“The Skyler Trull race has turned into such a great show,” said Carolina Speedway’s Mark Gibbons. “It is so much more than a race; it’s a weekend of fun and events. Huge crowds turn out for the event and it’s definitely one we circle on the calendar every year.”
“I am really excited to be back at Carolina Speedway, it will be a little emotional for me because the last time I was there was in 1989 with my brother Rusty Wallace and Dale Earnhardt Sr,” said Kenny Wallace. “I take my dirt racing very seriously and look to competing for the win in a car sponsored by Jegs.com and prepared by my friend Kyle Strickler.”
