Hampton. VA — Wacky Wednesday is set to return to Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway this spring with a brand new look, brand new dates, and a brand new season of action-packed racing with some of the fastest street cars in the seven cities.
Action is set to return under the new MUSCO LED lights earlier than in years past and race well into the fall. The 2023 season kicks off with open practice on April 26th and will feature more than twenty race dates. Competitors and fans will see the return of twin races nights, monthly King of the Hill, new winners races for the Saturday night divisions, and various promotions throughout the season. New for 2023 will be scheduled off-weeks around major holidays and three Friday night races.
“We really wanted to take a look at Wacky Wednesday over the off-season and bring fresh new ideas to the table for our competitors and our fans,” said Wacky Wednesday and Media Relations Director Justin Kern. “This schedule was one of the first big changes we made to the program. Adding things like twin nights to allow drivers more track time and fans more races. Bringing in more Saturday night features to show off for the fans while building in some off weeks around the holidays. However probably one of the biggest changes this year will be the addition of three Friday night races.”
For the first time in the history of the program three events — May 12, June 16, and July 14 — will race on Friday night. Registration and General Admission gate times will be announced at a later date. These will be full points-paying nights and will take the place of the Wednesday program that week.
“The idea to race on a Friday night actually came from our racers,” Kern went on to say. “At the end of the season, we hold a town hall-style meeting to get the ideas from our competitors and for the last two years this is something that has constantly been brought up and we, along with the Hampton Roads Kart Club, are going to give it a shot. This is going to be more than just a night of racing, it will be something fun for the whole family.”
In addition to Friday night races, Wacky Wednesday will host an open practice on April 26. Gates will open at 5:30 PM and practice will run from 6 pm to 8 pm. Registration for the pits will be $10 and the stands will be FREE and open to the public. Competitors will have a full two hours to practice their Time Attack runs and/or set up one-on-one races on the heels of opening night.
