2018 DNQ Series Rule Updates

(Mooresville N.C.) The DNQ Series is undergoing a large transition into the 2018 season, After 4 years of racing the DNQ Series will head into it 5th year of fun and exciting racing. "This series has come so far from where it started, but with time comes change, with that being said we have spent a lot of time listening to the owners, fans, and the drivers. We have learned a lot as a series over the years and I think these rules and updates are going to grow the series even more. I cant wait to see how next year plays out." We have also talked to Millbridge about running a dirt road course event this season, and it looks like we will be able to do that as well.
