The two RV Gypsies returned to Carolina Speedway, July 20, 2019 because the Sprinters were racing. The announcer said they are the fastest cars that we will see in South Carolina. They need to be pushed in order to start.

Each Friday night, a mascot throws lots of candy to the children. Anthony got so much candy that his pockets were buldging and his pants were falling down. On this night, the mascot was Captain Carolina.
