Carnesville, GA – FASTRAK Companies International, LLC has announced a brand-new tour for the 2020 season: the FASTRAK Racing Series Northeast Tour. The FASTRAK Racing Series Northeast will kick off the season at Tyler County Speedway paying $7,000 to win in the 3rd Annual Great American Crate Race. That date along with the Labor Day Weekend doubleheader at Tyler County Speedway will be co-sanctioned with the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance, which is FASTRAK’s Southeast touring division. The tour will have a $5,000 to win points fund for its inaugural season and pay through the top 10 in points. Drivers must be a FASTRAK member, attend 75% of the races, and run Hoosier FT tires at all times to qualify for points or other contingencies. FASTRAK membership is $150 and includes $100,000 of participant accident medical insurance through Mutual of Omaha.

“It is with a lot of excitement we are launching the FASTRAK Northeast,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “Every year we get a lot of drivers and teams asking when FASTRAK was coming back to the area and we are glad to be able to bring it to reality.”

The FASTRAK Racing Series Northeast tour will then head to Hagerstown Speedway on May 2nd for a $2,000 to win and $250 to start race. Then the series will shift to Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex on May 24th for $2,000 to win. The tour will then have back to back dates at Latrobe Speedway on June 13th and July 25th, with a return to Roaring Knob slated for July 26th. Another stop at Hagerstown is scheduled for August 15th. The current schedule has the tour wrapping up on Labor Day weekend at Tyler County Speedway with a double header during the Hillbilly Hundred on September 5th and 6th. All of these shows will pay $2,000 to win and $250 to start.

FASTRAK Northeast Tour drivers will have their chance at three bonus races on the 2020 slate at Virginia Motor Speedway, all of which pay $3,000 to win and $275 to start. Those events are the King of the Commonwealth on May 30th, The USA 100 on August 1st, and the Prelude to the World Championship on August 22nd. Drivers competing in the races at Virginia Motor Speedway will be able to use their finish to replace a lower finish during the 2020 season. The three bonus races at the Jamaica, VA oval will give drivers valuable seat time ahead of the $51,000 to win, $2,051 to start FASTRAK World Championship scheduled for September 18th and 19th.

“FASTRAK is definitely looking forward to returning to the area and look for some excellent competition,” continued Irvine, “There are some very talented drivers there and it will definitely be something the fans will want to see. This is a great schedule with a few more races currently in the works.”

Rose Compton, who is the ULTIMATE Northeast Super Late Model Series director, will be assisting with operations of the FASTRAK Racing Series Northeast.
