NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. – STS Motorsports Inc. announced today they would begin work on saving North Wilkesboro Speedway once again.

While previous efforts to Save the speedway have been met with pitfalls and mis-management, STS Motorsports Inc. has decided to reopen the issue and ask the community for help.

“In the past, no one has asked the community what they thought and how things could be done. We seemed to see people come in with grand ideas that fizzled out over time, while disenfranchising the motorsports community as a whole,” said Robert Marsden, founder of STS Motorsports Inc.

In the renewed effort, STS Motorsports Inc. will begin a donation campaign asking racing fans to join in and donate. In return, not only will they help save a historic motorsports landmark, but additionally the will get tickets, pit passes, and even their name on a race or drive the pace car during one of the planned events once the donation campaign reaches it goal.

“We will use our grassroots skills to bring the message to race fans giving them a return on their investment to lease and reopen North Wilkesboro Speedway,” said Steven B. Wilson

All fans and businesses interested in donating can find the campaign and information on Indiegogo at

The campaign will kick off using social media, word of mouth and help from the community willing to see North Wilkesboro Speedway reopened. All the information will be found on STS Motorsports website at or following along on Twitter @savethespeedway and on our Facebook page

The last event held at North Wilkesboro Speedway was a Pro All Stars Series late-model race, won by Chris Eggleston in April 2011. The track once again closed shortly after.
