BEVERLY – Drivers who call Elkins Raceway home have put their cars to rest in the garage, taking shelter from the upcoming winter weather. Since the racing season concluded on August 27, drivers and their pit crews have had a moment to collect their thoughts about the season and begin assessments on their vehicle in preparation for next season.

To celebrate the end to an exciting season, Mac McDougal and the Skidmore family hosted their annual Elkins Raceway Points Championship Banquet Saturday at the Beverly Volunteer Fire Department in Beverly, WV. Drivers, pit crews and their family members gathered for an evening of fun activities, comfort food, an awards ceremony and dancing.

Before the shiny trophies were handed out, Elkins Raceway Announcer Jimmy Henry was sure to shoutout all track volunteers, officials, sponsors, Amy Channell Photography and My Buckhannon for their participation in helping make this season successful.

Follow the Elkins Raceway Facebook page for racing details, the 2023 event schedule release, photo galleries and more. See the official My Buckhannon photo gallery with countless high-resolution photos from Saturday night races and other special events from the 2022 season.

Stay tuned as My Buckhannon will share more about the 2023 season at Elkins Raceway in the coming months.
