(December 22, 2003)Hardeeville, SC- Hardeeville Motor Speedway officials released the 2004 Racing Schedule today as an early Christmas present to the race fans who anxious await the start of the 2004 season on the high-banks of the areas only asphalt oval. The 2004 schedule is complete for the entire season and is highlighted by a switch to Friday night racing and using the following Saturday as a rain make-up night. GM/Promoter Mike Covert said, "This change is based on the Speedway needing a necessary rain-date to makeup races in the event of inclement weather, such as we had for the entire 2003 season and to give fans the opportunity to watch auto racing on Friday and come to other non-racing events on Saturdays throughout the year. This is all part of the plan to utilize this facility, to its potential, as a multi-function entertainment facility. Fans will be able to come to the track a little later than when we raced on Saturdays and we might even complete each show a little bit earlier. We hope the fans and their families will have man great nights of entertainment here at the Hardeeville Motor Speedway."

Covert added, "We have added a Legends Series Summer Shootout to the Schedule this year. This is a 10 race event that is scheduled throughout the year where drivers will try to earn as few points as possible to be crowned the Shootout King of Asphalt after the Labor Day race, but at the same time try to earn enough points within their respective divisions to vie for the Track Championship. All of the classes that are scheduled regularly at HMS have at least one night where their class is showcased. For example, we have scheduled at 75 lap Mini Stock Open race where fans will see probably over 30 Mini Stocks competing for a large purse. " Also something new to the schedule is the "Pedal to the Medal Preacher Race" scheduled for July 30th. "This is not a new race event, by any stretch of the imagination, just new to Hardeeville. I wanted to give it our own flare and create a new name for it---- something special for the Hardeeville Motor Speedway, but nevertheless, it will be a great night for the Community a around the Low Country and Coastal Empire. I would like to have 40-50 churches represented," stated Covert. He added that local clergy had not been contacted yet about that race, so far in advance.

The Speedway also announced that in 2004 there will be a special "Family Value Package" to get into the Speedway where a family of four will receive general admission tickets, 4 hot dogs and 4 sodas for only $35.00. "The general admission tickets alone are more than that," added Covert. "This is a way to give something back to the fans who support this facility. Our new Family Value Pack is less expensive than a night at the movies, but with twice as much fun!" No schedules have been released for any non-racing events scheduled at the Speedway for 2004.

The Hardeeville Motor Speedway is located on US Rt.17 at exit 5 from I-95 in Hardeeville, SC or just 10 minutes north of Savannah, GA. You can contact the Speedway at 843.784.RACE (7223)
