Occoneechee Speedway Relay
DUE TO COVID-19, ORANGE COUNTY IS NOT CURRENTLY ISSUING EVENT PERMITS, SO WE ARE UNABLE TO ANNOUNCE A DATE FOR THE 2021 SPEEDWAY RELAY AT THIS TIME. WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED AS RESTRICTIONS CHANGE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
Runners, start your engines!
This relay will consist of 20 laps (each lap is just over 1 kilometer) making the total distance roughly 13.5 miles. Just like pit row, teams will line the field as their teammates race around the track awaiting the signal to hand-off, which can happen in any order and after any given number of laps. There is no required distance for each runner, nor is there a specific order of hand-off that has to be followed. It’s quite simple: your team needs to complete a total of 20 laps to finish the relay!
**The first team registrant (or team captain) will pay the total team registration fee in order to secure a spot for their 2 or 4 person team. Each teammate will then register individually to join the team and will not be charged a registration fee. This race does sell out! So don’t snooze!
$80/2-person team & $160/4-person team through November 15th
$90/2-person team & $180/4-person team through December 31st
$100/2-person team & $200/4-person team through January 18th
(no race day registration)
Please stick around for food and beverages after the relay. The post race raffle will be held at the Speedway (top of the grandstand) following awards at 3:30pm. You must be present to win!
2021 RACE DATE: TBA.
(Orange County is not currently issuing event permits due to COVID-19. Boo.)
2021 packet pick-up information will be updated here when available.
