There has been a bit of a change up in the New River Valley of Virginia. The track walls, social media and official press and public news now showcase “Pulaski County Motorsports Park” rather than “Motor Mile Speedway”. The Shelor Auto Group ownership of the facility has not changed. “Motor Mile Dragway“, so far, continues to operate under the “Motor Mile” moniker. The negotiation and announcement of the SRX (Superstar Racing Experience) event in July at Pulaski County came with involvement of Matt Hagan (NHRA Champion) and his connection to Tony Stewart, SRX Owner and Team Owner. Hagan, of course, is directly connected with family and owners of the Shelor Auto Group and the racing facility.
With all of that, the name change to “Pulaski County Motorsports Park” did raise some questions but that seems to have settled. Speedway Management LLC with involvement of the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience has an agreement that is current through this season. We can only assume that 2024 and beyond is under consideration for all involved. Any discussion beyond 2023 is being held very close and, we’re certain, eyes are on for the success of the SRX event. We know we’re looking forward to it!
The NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series is proceeding, even as preps are made for the SRX visit in July. For the June 10th “School’s Out” event, Kyle Barnes was a big, double shot winner in the Collision Plus Sportsman division. The DCT Towing Super Street winner was Jimmy Mullins. The Total Car Care Mod-4 winner was Daniel Hutson and the Stock-6 winner was Darrell Allen. Mike Looney did a number on the Price’s Body Shop Late Model race by driving through the field and taking another Pulaski County win.
