We are about to drop the green flag on our 2017 season and the Newport Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series. The R.E. Hinkley Super Streets kick off the season tomorrow night with their Daytona 500 as they will run 75 laps in the Richardson Memorial Race presented by TrackSide Motorsport and Accessories. Nearly 30 cars are anticipated to qualify for this event. “Superman” Aaron Fellows is seeking to repeat as the division’s champion after winning 4 times last season but will face many familiar names from over the years at the speedway. Grandstands open at 4:30 pm and admission is $ 10 for ages 6 and up. The Casella Modifieds, Pepsi Limited Sportsman, and T-Bird Mini Mart Wildcats round out the card.
