CP Racing Promotions will also stage a return to Prescott Raceway in Arkansas , along with a stop in London , Kentucky , at London Dragway , as well as a long list of gatherings at State Capitol and I-30 . “ These are the races that have been confirmed ... there ’ s some more stuff we ’ re working on that hasn ’ t even been confirmed yet , so it should be a great season in 2023 !” concludes Pollage .
