great Clips Crash Fest. In addition to a full schedule of NASCAR racing
action, the Crash Fest also featured an OmniSource Demolition Derby, an
OmniSource Chain Race, and an OmniSource Skid Race. On May 19, this
event will be back again – so get ready for the carnage.
    And speaking of crunching sheet metal, the annual Night of Destruction
will be back again in 2018. An OmniSource Demolition Derby will cap off
the night after the always popular Monster Truck Car Crushing
    Of course, Two Dollar Ladies’ Nights will be back this season – so set
your calendars to come out when all females are admitted for only two
    The full schedule of racing for 2018 will feature exciting events
brought to you by other great sponsors like Kevin Powell Motorsports,
Whelen Engineering, Midway Mobile Storage, the Winston-Salem Journal,
O’Reilly Auto Parts, Colors Edge, FOX8 WGHP, and Carolina Farm Credit.
    But it all starts on April 21 with the longest and most prestigious
race for the Modifieds – the Hayes Jewelers 200. Qualifying will take
place on Friday, April 20. On Saturday, April 21, ticket gates open at
