NORTH WILKESBORO, Oct. 19, 2012: “After hearing from multiple people on our comments following announcing our campaign to reopen North Wilkesboro Speedway, we feel the comments seem to appear as they are being directed to the wrong people. The people of Wilkes County both in the Government and private citizens of the county are ardent supporters of the reopening of North Wilkesboro Speedway, notably many private citizens have worked extremely hard by putting their many talents to use to see something happen and we are most grateful for their help and sacrifice to see this project through.

While our comments may seem to be directed at them be ensured this is not the case. As most might not be aware of earlier situations to revive and reopen North Wilkesboro Speedway, ideas of space needles with a spinning restaurant and stock car racing on ice have been floated by previous attempts to open the track. STS Motorsports came out against those efforts and our comments are directed at those ideas and groups solely, as we are questioned on many fronts about our involvement with previous attempts.”

All the information on the campaign can be found on STS Motorsports website at or following along on Twitter @savethespeedway and on our Facebook page
