County Line Raceway created its marquee event in 2009. Track owners Edward & Carolyn Upchurch were seeking a charity to support. It was a group effort of everyone associated with County Line to decide to start an event to benefit Victory Junction Gang Camp in Randalman, NC.
In 2009, the event started as a one night show featuring the track’s Late Model division. In 2010, the track’s staff decided to add a new class to the card and brought in the Modified division for the first time in over ten years. As the success of the Modified division showed off, the track has stuck with it, now making it a regular on the yearly schedule. In 2011, the race became a three day event featuring a practice night on Thursday, dash events for the Modifieds on Friday, and a full show on Saturday.
The 2013 edition will mark the events 5th consecutive year.
