Carolina on Saturday, October 31st. It will be the third time the 700 plus
horsepower, 1300 pound exotic race cars have invaded the re-configured version
of the legendary speedway since it was reduced from a 5/8 mile oval. The event
is the Finale of the 7th annual Carolina Thunder Nationals North vs. South
Shootout during the nineteenth season of competition for the USCS . The
Halloween night special event and is entitled as the USCS "Speed Spooktacular"
and has several Halloween themed activities in addition to some "Frightening"
displays of speed.

of the country’s top ranked drivers and sprint car talent racing for pride and
glory for each of their regions in this only third-time ever USCS North vs.
South Shootout sprint car challenge event at the Cherokee Speedway. Saturday
night’s racing action features a full program of USCS winged sprint car racing
plus racing in four Cherokee Speedway’s most popular weekly racing divisions.

SECA Late Models racing for $1200 to win plus the Limited Sportsman, Crate
Sportsman , and Renegade divisions will join the two sprint car divisions with
special events of their own.
The Cherokee Speedway USCS event is expected to bring top winged outlaw sprint
car drivers from at least eight states to the track from as far away as New
York, Delaware, Florida and Mississippi. The exotic fire breathing, alcohol
burning, 700 horsepower open-wheeled USCS sprint cars weight just 1,300 pounds,
and are pound for pound the World’s most powerful short track race cars. The
sprint cars will literally fly around the track surface at speeds well over 130
M.P.H. It is not uncommon to see the USCS sprint cars popping "wheelies" or
doing wheel stands because of the brute force of their engines and their huge
17-inch wide rear tires.

Series winged mini sprints will contest a full racing program including their
Speed Dash, Qualifying Heat races and Main Events on Saturday night.

sprint cars. The four Cherokee Speedway weekly racing series drivers will be
racing for increased prize money in each division.

special event portion of the program. The popular Limited Sportsman division is
doing battle for a $800 top prize.
