KINGSPORT, Tenn. – Kingsport Speedway has released its schedule of events for next season, which features 26 race events from mid-March through the end of September.

“We’re so excited for the 2020 season,” said Karen Tunnell, general manager and promoter of Kingsport Speedway. “We have a really strong schedule of events put together for everyone around the Tri-Cities.”

The first green flag of the season waves on Saturday, March 21, followed by a second Saturday race on March 28. April 10 will see the first Friday night race of the year.

Numerous special events highlight the season’s schedule – including Racers’ Reunion Night on June 12, the annual WQUT Fourth of July event on July 3 and the return of the Tour of Destruction (date for the Tour of Destruction event is to be announced). The Southeast Super Truck Series make their standard two stops at Kingsport – July 11 and Sept. 26.

“As always, our schedule is packed with a lot of racing action through the spring and summer,” added Tunnell. “We’re also very excited to have the Tour of Destruction returning to the speedway for the first time since 2014.”

Weekly racing events will feature action in the Late Model Stock Car, Sportsman, Pure 4, Mod 4 and Pure Street divisions.

The upcoming season will also see the reopening of the Kingsport Miniway, the go-kart track located on the Kingsport Speedway property. The go-kart track is currently undergoing facility upgrades and will host kart rentals and sanctioned racing events. More information on the Kingsport Miniway will be released soon.

“The reopening of the Kingsport Miniway has been highly anticipated,” said Tunnell. “We’ll be hosting go-kart rentals for everyone to come and have fun, as well as racing events.”
