(Halifax, NS – May 23, 2023) –Well score one for Mother Nature, as she rained out the CARSTAR Weekly Racing Series Season Opener, scheduled for Sunday. But we refuse to let her win or dampen our spirits! – We will take another shot at the first green flags of the season for all weekly racing series divisions this Friday night at 7:00pm.

In addition to the thrills of the season opener, it’s also $20 Carload night!  For just $20, you can bring as many people as can safely fit in one vehicle. So, gather your friends and family, and enjoy the thrill of the races together. Individual tickets will also be available at the gates on race day for those who prefer to fly solo.
