Georgetown Speedway Mid-Atlantic Championship Oct. 30-31 Offers Something for Everyone

GEORGETOWN, DE – Something for everyone.

A full slate of auto racing excitement is on the agenda for Friday and Saturday October 30 and 31 when Georgetown Speedway hosts the Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend.

Two full days of racing are planned for the progressively banked half-mile oval.

Headlining the action are the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Modifieds and ULMS Super Late Model Series.

The STSS Modifieds will conclude the $10,000 Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central championship battle with a 40-lap finale offering up to $7,000 to win with a “Gambler’s Fee” posted.

STSS Modifieds run heat races on Friday (Oct. 30), with a B-Main and the main event Saturday (Oct. 31).

For the first time ever, Chris Zuver’s Zimmer’s Service Center ULMS Super Late Model series ventures to Georgetown as part of Mid-Atlantic Championship weekend. The ULMS series will decide its 2020 series championship on Delaware soil.

  • Looking forward to it. Hotel rates in Dewey and Rehoboth have dropped significantly. I’ll have a Fat Daddy’s brisket and Apple Dumpling/Vanilla Ice Cream if the ice cream truck is there (yea I know brrrr).
    Hope for great weather.
