The Short Track Super Series Fueled By VP South Region starts and concludes its championship battle at Georgetown with the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial in March and the traditional Eric Kormann/Brett Deyo-promoted ‘Blast at the Beach 3’ midweek program in late-August.

For the first time, the Ultimate Super Late Model Series visits Delaware on Thursday night, June 2 as part of the Colonial Clash Championship partnered with Potomac (Md.) Speedway, Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Va., and Winchester (Va.) Speedway.

By popular demand, the United Racing Club (URC) 360 Sprint Cars have two dates on the schedule: one during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at nearby Dover, Del., in May and another in July.

A pair of practice sessions are set to open the season at Georgetown: the first on Saturday, March 5 and a second on Friday, March 11. Both are open to all types of race vehicles able to pass safety inspection.

Georgetown Speedway, originally constructed by Melvin L. Joseph in 1950, is located at the intersection of Route 113 and Speedway Road in Georgetown, Del., just miles from the Delaware beaches and less than a 40-minute drive from Ocean City, Md.
