This the final stop at Virginia Motor Speedway for the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance before the 2018 FASTRAK World Championship weekend, on September 14th and 15th. Drivers will have their chance for “paid practice” before the World Championship during the USA 100. The World Championship weekend kicks off on Friday, September 14th with the $5,000 to win FASTRAK World Challenge, which is for FASTRAK members only who have competed in a minimum of 10 FASTRAK sanctioned races throughout the year. The following night is the FASTRAK World Championship, paying $20,000 to the winner and $575 to start. The 2018 incarnation of the World Championship will feature non-qualifier’s races, giving more competitors the chance to race for purse money.

The races at Princeton Speedway and Wythe Raceway were postponed due to rain, a rescheduled date will be announced soon.
