Laurens County Shrine Race

The weather should be perfect for racing tonight at the Laurens County Speedway just off the SC 127 By Pass when some really fast race cars take to the track for the annual Laurens County Shrine Race.

Gates will open at 5:00 PM and racing should get under way about 7:00 this evening.  Shrine officials tell WLBG that a lot of special events are planned prior to the green flag so make your plans to arrive well before race time.

Entry price for the grandstand is $20 and it’s $35 for admittance to the pit area.

ALL of the proceeds from tonight’s race will go the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Greenville to provide care for children whether their families have the ability to pay or not.  Last year’s race provided more than $92,000 for that cause.

The longstanding slogan for the Shrine Race is “Strong cars run so weak legs can walk”.

This evening should be great fun and all for a great cause.
