Galaxy Foods Sponsors Season Opening Event at Tri-County Motor Speedway

Hudson, North Carolina (April 10, 2005) - Galaxy Foods, based in Hickory, NC, has signed on as sponsor of the “Race of Champions,” on April 14th, opening night, at Tri-County Motor Speedway in Hudson, N.C.  Galaxy Foods has been a longtime supporter of local racing and has six stores in Alexander, Catawba and Burke counties. These locally owned and operated businesses are The Fresh Air Galaxy and Market Basket Galaxy stores.  The company has provided several store gift certificates to be given away during the evening to lucky fans.


The season at Tri-County will kick-off with a 100-lap Late Model Stock event, with current champion Josh Goble and at least six former track champions from various speedways expected to enter.  Pepsi Cola Bottling has re-signed to support the Pepsi Super Stock Challenge, which will have what is anticipated to be the largest field of cars yet.  Several new teams have expressed interests in the division, with some having already been at the speedway tweaking and tuning their cars, with hopes of giving Scott Franklin, the current champion, a run for his money.


The Street Stock drivers are set to try to unseat Kevin Eby’s reign as champion in the division, while Eby is bringing out a new car in an attempt to hold on to his throne and claim his sixth championship at the speedway.


With fewer and fewer tracks running the stock four cylinder division for Mini Stocks, more cars are expected to be on hand to thrill the fans once more, as drivers chase Doug Setzer, the 2005 champion. 


The Fast and Furious division has a new sponsor on board, as Baton Tire & Auto has signed to support the front wheel drive class.  Champion Jeff Poston plans to return to race at Tri-County and hopes to earn his second championship in a row.  The 2004 champion, Stephen Clippard, has purchased a fast Honda, in hopes of reclaiming the honors.


Jeff Banks will be unveiling his new ride in the Tri-County Minis, after a very successful 2005 season that earned him the title of champion.  There will be new faces in that division, as well.


Pit gates open for competitors at 4pm.  Trackside parking will open at 5, with the main grandstand opening at 6 and practice will also begin at 6. Qualifying begins at 7 and the green flag will drop on the 2006 season at 8pm. The special “early bird giveaway” will be held at 7pm.  Adult tickets will be $12, seniors $7 and children 12-4 are $5.  Children under three and under are admitted free.
