Charlotte Kickoff Night Saturday

charlotte kickoff

Scholastic Sports Marketing is proud to announce the return of the “CharlottePreps.TV Kickoff Night,powered by OrthoCarolina.” The event’s exciting doubleheader will once again be featured at the newly renovated Memorial Stadium in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, on Saturday August 22nd, 2015 season at 5:00 p.m.

First up, the Charlotte Country Day Buccaneers will take on the Myers Park Mustangs, in a long-awaited public-private matchup. This game is especially poignant as Country Day very recently hired former Mustang Defensive Coordinator, Drew Witman, as their new Head Coach. Drew is replacing his father, Charlotte coaching legend, Bob Witman. Bob resigned earlier this year after 25 years of coaching at Charlotte Country Day. With the schools being only five miles apart, the winner of this game looks to take away the ultimate bragging rights within the South Park – south Charlotte area.

For the second game of the night, at approximately 8:00 p.m., the Mavericks of Mallard Creek will take on the Independence Patriots. The Mavericks offer an exciting challenge for Independence, as they come into the game as back-to-back NCHSAA 4AA State Champions. Independence finished their impressive 2014 regular season undefeated, falling only to Hough in the 3rd round of the NCHSAA 4AA State Championship playoffs.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools Middle School Athletics. Tickets can be purchased in advance online: $10 for Saturday’s doubleheader.

 Complete North Carolina schedule

CONCORD, N.C. (June 16, 2015) – Charlotte-area mascots took over the frontstretch quarter-mile oval of Charlotte Motor Speedway as Hugo the Hornet scored the win in the third round of the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout Series. Devin O’Connell and Daniel Wilk were among the winners in the full slate of Legend Car and Bandolero feature events on Tuesday night.

Lug Nut, the world’s fastest mascot, was defeated in the Mascot Mania go-kart race as Hugo the Hornet took home the win in the furriest feature of the evening. The Charlotte Hornets mascot paced the field for most of the race, crossing the line ahead of RevPar of the Cabarrus County Convention and Visitors Bureau in second and Sir Purr of the Carolina Panthers in third.

Rounding out the field was Big Stuff from Winthrop University, Blue from Charlotte Hounds Lacrosse, Bo from Bojangles’, Norm the Niner from UNC Charlotte, Lug Nut, Chubby Checker with the Charlotte Checkers and Tim E. Gator from the Kannapolis Intimidators.

O’Connell raced his way to the checkered flag in Tuesday night’s Semi-Pro feature. After reaching the 20-minute time limit, the 25-lap race was called after lap 11. Joe Graf Jr. was the leader for the first six laps of the race while O’Connell battled neck-and-neck with Sheldon Crouse before taking the second position. O’Connell was able to take the lead from Graf on lap 7 prior to a wreck in Turn 3 involving Riley Herbst and held on to the top spot after the caution, cruising to the victory. Crouse and Jensen Jorgensen finished second and third, respectively.

There was a tough start for the LiveWell Homes Bandolero Bandits feature Tuesday evening as multiple cautions marred the beginning of the race. There were fierce battles between Wilk, DJ Canipe and Cameron Bolen throughout the 20-lap feature, but it would be Wilk who crossed the line to win his third race of the season. Canipe finished second, followed by Bolen.

Other winners included Leland Honeyman in the Beginner Bandits division, Michael Torres in the Legend Car Pro division, Ashton Higgins in the Bandolero Outlaws division, Ryan Millington in the Young Lions division and Tom Pistone in the Security Force Legend Car Masters division.

The Bojangles’ Summer Shootout racing action continues at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Tuesday, June 23, with Media Mayhem. Media members will take to the track in what has become one of the most fiercely contested and highly anticipated school bus races of the summer. Fans are encouraged to come out and watch their favorite local media personality’s search for a victory, alongside the Legend and Bandolero cars on the front-stretch quarter mile.
