Officials from the PRA Tours and the Southern Modified Auto Racing Teams (SMART) will combine for the remainder of the 2020 season through a new partnership, the series announced.
SMART Presented By PRA Tours will join together for the first of at least three races this season beginning with the “55th Anniversary Night At The Races” on Aug. 29 at Caraway Speedway. The SMART Tour-Type Modifieds will compete in a two segment, 99-lap event that will pay the top three runners at the lap 30 break and then race the final 69 laps to complete the race. Joining the SMART Mods at Caraway will be the PRA Tours’ 602 Modifieds and 602 Super Limiteds, along with the Limited/Challengers, Mini Stocks and U-Cars.
“We are really glad to announce this partnership with all the SMART Modified drivers and teams,” said PRA Tours President and Caraway Speedway owner, Darren Hackett. “Caraway Speedway hosted more events with the original SMART series than any other track and we can’t think of a better place to begin this new relationship.”
In addition to the Aug. 29 date at Caraway Speedway, SMART Presented by PRA Tours will also be in action on Oct. 10, along with the PRA Super Late Models at Hickory Motor Speedway. Then on Oct. 24, SMART Presented by PRA Tours will be in action with additional PRA Tours divisions at the Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC. Three dates have already been confirmed for 2021 and additional dates could be added this year.
Many SMART Tour-Type Modified teams will also be a part of the 17th Annual North-South Shootout at Hickory Motor Speedway on Nov. 5-7, along with the PRA Super Late Models and more.
