NASCAR & Auto Racing

Wilkes County Racing Heritage Celebration scheduled Saturday

Short takes from the Wednesday notebook:

  • The Wilkes County Racing Heritage Celebration will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Wilkes County Heritage Museum on East Main Street in North Wilkesboro. Racing memorabilia from the late Benny Parsons and from the R.J. Reynolds collection will be on display and 1960 NASCAR champion Rex White will be signing autographs.
  • This year’s Daytona 500 winner, Kevin Harvick, put his signature along with his right footprint and handprints into cement this week as he was enshrined in the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame outside the Daytona 500 Experience this week. Winning drivers since 1996, when the attraction at the track first opened, are part of the display.
