For Immediate Release:

As the 2022 race season has come to a close, I just wanted to take a moment and show my appreciation for each and every one of you that supports Hickory Motor Speedway. This Historic race track and any success it may have sets squarely on all of you great folks that support it. Your loyalty and passion for Hickory Motor Speedway amazes me week in and week out as we all work together to make Hickory Motor Speedway Americas Most Famous Short Track. It has been an honor over the past 14 years to serve as the General Manger of Hickory Motor Speedway and as I prepare for my 15 th season in 2023, I continue my commitment to work hard to provide a level playing field for our competitors to race and a great place to market your products, come to our events or continue to be a part of our team at Hickory Motor Speedway.

I would be amiss in this post, if I did not give a shout out to Jason Sherrill for his years of service in multiple areas at Hickory Motor Speedway over the years and most recently as the voice in the booth at this race track. He will be missed next season. It truly hurts to lose him and that position will be difficult for me to fill professionally and personally. Although there are way too many people to name in this post that are a valuable asset to Hickory Motor Speedway, (you know who you are) I do want to thank Skip Moser and my precious wife, Leshea for all of their hard work.

There is so much expected of them each week, and they continue to step up every time.

We will also continue to bring new and exciting venues to Hickory Motor Speedway. So this Thank You for 2022 is for all of our sponsors, competitors, fans, workers and every one that continues to support Hickory Motor Speedway and make their own memories. Our 2023 season is just around the corner!!!

We have one last event for 2022 and that is the Christmas Kaboom on Saturday November 26 th , a Christmas themed event with Fireworks at the end.

Please note our schedule has been released and we will be open throughout the winter for practice / testing.

Thanks again for partnering in and supporting the Greatest Short Track in the world!!

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas,

Kevin Piercy
General Manager
