Kinston Chosen For National Dirt Track Championship Event

The City of Kinston is hoping for an economic boost after being chosen to host a national dirt track racing event in April. Kinston is just one of 8 cities in the country selected.

The race will be held April 30th at the complex at the Lenoir County Fairgrounds. Tourism officials say they're expecting at least 250 riders and their families to shop and stay in Kinston during the race, helping to boost the city's economy.

"They're going to get gas here, they're going to spend money in the restaurants, they're going to shop here. We'll even send information to them - nice little brochures or flyers, that will get them out into the community," said Jan Barwick with Visit Kinston.
