Salem slates TEN racing series opener

TEN: The Enthusiast Network announced today that Circle Track, the largest motorsports media brand focused on short-track racing technology, will kick off the inaugural season of the Great American Racing Series on Saturday with the Salem 100 at the historic Salem Speedway.

Circle Track’s groundbreaking event series brings together classic oval track racecars and late-model muscle to race on both paved and dirt tracks in a historic quest to win the richest short-track championship in the nation.

Designed as an affordable form of stockcar racing, the series features individual race purses of $30,000, with $5,000 going to the winner, making it both the richest street stock series in the country and the best destination to see future racing stars.

Spectator tickets are on sale now at salemspeedway.com prior to the event and at the Salem Speedway box office on the day of the race.

Cost in advance is $14 for an adult and $16 on the day of the show.
