Museum of the Albemarle at Dixieland Speedway To Promote Moonshine and Motorsports Trail

Aug 16, 2023

The Museum of the Albemarle will be at Dixieland Speedway on Friday evening, September 8, 2023.  Join us as we take Moonshine and Motorsports Trail to the track under the lights and sounds of roaring engines.  Take a minute to learn a few facts about the local moonshiner, Mr. Alvin Sawyer portrayed by Dickie Sanders.  While supplies last grab a Moonshine and Motorsports hat or keychain.

Dixieland will feature five action packed classes of races.  The rising stars of tomorrow will open the night with their JuiceBox karts.  The division features children 5 and under that race in a Radio Flyer ultimate go-kart powered by a 24-volt battery.

Gather family and friends and we will see you at Dixieland Speedway located at 1520 Northside Road, Elizabeth City, NC.  Gates open at 5 p.m. with feature racing at 8 p.m.  Ticket prices can be found here:
