“Hickory Vintage Racing Association Schedule Set for 2018”

December 14th, 2017 For Immediate Release:

Hickory Motor Speedway finalized the Hickory Vintage Racing Association schedule this week with 8 events at the legendary race track, 7 which will count for points. The season will begin on March 24th and conclude on October 20th. Full schedule is listed below.

The rules have been posted with minimal changes for the upcoming season, but more structure for the series. Notably it will be officiated and managed under the Hickory Motor Speedway banner for 2018.

There will be more consistency with all cars required to run the Hoosier F-45 SX tire. Another addition to the 2018 HVRA rules will be an increase in weight to 3,100 lbs which should provide them the ability to move some weight in the car for improved handling. Maybe the biggest change noted could be the 350 Holley carburetor which will be required on all HVRA cars. Hickory Motor Speedway General Manager Kevin Piercy stated “We have given this division quite a bit of thought over the winter and their present engine rules package is pretty much an open book to any changes in the engine internally, therefore without requiring the competitor to make expensive engine changes the motor can be easily regulated with fuel.”

The 2018 season will crown a Hickory Vintage Racing Association Champion and they will continue to run under Hickory Motor Speedway NASCAR sanctioning. We look forward to seeing all of our competitors, sponsors, and fans for our season opener on March 17th. Rules(PDF)
