Highland Speedway takes next weekend off, but returns on Saturday, June 29th for one of the biggest shows of the year – the DIRTcar Summer Nationals at World Famous Highland Speedway.  What’s been billed as the “best stop on the entire Summer Nationals tour” is sure to be a sellout crowd.  Get there early so you can make sure you get a seat.  Super Late Models, Modifieds and Factory Stocks complete the schedule for that night.

And coming up in August, the very first visit from the World of Outlaws Late Models is on Wednesday, August 14th.  Tickets go on sale this week on the MyRacePass website and app.  You’ll want to buy your tickets early if you want a seat for what will be the biggest show in Highland Speedway history.  $10,000 to win Super Late Models and $2,000 to win Modifieds will draw some of the best drivers in the country.

You can find Highland Speedway 24/7 on Facebook and Tik Tok.  To see the full schedule, rules for the cars, track records and other information go to www.HighlandSpeedway.com.
