Goodyear All American Speedway opener set for July 31st

JACKSONVILLE, NC - Goodyear All American Speedway is set to roar to life on
Saturday, July 31st with a Late Model Stock Car doubleheader headlining the
All American Showdown.

Goodyear All American Speedway, located off Richlands Hwy in Jacksonville,
is the relaunched and rebranded oval track at Coastal Plains Raceway Park.
Earlier this month, veteran racer Anthony Goodyear and his wife, Tonya
Goodyear, took over management of the day-to-day operations at the oval
circuit with a vision, and that vision is set to become a reality on July

"The inaugural race at Goodyear All American Speedway is going to be an
intense night at Jacksonville's Action Attraction," Goodyear said.  "We're
looking forward to getting our first race in and seeing our racing family at
the track.  Troy and Ronnie Humphrey presented us with an opportunity too
good to turn down and we're enjoying the challenge of bringing this track
back to life."

With cost savings for the racers in mind, Goodyear All American Speedway
will run the Late Models on American Racer scuff tires for the opening race
with the hopes of being able to procure new tires in the coming weeks and
months as production issues inside the industry ease.  Tires for Late Models
and Super Trucks will be available for $170 per set, with mounting fees and
taxes included in the price.

In addition to the Late Models, the All American Showdown will feature
racing for Super Trucks, Street Stocks, U-CARs, Legends, Champ Karts, Mini
Cups, and Jr. Mini Cups.

Free open practices will be held on Saturday, July 24th from 2pm-8pm and on
Wednesday, July 28th from 4pm-8pm.  On Friday, July 30th, an open practice
will be held from 4pm-8pm for $25 per car.  The track will also be available
for rent by appointment only for $150 for four hours for Late Models, Super
Trucks and Street Stocks and $75 for four hours for all other divisions.
The track can be reserved for rent by calling the speedway office at (910)

Rules for all divisions, with the exception of Street Stocks (which will run
on an 8" tire instead of a 10" tire) are available on the Goodyear All
American Speedway website at

Enhancements are already being made at the facility which includes a new
paint job as well as upgraded concessions.  There will also be a family
section in grandstands which will be smoke free and alcohol free.

Tickets will be available at the gate on race day for: $15 for adults, $12
for active/retired military (with ID), seniors (with ID) and students (with
