One new addition for 2017 will be multiple twin races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Cars. The number of events will be the same as in 2016, however with the twin events it will give more cars the opportunity to visit victory lane this year.

A new wrinkle for the 2017 race season will be the addition of the Paramount Auto Group taking the division sponsorship for what will now be the Paramount Auto Group Limited Late Models. Along with this change for the Paramount Auto Group Limited Late Models will be the addition of the Paramount Kia “Big 10” Challenge moving to the Limited Late Models for 2017. Over $12,000 in additional purse and points fund monies has been added to 10 (ten) Limited Late Model Events for a points race within the regular season points races that will create additional awards for the Limited Late Model season.

“The greatest thing about the way this Paramount Kia “Big 10” Challenge is structured is that no one that runs these races will get eliminated from a chance at the Championship” Hickory Motor Speedway General Manager Kevin Piercy also stated “We are excited with the changes that are being made at Hickory Motor Speedway for 2017, we feel that these changes will present a great opportunity for businesses in the Hickory and surrounding area to get involved again with America’s Most Famous Short Track.”
