ADAIRSVILLE, GA – The 15th Newsome Raceway Parts Weekly Racing Series season begins on Monday, June 1 for 24 different tracks in ten different states featuring four different Crate Racin’ USA sanctioned racing Divisions. Drivers will compete with each other using a points system over a 22-week season that ends on November 1.

            A driver’s top 11 finishes will count towards their National points total. The 2020 Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Weekly Racing Series Divisions are Late Models, Street Stocks, Late Model Sportsmen, and Modified Sportsmen. A list of the 2020 Sanctioned Tracks and the Divisions they will be running are listed below.

“With the COVID 19 pandemic and the National Shutdown it brought, we have had to alter the 2020 Weekly Racing Series season,” Crate Racin’ USA Director Adam Stewart said. “We usually have a 27-week season with drivers taking their best 14 weekly finishes, but with different states having different dates to open back up, we have had to cut the season down to 22 weeks with the drivers taking their best 11 weekly finishes.”

            The defending Newsome Raceway Parts Late Model Weekly Racing Series National Champion is Shannon Lee of Lumberton, MS, the defending Street Stock National Champion is Mike Lane of Wing, AL, the defending Late Model Stock National Champion is Bryson Mitchell of Russellville, AL, and Luke Riddle of Hartselle, AL is the defending Modified Sportsman National Champion.
