MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Myrtle Beach Speedway will host the 2nd annual IceBreaker on Saturday, February 11.

The 2nd annual IceBreaker is the speedway’s first race of the 2017 season. Drivers of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, as well as Modifieds, Chargers, Mini Stocks and Vintage cars will hit the track. The prestigious event is a lock-in for the Myrtle Beach 400 that will be held at the speedway in November. Not only will Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series race winner have a guaranteed spot in the track’s biggest race of the season, but a $5,000 purse will be collected in Victory Lane at the end of the day. Drivers from all across the Southeast are expected to make their way to South Carolina’s Grand Strand to compete in Saturday’s race.

Grandstand tickets are only $15, and kids 12-years old and younger enter the gates for free. Myrtle Beach Speedway also has discounts available for locals, military and seniors.

One-day pit passes are $30 with a NASCAR License and $35 without, while two-day pit passes are $40 with a license and $50 without.
