While the 2018 racing season has wrapped up, that doesn’t mean there isn’t still work to be done at the local speedways.

Preparations for the 2019 season are already underway for several Northeast Georgia race tracks, as speedway officials are holding rules meetings with drivers and teams for the upcoming season.

Hartwell Speedway in Hartwell, Georgia held their rules meeting at the raceway on Sunday. Along with discussing rules packages for the existing classes, officials also are looking at starting a new Open Wheel Modified division for the new season.

Toccoa Speedway in Toccoa, Georgia has already concluded their planned rules meetings for all divisions over the past few weeks. The big news from the historic speedway is the decision by track officials to remove the Front Wheel Drive division from their racing program for 2019.

Anderson Motor Speedway in Williamston, South Carolina is the closest operating asphalt speedway to Northeast Georgia, located 25 miles past the state line. As such, it draws many Georgia drivers and fans for Friday night asphalt action.

Track officials kick off their series of rules meetings this week, with the first being held on Monday for the Mini-Stock Division. The meeting for the Front Wheel Drive division is slated for Wednesday, followed by the new Pure Stock division on Friday. Meeting dates for the Late Model Stock, Limited and BM Modifieds will be announced soon.
