PELETIER, N.C. – Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway will crown its champions in primetime on Saturday, November 2nd in the regular season finale at the track and the next to last race on the 2019 calendar.
While many of the points battles have been decided already entering the regular season finale, twin races for the Battlefield Tire Pros Mini-Stock division will provide the backdrop of a thrilling championship showdown between reigning division champion Stephen Sanders and Kris Hetu. The two drivers are separated by just four points entering next Saturday’s championship race.
The Limited Late Model division will see Chris Burns clinch the track championship for the second time in his career. Burns won the Limited Late Model title back in 2016 and has more wins in Limited Late Model competition at Carteret than any other driver.
Mike Cooper enters the Street Stock finale with an insurmountable 23-point advantage and should clinch the Sportsman’s Wholesale Street Stock division championship by starting next Saturday. Andrew Jackson, likewise, is expected to clinch the U-CAR division championship by taking the green flag on November 2nd.
Carteret County Speedway rookie Jordan Lamothe will pick up the division championship in the Legends division, the strongest division at Carteret County in 2019 which has seen 83 drivers compete throughout the course of the regular season.
Another driver competing in their first season at Carteret is Charles Pudenz, and Pudenz has already clinched the Mini Cup division championship. In Jr. Mini Cup, Scotty Benford trails division leader by 12 points.
While the November 2nd race will conclude the regular season and determine the track’s championships, it will not be the last race of the season at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway. On Saturday, November 16th, the Carolina Mini-Stock Nationals will return to Carteret County with the largest field of Mini-Stocks in the region.
The championship race on November 2nd will also play host to the Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Club. Pre-race festivities on both November 2nd and November 16th will get underway at 4pm and the green flag will wave at 5pm. Tickets are $15 for adults while kids 10 and under are admitted free.
