Speedway Motorsports CEO Marcus Smith announced Thursday that the North Wilkesboro Speedway will host the 2023 NASCAR All-Star Race.
The move comes amid the Racetrack Revival the track has done this summer. Part of it was a CARS Tour race featuring Dale Earnhardt Jr., which drew 18,000 spectators and wide interest from fans and industry members alike.
Although the NASCAR Cup Series hasn’t raced at the track since 1996, many of the Cup drivers raced virtually in 2021 for the eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series.
